Chiropractic Auto Injury Treatment in Duluth - Should You Try It?

Written By Duluth Injury & Rehab Center on January 5, 2021

rsz autoaccident2You’ve recently been in a car accident but you’re not in that much pain. Do you need to see a Duluth chiropractor for auto injury treatment?

Some would say no. After all, why see a healthcare professional if you’re only experiencing a bit of discomfort? 

While some will tell you to just “wait it out,” unfortunately, doing so could cause irreversible damage. 

What Happens to Your Body When You Experience an Injury?

When you sustain a soft tissue injury, your body reacts in two ways. 

First, it goes through an inflammatory response, which causes swelling and stiffness. Inflammation informs the immune system that it needs to start the healing process to prevent infection and repair damaged tissues.

The next response is scar tissue buildup. Scar tissue is not skin. It’s a collection of collagen protein cells that grow in a single direction. Though the scar tissue can repair injured tissues, it’s not as flexible as skin or muscle tissues because of the single directional growth factor. Therefore, as it builds up, it can cause tightness, reducing flexibility and range of motion. 

How Chiropractic Auto Injury Treatment Can Help

Failing to treat your injuries – even if they’re minor – can lead to chronic inflammation and irreversible loss of flexibility and mobility.

Consulted early enough, your Duluth chiropractor can provide an auto injury treatment plan that can prevent long-term damage. Your chiropractor can recommend

  • Chiropractic adjustments 
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Electro-muscle stimulation
  • Therapeutic exercises and stretches
  • Whole-body vibrational therapy
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Intersegmental traction
  • Therapeutic ultrasound

The above therapies are often used in conjunction to:

  • Break up scar tissue 
  • Prevent further scar tissue development
  • Reduce pain
  • Increase flexibility
  • Reduce inflammation
