How Chiropractors Approach Auto Injury Treatment

Written By John J. Giovanelli, D.C., P.C. on August 24, 2018

If you’ve been in a motor vehicle accident (MVA), you know that the trauma doesn’t end at the scene.

Many people suffer through neck and back pain, or whiplash, even if they weren’t seriously injured in an accident.

Chiropractors like John J. Giovanelli offer unique and safe auto injury treatment to gently treat the spine and soft tissues that may be damaged. 

It is no coincidence that people injured in motor vehicle accidents seek out chiropractic care when studies show that treatment plans including spinal manipulation can help control persistent pain.

What Type of Auto Injuries Can Chiropractors Treat?

With the exception of injuries that need immediate emergency medical attention, chiropractors can treat all of the common MVA related injuries. Most people experience lasting back and neck pain that can sometimes begin well after the accident.

One of the most common pains associated with auto injuries is whiplash which is pain caused by the rapid movement of your neck during an accident. Whiplash results in neck pain that can range from a minor inconvenience to serious loss of mobility.

If left untreated, whiplash can have a real impact on your overall health. In addition to neck pain, it can also cause fatigue, dizziness, headaches, nausea and difficulty sleeping. More chronic cases of whiplash can also result in neurological problems like increased anxiety and depression.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Auto Injury Treatment

For many people suffering from pain after an auto injury, chiropractors offer a safe, effective, and non-invasive alternative to medication and surgery.

Chiropractors have the ability to target specific areas of your spine and underlying tissue to both alleviate pain and restore your range of motion.

Everyone can benefit from chiropractic care. However, for auto injury treatment, the specific benefits include:

  • Reduce inflammation without medication
  • Accelerated healing process with no long-lasting side effects
  • Less pain in the entire body (in addition to the targeted areas)
  • Preventative care for future spine issues
  • Less scar tissue

The faster you seek out chiropractic care after an MVA, the quicker your body will be able to recover. Scheduling regular adjustments will increase the strength of your spine while decreasing your chance to develop pain.

The chiropractic services offered by John J. Giovanelli are designed to help you feel good.
