Chiropractic Care After an Auto Accident
If you or someone you know from Spartanburg, South Carolina has been in an auto accident, a chiropractic check-up should be the next thing on your list. Motor vehicle accidents (even the small fender benders) can be very detrimental to your spine, especially the neck. Many times, pain isn’t felt until 24-48 hours after the accident. The pain can range anywhere from soreness to severe pain.
Auto accidents lead to misalignments of the vertebrae of your spine, resulting in compressed nerves, muscle spasms, and joint pain. Left untreated, these misaligned vertebrae can lead to bulging discs, permanent nerve damage, and arthritis. Many times, a new patient will come into my office who has been struggling with problems for years that originated from an auto accident.
Treatment for patients who have been injured in an auto accident is fairly straight forward. We begin with a thorough examination which usually includes x-rays. Following the exam, a plan of care is created based off of the findings. Over the next several weeks, gentle corrections are made to properly align your spine and to get your spine back to its most optimum health possible.
We also have built relationships with local attorneys to make sure that you are being treated fairly by the auto insurance companies. If the time ever arises where you have been involved in an auto accident, we are here to help you recover and get your spine healthy again.
