Car Accident Injury Treatment
A car accident injury or car crash, even if it’s a “minor” one is always an unwanted event. This can be a big disruption in your busy life and can cause months of stress and unexpected pain. But by providing an interventional pain management by a pain doctor and a chiropractor would help someone get back to its normal physiological state. With proper car accident injury management, a patient can get back to his regular routine much faster and reduce the onset of chronic problems.
What to Expect After Having A Car Accident?
When injured, the body tenses the muscles and causes inflammation around the injured area to “protect” the injury from further damage. Unfortunately, this mechanism can cause problems down the road, such as neck pain, back pain, knee pain, elbow and even ankle pain. If left untreated, the “protected” area will lose motion and flexibility. This can result in reduced mobility in the muscles and joints.
A study in Sweden compared individuals who received prompt treatment and used gentle neck exercises right after the injury had much improved flexibility and usage, even after three years post-collision.
There are many reasons why active, early care helps after whiplash:

- Activity increases blood flow in the injured area and improves healing.
