If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you should consider chiropractic whiplash care, as it is an ideal approach to healing such issues that are often the result of a wreck. Health Edge Group in North Charleston, SC is ready to help if you’ve been injured in a car accident. We are dedicated to helping Charleston area patients and are committed to providing chiropractic solutions such as whiplash treatment to address your unique needs, including pain relief after an accident.
What is Whiplash and How Can Whiplash Treatment from a Chiropractor Help?
Whiplash is probably the most common injury people sustain when in an auto accident and can have painful and often long lasting effects. Whiplash occurs when the head and/or neck is quickly and unexpectedly “whipped” as a reaction to the impact of the wreck.
When the body is whipped, and jerked around forcefully and unexpectedly as in an auto accident, muscles may get strained, ligaments are torn or stretched, and bones can even become mis-aligned. These reactions can cause stress to the body, including whiplash.
Chiropractic care immediately after an auto accident is crucial, as injuries sustained from wrecks may not be immediately obvious to the victim. In fact, some injuries from automobile accidents can actually take several days, or even weeks to present themselves. Immediate attention from our caring chiropractor at Health Edge Group after the accident ensures that any obvious as well as potentially hidden injuries will get the attention they deserve. If there is a need, a whiplash treatment plan can be implemented as soon as possible to get you feeling better fast.
Why Chiropractic Care is Best for Whiplash Care
After an accident, the body needs more than just pain relief that traditional medicine typically addresses with prescription drugs that only offers temporary relief. Chiropractic care specializes in the wellness of bones, nerves, muscles, and connective tissue and not only helps a patient to heal after an accident, but aims to provide a pain-free lifestyle for the long-term.
Instead of treating the pain with temporary fixes like medicine, whiplash care from a chiropractor consists of spinal and neck adjustments that will relieve pressure on damaged muscles and nerves. The realignment of the spine allows the body to begin the healing process with focus on the muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems of the body.
Dr. Carolyn Hunter, our North Charleston, SC chiropractor will access the injuries within the body and offer treatment via adjustments, stretches and all-natural recommendations so that you completely heal, which includes regaining strength, proper alignment and muscle control.
