Healing Soft Tissue Injuries with Chiropractic Care

An auto accident threatens your health and safety. Forces from sudden stops, jolts, and collisions can cause trauma or damage to muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other soft or connective tissues. Such forces during auto accidents can lead to injuries like whiplash, sprains, strains, muscle tears, inflammations, and bruises. These injuries may seem minor, but they significantly impact your mobility and cause pain and discomfort, affecting your quality of life. 

Regain your mobility and heal from soft tissue injuries with chiropractic care. Keep reading to learn how this non-invasive approach to healing soft tissue injuries after auto accidents works.

How Auto Accidents Cause Soft Tissue Injuries

It boils down to the sudden acceleration, deceleration, and impact force. During a collision, the sudden stop, jolt, or change in motion exerts heavy force on our bodies. That stresses the soft tissues tremendously, stretching them beyond their normal range of motion.

For example, whiplash injuries during rear-end collisions result from the rapid back-and-forth movement of the head and neck. That causes the soft tissues around the neck to overstretch, spraining or straining them. The injury manifests as pain and stiffness in the neck and shoulders, dizziness, and headaches.

Aside from whiplash, other soft tissue injuries that can occur in auto accidents are strains, sprains, muscle tears, and contusions or bruises. Such injuries are often overlooked due to them feeling minor or negligible. When left untreated for too long, however, these can result in permanent complications. 

Seeking chiropractic care promptly after an auto accident is crucial to improve recovery and help reduce the chance of chronic pain and lasting complications from soft tissue injuries.

Healing soft tissue injuries after auto accidents isn't a one-time-only fix. Ongoing chiropractic care and rehabilitation are essential for lasting healing and preventing the recurrence of the injuries. These post-treatment care and rehabilitation programs vary from one case to another and depend on the extent of your soft tissue injuries. 

You can also support your recovery with lifestyle changes. Regular exercises focusing on muscle strengthening and flexibility training help. Ergonomic adjustments in your workplace and daily activities can go a long way, too. Adjusting your seat height, providing support for your neck and back, and practicing proper posture can promote recovery and prevent injuries. 

Moreover, you can minimize the risk of future soft tissue injuries by practicing safe driving habits. Wear seatbelts, stay well below the speed limit, and don't drink and drive. Maintaining a good posture while driving also helps lower the risk of soft tissue injuries by reducing the strain on your back, shoulders, and neck. Your car seat adjustments can do wonders in that aspect.
