Let the Chiropractor Help with Your Factoria Car Accident Treatment
After a car accident, there are several phone calls you will need to make. The first is usually to the insurance company to start the process of getting damages fixed. The second call should be to your doctor for a thorough checkup, assuming you didn’t have to go to the hospital immediately. It’s a good idea to take off work the day of an accident and even the next day, giving your body a little time to heal before you get back into the swing of things. Another call you should add to your Factoria car accident treatment program is the local chiropractor.
The forces in an accident will whip your body around. While seatbelts and airbags may hold you in the seat and prevent you from hitting the windshield, your back is still placed under an incredible strain every time. Your body is whipped forward a few inches to a full foot before the restraining systems violently send your body back against the seat. The sudden starts and stops are extremely traumatic to your back.
It’s normal not to feel a lot of pain immediately after an accident. Your adrenaline is flowing and the excitement of the moment temporarily interferes with pain receptors. As the moment passes and you calm down, however, the pain will start to set in. Factoria car accident treatment at the PrimeSpine clinic in Bellevue includes massage therapy. The active work on your back will help the muscles that have tensed to relax. Endorphins, natural painkillers, will be released by your system, allowing the pain you feel throughout your body to recede.
This treatment will be combined with some physical therapy and careful, effective spinal adjustments. In addition to receiving fast pain relief, you will also be receiving necessary treatments that will help keep your back healthy and stable. Appointments are being accepted now at PrimeSpine and walk-ins are always welcome.
