Whiplash is one of the most significant consequences of a car accident. The sudden force and movement of an accident can cause pain and dysfunction that extends beyond your neck and shoulders. If you have whiplash, you might have symptoms including headaches, fatigue, and loss of arm function. Fortunately, chiropractic care offers seven significant benefits if you’re suffering from whiplash.

Benefit 1: Quick Relief For Pain

Since whiplash happens as a result of such a violent motion, it produces a lot of inflammation and pain. Fortunately, chiropractic care focuses on correcting the underlying tissue damage and spinal misalignment that cause whiplash pain. Hands-on chiropractic adjustment can restore healthy alignment and begin to provide needed pain relief in just a few weeks. Lasers, ultrasound, and other therapeutic tools we use can provide deep heat for immediate pain relief.

Benefit 2: Eliminate or Reduce Surgical Risk

Whiplash is a condition that doesn’t heal on its own. While some symptoms fade in weeks or months, other car accident-related issues require surgical intervention. Our noninvasive techniques can provide pain relief and promote healing in many cases. Suppose you have a condition such as a fracture or badly torn disc that requires surgery. In that case, the supportive care we offer can help extend the relief you get from your procedure, delaying or eliminating the need for additional surgeries and the risk that comes with such procedures.

Benefit 3: Drug-free Treatment

Big Pharma loves to market a pill for every ill, and pain is no exception. Thanks to marketing, one of the first moves most Americans make after car accidents is to medicate their pain away. Unfortunately, like the commercials, any side effects are quickly dismissed or not considered at all.

While many prescription and over-the-counter pain medications do provide relief, they also have side effects such as constipation, brain fog, nausea, headaches, and many others. Sometimes, the side effects can make you feel worse than the original pain. Our natural chiropractic methods, on the other hand, don’t have a lengthy list of side effects and provide the relief you need.

Another issue with pain medications is addictive potential. Although prescription pain medications make surgery and other important medical procedures possible, they can be highly addictive. On the other hand, our chiropractic adjustments and other techniques harness your body’s natural painkillers to provide natural, nonaddictive, effective relief for your aching neck, shoulders, and other areas affected by whiplash.

Benefit 4: Treatments for Underlying Issues

One of the main secrets of chiropractic care is that we address the underlying issues causing your pain. We don’t mask it with a medication that causes enough side effects to take your mind off of your pain. Instead, we look for the underlying issues and treat them.

When you come to see us after an accident, we conduct onsite Digital X-rays and extensive functional assessments. We watch you while you sit, stand, and move, so we can see what movements are triggering your pain and which exercises might help relieve it. Imaging studies support our diagnoses and help demonstrate that treatment is working.

Benefit 5: Individualized Care

Individualized scans and assessments mean that we can diagnose the combination of functional issues and pain you’re experiencing. This results in care that is customized for your physical needs.

Since our Denver Chiropractic, LLC team is committed to treating you as a whole person. Therefore, we also learn the names of your family members, favorite sports, and other details that make you unique. This enables us to create care plans that help you meet your life goals.

Benefit 6: Research-supported Therapies and Technologies

While we care about the personal touch, first and foremost, we are a medical practice. Therefore, we scrutinize every therapy, treatment, and recommendation we make for our patients. Your health is a price we’re never willing to pay. When you come to our office, you won’t be our guinea pig or receive a treatment we just read about and wanted to try on a whim. Every method we employ and technology-based treatment we offer is research-backed and meets our stringent quality control standards.

Benefit 7: Documentation for Your Legal Needs

After a car accident, getting out of pain is such a priority that taking legal action might not have even entered your mind. Unfortunately, courts have deadlines for when paperwork must be submitted to file charges. In the midst of your pain and changed life, you might find keeping up with health appointments and car insurance matters difficult.

Fortunately, our chiropractic team has experience with such matters. We’ve dealt with hundreds of lawyers and insurance companies, so we know what kinds of documentation they need to proceed with your case. The upheaval and pain you’ve been through are tremendous. We believe that you deserve a fair chance at justice, and that begins with documentation that objectively tells the court the nature and extent of your life-altering injuries.
