Auto Accident Care

What A Chiropractor Can Do For You After An Auto Accident

Even if you don’t recognize it right away, a car accident can take a brutal toll on our bodies. It can take hours or even days to set in, but suddenly you may notice that you can’t turn your neck or that your body aches all over.

Accidents can cause inflammation, pinched nerves, torn ligaments and other injuries to the musculoskeletal system. Instead of relying on pain meds to get you through, why not provide your body with the ongoing therapeutic care it needs to promote faster and more effective healing? Here at Milton Chiropractic & Rehabilitation, this is exactly what we do.

After a car accident, you may be looking for the best solution for alleviating your pain, swelling and inflammation. Of course, we also know that many people are looking for more natural solutions that don’t have them reliant on painkillers or even surgery. Did you know, that chiropractic care offers a conservative treatment option that can be tailored to your needs to help ease your car accident injuries and stimulate the body’s natural healing response?

Here at Milton Chiropractic & Rehabilitation, our team offers a variety of treatment options that can be customized to your needs. Many people coming into our office are dealing with these common injuries after an auto accident,

  • Whiplash, which causes neck stiffness and pain

  • Limited range of motion, particularly in the neck

  • Dizziness

  • Headaches

  • Back pain

  • Shoulder pain

  • Strains and sprains

Even after a car accident it’s a good idea to consult with your chiropractor as soon as possible, as symptoms may not appear right away but could still be impacting spinal function. Regular chiropractic adjustments, or spinal alignments, can help to realign the spine, take pressure off certain muscles or areas of the body and promote blood flow to these areas to facilitate healing.

When people think of chiropractic care they often think of spinal adjustments, but we offer an extensive array of treatment options and non-invasive treatments that can help treat your injuries post-car accident. Some of the other services we offer include,

  • Lifestyle changes and recommendations

  • Nutritional counseling (what you eat can also promote faster healing)

  • Physical therapy and corrective exercises

  • Ultrasound therapy

  • Electrical muscle stimulation

  • Cryotherapy

  • Mechanical traction

  • Massage therapy

  • Spinal decompression

  • Moist heat therapy

  • Cold laser therapy (only offered at our Quincy, MA, practice)
