Nearly 40,000 people die in car accidents each year in the U.S., and almost 2.4 million are injured, according to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Many car accident injuries can be serious, and even relatively mild injuries can interfere with the activities of daily living and have a significant impact on quality of life. Fractures, sprains, head and neck injuries, and soft tissue injuries can require months and even years of therapy to resolve, causing symptoms not just in the injured area, but throughout the entire body.
All too often, the physicians and other healthcare providers enlisted to treat injuries following accidents fail to achieve complete relief, either because they aren’t trained in proactive treatment of musculoskeletal injuries or because they don’t have experience in utilizing the body’s own natural healing processes as part of treatment.
The Effects of Car Accidents on Your Body
Your body is an interconnected network of bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and other tissues, and each part of that network affects, and is affected by, other parts. That’s why when one area of the body is injured, it can have far-reaching effects on other areas as well. Yet, even many healthcare practitioners don’t understand the interrelationships that exist among all these different areas of the body, focusing treatment only on one area and failing to provide true, long-lasting relief.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Chiropractic care is based on an understanding that every part of the body is interconnected, and often treating one area means relieving stress, strain and pressure in other areas. The spine is the main conduit for nerves that travel from the brain to other areas of the body. Sometimes, the spine can slip out of alignment, especially following an accident, pressing on nerves and interfering with signals from the brain and making accident-related injuries more difficult to treat. Chiropractic works by realigning the spine and relieving pressure on nerves to restore function and relieve painful symptoms associated with car accident injuries, no matter where those symptoms occur.
