Auto Accident Injury
Auto accidents are responsible for over 50 million cases of injury or disabilities. Seeking medical care following an auto accident is imperative to reduce pain and the risk of long-term injury. Automobile accidents and whiplash injuries are some of the worst injuries we see in our clinic. Whether you were involved in a large crash or a minor fender bender, we can help. Don’t be misled by the minimal damage to your car. Research shows that even low-speed auto impacts can cause severe injuries. Dr. Simmonds has helped many people heal from their injuries sustained in an auto accident.
We focus on treating the body as a whole, helping to heal injuries before they lead to chronic pain. At Elevate Wellness, we provide non-surgical treatments to stimulate the body’s healing capabilities. We will restore range of motion, improve flexibility, and reduce inflammation through our effective and proven auto accident treatments.
Auto Accidents Lead to Hidden Damage Throughout the Body
It’s common to justify away injuries after an auto accident. Just because your car shows moderate or little damage, it doesn’t mean your body isn’t injured. Research proves that even a small fender bender bump can lead to bodily injuries. When the muscles are suddenly forced and extended beyond their normal range of motion, it causes soft tissue damage. In many cases, whiplash and other minor injuries won’t appear for a few weeks after the car accident. It is essential to visit a medical professional after a car accident to ensure you do not have additional injuries.
We often see patients in our Bountiful chiropractic office with auto accident injuries. We focus on helping patients find relief from pain without the need for prescription pain killers as they simply mask the problem they don’t treat. You need to seek chiropractic care if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms following a car accident:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Blurred vision
- Limited mobility
- Reduced range of motion
Car accidents cause sudden, jarring trauma to the body. Without effective treatment, a minor whiplash injury can lead to long-term pain.
Car Accident Chiropractic Care
We focus on treating the root source of injury, not just masking the pain. Dr. Simmod’s specializes in car accident injury treatments. During an initial consultation, Dr. Simmod’s will identify specific aspects causing pain and recommend a personalized patient treatment program designed to reduce inflammation and promote healing. Micro-tears commonly occur within the ligaments and muscles following a car accident. Patients suffering from micro-tears can experience intense to moderate pain for days, weeks, months, and potentially years following a car accident. Whiplash is the number one cause of micro-tear injuries.
As the muscles are not adapt to the forceful, rapid side-to-side movement, it is common to experience painful micro-tears. We focus on helping to restore the muscles and ligaments to their proper state. With effective manipulations and modalities, patients will see a decrease in inflammation due to the body’s natural healing capabilities of releasing nutrients into the bloodstream, speeding up the healing process.
Why Chiropractic Care?
When your body has been injured in a car accident, we recommend contacting our office as soon as possible. Getting you onto the path of proper treatment will promote effective healing. Our treatment methods are designed to reduce pain and inflammation, promote healing, and restore motion throughout the body.
Inflammation causes dysfunction throughout the body and slows down the healing process. Our chiropractic treatments focus on adjusting the body to help promote proper blood flow and nerve communication. As the body begins to be restored to its natural state, patients find relief from pain and often start feeling better after their first visit.
When the body starts to heal following a car accident, it causes scar tissue to develop on the muscles. In most cases, scar tissue leads to stiffness and discomfort. We target the scar tissue and muscular damage to break it up, allowing the body to heal correctly and faster. Effective chiropractic treatment will reduce pain throughout the body by stimulating the body to release pain-reducing hormones. People who have received effective chiropractic treatment following a car accident report a significant decrease in pain and can often avoid surgery for minor injuries.
