So many new Frisco chiropractic patients arrive after car accidents that we’ve thought of changing our name! “Accident Chiropractic Frisco” seems about right. Fortunately the accidents are usually minor and the people involved are able to walk away, seemingly unaffected.
They may experience a little stiffness or soreness at first, which is usually ignored by the drivers and passengers as they are so relieved to have escaped major injury. However it is quite common for car accident injury to go hidden for weeks or months. When discomfort from the injury does begin it may be experienced as headaches and tension, with increasing levels of back and neck pain.
The symptoms may worsen over time preventing him or her from performing their normal daily activities and may eventually completely debilitate a person. Many people suffer from these symptoms without realizing that their injuries resulted from their seemingly small car accident.
Without getting properly diagnosed, some people will use painkillers or wear braces to temporarily reduce the pain. Months or years of needless suffering can result.
Car accident victims would do well to visit a chiropractor. Chiropractic doctors specialize in treating soft tissue damage and structural mis-alignments, and, here at Wellness Care Chiropractic Frisco we are very familiar with car accident chiropractic for injuries.
We take x-rays and assess your injuries. When we show our patients their films most are surprised how very misaligned their necks and joints get from low-speed car accidents. Receiving regular chiropractic care is a natural way to relieve the pain and tension caused by whiplash and other accident-related injuries.
Dr. Hansen or I will readjust your neck and back, gently getting it into proper alignment. Typically we will use muscle stimulation devices to reduce tension, and finally, we train you to do correct exercises to strengthen specific muscles. As chiropractors we treat pain naturally and directly by correcting the underlying musculo-skeletal imbalances rather than by prescribing drugs.
I believe in and practice chiropractic care in Frisco because it is natural and not invasive. No surgery tools, cutting, or blood loss is involved. All alignments of joints are done with the force of our hands. At Wellness Care Chiropractic we provide provide relief treatment for your problem, therapeutic massages, nutritional advice, and specific exercises to restore and promote your overall health.
Be wise! See us soon after an accident to be certain you don’t have hidden injuries that may affect you later. Don’t wait until the insurance company quickly closes your case! Often insurance policies cover the complete cost of chiropractic for car accident injuries.
