4 Reasons Why You Should Consider Receiving Chiropractic Treatment After An Accident In Texas

After experiencing an accident, your body can mask your pain because of an influx of adrenaline in your body. Adrenaline is a hormone released by your adrenal glands that induces the “fight or flight” feeling you get when in a high-stress situation. The adrenaline can mask your true pain for hours after the accident, which is why it's so important to follow up with your primary doctor. The day after your accident, you will feel your pain in real time and understand the trauma your body endured better.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, 205,498 persons were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2020. Those injuries are critical to take care of and need medical attention immediately.

Chiropractic care is a form of medicine concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, which makes chiropractic a good option for people who have been involved in motor vehicle accidents. The primary functions of chiropractic care are:

  1. Aligning the spinal column: Back strains and sprains are pretty common after automobile accidents in Texas. Depending on the impact, the crash could have caused your muscles to stretch beyond capacity. This can even cause muscle spasms or cramps when you move. Chiropractic care may help bring the spine back into proper alignment.
  2. Reduce pain & inflammation: Receiving chiropractic care may reduce pain and inflammation. During chiropractic treatments, spinal manipulations cause the body to release pain-relieving hormones. Doing this can also reduce inflammatory cytokine production. An excess of inflammation in the spine can cause stiffness and pain.
  3. Decreased need for medication: Many victims of car crashes are prescribed mild to serious pain medication to help the healing process. Some victims wish to not take these medications in fear of addiction or relapse. This is the perfect solution for people who prefer medication-free pain relief. 
  4. Long-term benefits: Receiving chiropractic care can prevent serious issues from developing at a later time. This in turn can save you money down the line on procedures you would have to endure if preventive care wasn't taken.

Most importantly, a chiropractor can act as a starting point for other treatment, referring you to imaging, pain management, or specialist care if you need it.
