Three Techniques from a Chiropractor that Can Treat Car Accident Back Pain

Vehicular accidents can lead to various injuries, including back problems. Some patients complain of persistent back pain which affects not only their physical well-being but also their psychological welfare due to the anxiety it causes. If you’re interested but don’t know enough about chiropractic care for car accident back pain, read on and learn about the three techniques that a chiropractor can use to reduce joint inflammation and relieve back pain.

Spinal Manipulation

One of the most often used techniques for treating auto accident back injuries is spinal manipulation, also called traditional high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust. To perform this method, a chiropractor uses his hands or tools to exert a controlled and sudden force on affected joints while the body is angled in a particular manner, wherein the pressure creates a perceptible popping sound. Spinal manipulation can enhance or restore joint function which means you can move that part of your back again that you can barely shift due to pain. Furthermore, an HVLA thrust can relieve both joint inflammation and back pain. At the same time, while spinal manipulation may sound unnerving, it is considered generally safe with little to no side effects apart from a slight tenderness on the manipulated area which may last for 24 to 48 hours.
