Seeing a Chiropractor After an Auto Accident

Auto accidents are among the most traumatic experiences a person can go through, and no two crashes are ever exactly the same.  Understanding this, it makes sense that each person's post-accident recovery will never fare in exactly the same manner.  Regardless of the seriousness of the crash or the extent of one's injuries, the worst thing a person can do is wait; wait to see which pains go away on their own, and which pains are worthy of professional treatment.  Waiting allows unaddressed damage to intensify, often making otherwise simple injuries more difficult to correct later.

Many of the most common injuries suffered during car accidents include those to the back, neck and shoulder regions.  And while Whiplash is arguably the most frequently suffered of all car accidents, they can also affect the hips, wrists, knees and other structures depending on the angle and force of impact.  Here are a few things to consider when deciding whether to see a chiropractor after an accident:

Seek Treatment Soon to Expedite the Recovery Process

The spine instantly absorbs great deals of force at the moment of impact during an accident, some of which transfers energy deep within the spinal column's complex network of nerve bundles.  These injuries don't always manifest as noticeable discomfort right away, through the damage is done and can get worse the longer you delay seeking treatment.  At our Frisco TX chiropractic center, we use a combination of traditional therapies and advanced, modern technologies to identify and treat damage at the root source.

Explore all of Your Recovery & Treatment Options

While a strong percentage of chiropractors are using both conventional and modern treatment therapies, there are still those who exclusively specialize in one or the other.  There's nothing wrong with this, though it may not help you; especially if the therapy you need is not on their list of therapeutic services.  At Hoogeveen Chiropractic in Frisco TX, we're proud to provide one of the most comprehensive selections of both traditional chiropractic care, as well as some of today's most innovative pain elimination therapies, including ARPwave and others.

New Therapies Help Prevent the Need for Surgery

There's no arguing that some people do, in fact, find success with pain-related surgery.  What fails to get reported with as much enthusiasm, is the number of patients who see little to no improvement after surgery, or those who end up worse than before going under the blade.  The reality is that not everyone needs surgery after a car accident.  This is a new era of injury recovery and some of the technologies available are nothing short of miraculous.  Look for a Frisco TX chiropractor who does not restrict your options to just two or three therapy choices.
