Injury From An Accident

  • Minor scrapes
  • Bruising/Contusions
  • Whiplash
  • Neck/Back injuries
  • Concussions
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Fractures
  • Broken bones

Chiropractic After Auto Injury

During an auto accident, the joints in various parts of the body are often jolted, shaken, and banged up. This damages the joints and the spine. Chiropractors specialize in treating these types of injuries. Chiropractic is a full-body approach that also includes inflammation alleviation and long-term injury therapy.  

Reduce Inflammation

Inflammation is the body’s natural reaction to trauma. But inflammation and swelling that doesn’t go away can be detrimental to an individual’s health. Chiropractic treats the underlying injury reducing swelling for the body to heal in an optimal fashion. Because inflammation causes pain, chiropractic addresses inflammation, and pain in different ways. These include:
  • Heat and ice therapy
  • Massage
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Anti-inflammatory diet
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Cold laser therapy
The quicker chiropractic treatment is put into effect after an auto injury, the faster an individual can get back to normal.

Effective Pain Treatment

The spine can experience intense trauma after a car accident. This can cause it to slip out of alignment leading to pain in the back muscles. Auto injuries that result in a bulging or herniated disc that is pressing on a nerve can generate pain that can spread out to the:
  • Head
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Legs
Chiropractic adjusting will bring the spine back into alignment, and treat the cause of the pain. This helps prevent/avoid long-term issues and complications that go with surgery or medications.  

Whiplash Treatment

Whiplash is a common injury after an auto accident. The pain can take days or weeks to present. Without treatment, long-term whiplash injuries can become a chronic condition. Whiplash is an injury to the muscles and ligaments of the neck. Common treatment options include:
  • Massage
  • Spinal manipulation
  • Trigger Point exercises
  • McKenzie exercises
  • Stretching

Reduce Stress and Promote Healing

Even minor auto injuries can cause massive stress in one’s life. Dealing with the insurance, getting the car fixed, and dealing with the pain can take a serious toll. Chiropractic can help reduce stress through therapeutic massage which promotes optimal blood flow, which helps flush toxins and speeds up the healing of damaged and stressed muscles.

Snack Benefits

 

Fullness and Satisfaction

An example is almonds have more influence on satisfaction when eaten as a snack, instead of with a meal. And high-protein yogurt promotes healthy satisfaction more than chocolate or crackers.  

Metabolism Benefits

Eating a high-protein diet has shown to increase the body’s Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). This process uses a lot of energy, meaning the body burns more calories when eating a high-protein snack.  

Body Composition Benefits

For those wanting to build muscle, a high-protein diet is recommended. This is because when exercising muscle is broken down. Protein from the diet has amino acids that repair and rebuild Skeletal Muscle Mass. High-protein snacks can help meet protein recommendations to build Skeletal Muscle Mass.  

Post-Workout

A healthy snack is perfect for replenishing the body’s energy after a workout. Carbohydrates are the body’s preferred source of energy, and protein helps repair the muscle fibers that were broken down. For top benefits, look for a snack that offers a balance of carbohydrates and protein.
