Auto Accident Chiropractic in Commerce City

Having a health assessment done right after an auto accident is important. Even mild symptoms can be evidence of underlying problems that need to be addressed. Chiropractic is one of the only specialties specifically designed to address your injury or trauma site. It has proven effective for pain relief, restoration of function, mobility, and range of motion.

Why Do I Need Chiropractic?

In an auto accident, the occupant is jostled in a short amount of time, transferring forces into the soft tissues which they can’t handle. This may lead to damages, such as disc herniation, or tearing of a ligament, disc or muscle, all of which may lead to inflammation of the nerve and pain.

The most common injury in car crashes is whiplash. The spine accelerates, both forward and reverse, pushing the head down until the chin almost touches the chest, and then snaps backward to impact the head rest.

Healing starts right away, depositing scar tissue. It’s a cheaper quality tissue, and never heals 100%, especially if no care is given. Providing care as soon as possible allows the doctor to assess the areas of damage, to figure out a plan for you to heal in the best way possible, and avoid future issues.

Conditions We Help With

Symptoms from auto accidents don’t always show up immediately; they can take weeks or months to present. If an assessment is not done soon after the accident, it may linger for a long time when the problem is discovered.

Long-term effects from untreated injuries include accelerated spinal degeneration, bone spurs, osteophyte formation, compression on nerves due to herniation, increased stiffness and joint immobility leading to chronic pain.

At Commerce City Chiropractic, the first step is X-rays to look for instability or postural clues indicating damage. Depending on the practice member, we may have to do an MRI. Recovery time depends on the level of damage incurred, averaging 30-40 visits, but may be longer. Our chiropractors collaborate with other medical providers to ensure you have what you need to heal.
