Written By James J. Hether, D.C. on June 16, 2021

rsz autoaccidentAs far as auto accidents go, the top two injuries we see and are most concerned about are whiplash and concussion. A minor version of either of these is a big deal and can lead to long-term health issues if left untreated.

Pain or no pain, get checked out. Chiropractic doctor James J. Hether, DC in DeLand can give you red flags to look for that adrenaline may have masked immediately after an auto accident. On top of that, his documentation is critical should you need to take legal action.

4 Ways Our Chiropractors Helps Car Accident Victims

Our top priorities are to help your body restore range of motion and full physical function. A minor car accident packs enough kinetic energy to cause a misalignment in your spine and throw your body off balance. Our chiropractic adjustments tackle auto accident injuries in four powerful ways:

Pain Reduction - Getting rid of pain in the best possible way is at the forefront of our thoughts. The right adjustment for your injuries tells your body to release pain relieving hormones, like oxytocin, cortisol and neurotensin.

Inflammation Reduction - Inflammation plays the dual role of protecting an injury site and signaling your body to heal the inflamed area. Auto accident injuries, however, can trigger so much inflammation that your body can’t heal efficiently. What our doctors do is help your body moderate inflammation so you heal faster. 

Scar Tissue Reduction - Scar tissue formation plays a similar role to inflammation by adding more protection to an injury site. The challenge is that scarring leads to stiff movements that can be quite painful. Our doctors systematically break up scar tissue to make way for healing, provide pain relief, and restore range of motion.

Preserve Range of Motion - Research has taught the medical community that staying active produces faster and better quality healing than resting an injury. Too much rest makes you even stiffer and leads to losing precious muscle mass. Our doctors help combat stiffness through various chiropractic methods, and work to help you preserve muscle mass.
