Auto Accident Injury

Rehabilitation after an Auto Accident Injury

Auto accidents affect millions of people every year just in the U.S. alone. The great majority tend to involve a bit of minor bruising, a scare, and damage to a vehicle. However, other accidents can be far more serious, involving physical injuries and pain. Injuries after an auto accident may not present symptoms for days or weeks after an accident. That’s why it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible. At Discover Life Chiropractic in Tacoma, WA, we provide natural treatment options for auto accident injuries. We will help you return to living a pain-free life.


Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries

Where traditional medicine often focuses on the visible injuries of an accident, such as broken bones and cuts and bruises, our chiropractors focus on the hidden aspects that often show up later due to joint problems, misalignment, soft-tissue damage, and recurring injury symptoms. It’s quite common for secondary injuries to manifest themselves days after an accident as the body begins to relax and lets itself focus on recovery. This will frequently be seen in the form of mobility loss, deep, sore pain versus sharp sensations from vivid injuries, and a loss of strength or flexibility.

When you visit our chiropractor, we will ask about the accident and your medical history. We will also perform a comprehensive physical exam to look for any underlying injuries. Once we determine what is causing your pain, we can make a proper diagnosis. After a diagnosis, our chiropractor will create a personalized treatment plan for you and your condition.

Treatments and Benefits

Our chiropractor may use one or a combination of methods to treat an auto accident injury. Chiropractic treatment focuses on helping the body heal properly and recover. This includes resolving joint problems and misalignment, soft-tissue injury recovery, muscle guidance and programming during healing, stretching to reduce scarring effects, flexibility and mobility restoration, traction, spinal pressure release, and more.

Whiplash is a common car accident injury. The body goes through many movements in a car accident, especially when hit in multiple directions hard and fast. Treatment often includes dealing with multiple issues versus just one singular injury point.

One of the most common treatment methods we use is spinal adjustments. By realigning the spine, our chiropractor can alleviate back pain and whiplash pain, allowing your body to heal. We may also use massage therapy. This helps reduce inflammation, improve blood flow, and promote natural healing in the body after an accident.

A key advantage of chiropractic treatment is the avoidance of pharmaceuticals and surgical approaches. Instead, our chiropractor focuses on manipulation, external muscle and skeletal structure, and using the body to heal itself naturally.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I have been going to Discover Life Chiropractic for 5 years. I am an athlete who went in with low back pain and some knee issues. It did take time but to this day I do not have low back pain or knee pain as long as I am staying healthy with periodic adjustments. Dr. Dave knows his stuff and is attentive to concerns (if you are feeling something make sure you tell him). I feel so aligned and feel like I am functioning at a high level each day. If I can, I like to use Dr. Daves partnering doctor for extremity adjustments (feet, arms, legs) he is exceptional especially with those! Like with anything you have to be consistent, can't just go 3 times and expect to be healed. Hope this was helpful! Best, Alex

    So... I have had back pain all my life and neck pain from a car accident causing severe and frequent migraines. Other chiropractors just did a "quick fix" that lasted a couple days at most. This chiropractor, David, has practically eliminated my neck pain and migraines and my back pain had decreased tons. Now usually when I have pain it is because I have bad posture or I need to stretch or build up muscle to keep my spine in place. I understand he can only do so much but to be pain free you have to put in work also. WITH ALL THAT SAID, the pain has gone down from constant to occasional and from severe pain to mostly mild and we are still working on it. Would recommend the chiropractic service there to anyone.

    I have experienced fairly sever neck pain for the last few years. Have been to my doctor, had ultrasounds etc. Nothing was working. I started going to David at Discover life a few months ago as a last resort to deal with the pain and the difference is amazing even with just this short amount of time. He explains everything very clearly and even has me doing stretching and work while at home. His staff is great and always friendly when I come in. I would highly recommend Discover Life Chiropractic.
