In many cases after an auto accident, sports injury, or slip and fall, the victim experiences neck pain, or even migraine headache, as a result of the physical stress of the incident. The symptoms of pain and headache can arise due to what is known generally as whiplash. If you are looking for chiropractic care from a “chiropractor near me,” we at American Family Spine and Health in Concord, NC, are here to help.
Holistic and Natural Care
The conventional medical treatment prescribed for whiplash might be either surgery or painkillers. Unfortunately, surgery can have lengthy recovery times and painkillers can have potentially harmful side effects, including addiction.
Chiropractic medicine offers an alternative to surgery or drugs in the treatment of whiplash and the other injuries which can arise after an accident.
Patients complaining of neck pain, back pain, or headaches after an accident might also be suffering from a misaligned vertebra. In such cases, vertebra in the spinal column has been wrenched from its usual position by the accident and may be contributing to the pain.
For such cases, pain relief might be obtained by a chiropractic adjustment. In an adjustment, the chiropractor applies pressure to the part of the back containing the misaligned vertebrae. The goal is to return the back or neck to its natural shape, after which the patient's body might be able to heal more efficiently.
We can also use other types of chiropractic care, such as corrective exercises and lifestyle advice. Corrective exercises can be provided to help you regain strength and flexibility in the affected area so it can not only heal better but potentially even prevent injury in the future.
Sometimes, obstacles to healing come from the way we live our lives. A chiropractor can help you identify unhealthy lifestyle habits so that you can better have the freedom to recover.
