What a Chiropractor Can Do for You When You've Been In A Car Accident
The United States racks up well over 16,000 car accidents daily, totaling over 6 million annually. A sizable portion of them seek chiropractic care, and for good reason.
At Dr. David Wren Chiropractic & Sports Injury in the Albany area, we provide chiropractic care for auto accidents daily. There are four proven ways chiropractic care can benefit you.
4 Non-Invasive Ways Chiropractic Care Helps Car Accident Victims
Ultimately, our chiropractors work to help your body restore range of motion and function properly. A car accident most often means you need an adjustment to restore proper alignment and optimize healing. Here’s the four ways chiropractors optimize the healing process:
Reduce Inflammation - Inflammation is needed to heal but too much slows healing down. Chiropractic manipulation helps regulate the inflammatory response. With just the right amount of inflammation, your body is able to clear out cellular debris and send in healing nutrients.
Reduce Pain - Studies show that chiropractic adjustments stimulate hormone release including oxytocin, neurotensin and cortisol, all of which help calm pain signals and provide relief.
Reduce Scar Tissue - Injury scars muscles and tendons, which can cause pain and stiffness. Our chiropractors carefully and thoroughly break up scar tissue so your body can heal itself.
Preserve Range of Motion - Injury stiffens up your body due to inflammation and swelling. The longer it stays stiff, the more range of motion you must work to regain. That stiffness can cause a misalignment in your spine in various ways, like altered posture or walking gait. Our chiropractors will help your body regain range of motion and perform an adjustment if you need a realignment.

A car accident throws your body out of whack; you most likely need an adjustment to restore physiological balance so something like a little limp doesn’t turn into a hip or knee replacement.
