When your chiropractor applies pressure to specific areas of the spine using her hands or a chiropractic tool, it is called an adjustment. The adjustment gently shifts vertebrae into their correct positions. Adjustments are not painful but may produce a cracking or popping sound called joint cavitation. These sounds occur when your chiropractor has released a buildup of gases within spinal joints which in turn reduces pain and inflammation.


Auto Accident Injury Recovery Strategy


Often pain from a collision will not exhibit itself until days or weeks after an accident. If you wait to seek treatment, the body will produce spasm and scar tissue, which makes healing the injury more difficult. Chiropractic care helps the healing of ligaments, discs, muscles and nerves, injured by the accident, and helps return the body normal function sooner by helping the body to heal naturally, without drugs. Chiropractic treatment seeks to reduce inflammation, swelling, and spasm using various therapies along with removing pressure on injured nerves.

Reduction in Pain


When you visit your chiropractor for auto accident injury treatment, Gateway Chiropractic will begin with a chiropractic adjustment only after an intial exam. A typical adjustment realigns your spine and joints, and reduces pain without the need for drugs or surgery. The goal is to encourage your body’s ability to heal itself by reducing inflammation and swelling. Following a car crash, the sooner inflammation and swelling are reduced, the sooner pressure is relieved on nerves, and the sooner you feel better. If you are suffering from lower back or neck pain, a bulging disc, or herniated disc after your accident, this will reduce that pain naturally.


Laser Therapy


Laser treatments enhance blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, photons of light penetrate deep into tissue and accelerate tissue repair. This reduces inflammation and accelerates the healing of damaged tissues. Laser treatments also reduce the action of pain nerve fibers that send “pain” signals from the cells to the brain. The result greatly helps to reduce the pain for auto accident victims suffering whiplash, delayed onset muscle soreness and other spine or nerve-related problems. Laser treatment can provide faster relief from pain and stiffness without prescription medications.
