It is a common mistake to think of chiropractors as only being able to perform spinal manipulations or adjustments. After a car accident or a slip and fall, many people do not think of going to a chiropractor for treatment. At Family Wellness Center, our chiropractor in Myrtle Beach can help you heal after a personal injury. In addition to chiropractic services, we also offer a wide range of recovery options for personal injuries.
Chiropractors and Personal Injuries
The most common personal injury after a car accident or slip and fall is whiplash. This is caused when the head and neck are moved in one direction and then suddenly in another. This causes a strain in and around the neck area. Whiplash symptoms may manifest instantly or take hours or days to appear. Neck pain and back pain are very common, but pain can appear in any area of the body after an accident. Some people experience chronic headaches or migraines as well.
Our chiropractor in Myrtle Beach will begin with spinal manipulations and create an individualized treatment plan to provide pain relief and support the recovery process. This helps to align the spine, which can help unlock the pinched nerves or tissues for pain relief. Your relief may even be instant after a few spinal manipulations. Our med spa also offers esthetic treatments, facials, and massage therapy to help you heal and feel better.
Check With Your Doctor
If you have recently been in an accident, it is always a good idea to check with your doctor before making too many changes to your treatment plan. Chiropractic care is safe, even after a car accident. Your doctor will know your medical history and what you need. Chiropractic care is often the preferred method of treatment because it does not rely on pain medication or invasive procedures like surgery to produce results. In most cases, chiropractic care does not interfere with other treatments.
