What Happens to the Body After an Auto Accident?

Car Accident Chiropractic in Oregon City

If you become injured in an accident, both the muscles and ligaments are affected. This disrupts the communication in your nervous system. Those that receive prompt care from an auto accident chiropractor like Dr. Pitcairn are less likely to experience long-term issues.

When your neck and back are injured in an accident, the inflammation that occurs afterward will cause even more problems. This inflammation slows the healing process as blood and nutrients cannot make it to the areas where they are needed. Chiropractic adjustments reduce the inflammation that occurs in the soft tissue and restores motion by mobilizing the spine, allowing the healing process to begin.

Your body’s natural response after an injury is to develop scar tissue in your muscles, tendons, and ligaments, causing you to feel stiff and uncomfortable for some time. Chiropractic care can target the damaged areas and break up the scar tissue. This will help you heal faster, in addition to reducing your pain and stiffness. 

If you have recently been in an auto accident, you may be experiencing a range of symptoms and ailments. Here are some common complaints Dr. Pitcairn often hears from clients who have been involved in car accidents:

  • Neck Pain (Whiplash)
  • Neck Stiffness 
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Arm and Leg Pain
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Sciatica Pain
  • Headaches 
  • Vertigo

You may experience varying degrees of the symptoms listed above, or you may have no symptoms at all. If you appear to be “symptom-free,” Dr. Pitcairn advises that the absence of problems shouldn’t deter you from seeking services. Getting on a recovery plan today will help you feel your best.

Chiropractic Benefits After an Auto Accident

Dr. Pitcairn works with individuals and families that have been in accidents ranging from minor to severe. Even if you are not experiencing symptoms or pain, Dr. Pitcairn recommends coming in for a check-up and starting a maintenance plan that will ensure long-term wellness.

If you are experiencing pain after an accident, seeing Dr. Pitcairn can provide the following reliefs:

Relieve Pain

Your muscles and soft tissues can be damaged in an accident. Dr. Pitcairn will help you with pain relief from your injuries. Her treatment plans include careful adjustments that are tailored to your unique injuries and recovery needs.

Restore Mobility

You may lose mobility after an accident if your joints or ligaments are injured. It is not uncommon to experience stiffness or a decreased range of motion. Your neck, back, and other areas may feel restricted in terms of movement.

Reduce Scar Tissue

Scar tissue is the body’s natural response to pain and injury. Even though scar tissue is part of the healing process, it can cause additional pain on top of the primary injury if not addressed. Working with an auto accident chiropractor like Dr. Pitcairn is a great way to prevent and treat scar tissue related pain.

Long-Term Healing

Your body is in a vulnerable state after a car accident. It is important to ensure that existing injuries are treated and future injuries are prevented. To properly heal injuries that have resulted from a car accident and to avoid re-injury, auto injury chiropractic treatment is an effective option.

How Massage Helps After an Auto Accident

Deep Tissue Massage

As one of the most popular massage techniques, deep tissue massages break up scar tissue, remove painful muscle knots, promote a better range of motion, and improve circulation. For this technique, our therapists apply both light and deep pressure to sore muscles using their fingertips, knuckles, palms, forearms, and elbows.

Deep tissue massage is great for problem areas in the body, such as one’s shoulders or back. With slow, deliberate strokes, the muscles, tendons, and deeper layers of tissue under the skin are relieved of tension and pain.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point therapy is a technique used to identify and treat particular areas of pain in the body via trigger points. A trigger point refers to an area within one’s muscle tissue that causes pain somewhere else in the body. For example, pain originating in your back may cause pain in other parts of your body, such as your neck or shoulder.

With trigger point therapy, our massage therapists isolate specific trigger points and use cycles of pressure and release to help you achieve pain relief. For a few seconds, each identified trigger point is held and then released. This type of treatment is not equatable to a typical spa massage. You can expect this kind of treatment to be uncomfortable at times, but to ultimately treat the underlying condition that is causing your pain.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is similar to trigger point therapy, except it focuses on the myofascial connective tissue. Myofascial tissue is a thin tissue that is found throughout the body. It provides support and protection for both your muscles and bones. This type of tissue is made up of collagen and elastin fibers that are both flexible and strong.

During a myofascial release session with one of our experts, you can expect painful pressure to be released from your muscles and tendons. Your massage therapist will use gentle, pointed pressure on specific areas of your body. These various points are held for several minutes to allow the deepest layers of the fascial tissue to release and relax.
