Auto Injury TreatmentIt takes only a minor fender bender to cause injury. Vehicles are heavy and carry a lot of force even at low speeds. This translates into injuries felt, hours, days, and even months later.

Pain or no pain, we want you to get yourself checked out as soon as possible at Preferred Family Chiropractic in Clermont. Not only can we give you symptoms to be on the lookout for, our thorough exams can help identify the root cause of your pain, and we provide drug-free care.

4 Ways Chiropractic Care Helps Car Accident Victims

The ultimate goal of chiropractic care is to get you moving and functioning optimally as soon as safely possible. A car accident is often violent enough to need an adjustment. Once we know it’s safe, we’ll manipulate your spine to restore balance and proper neural function. And with that taken care of, we work to help your body recover in four highly impactful ways:

Reduce Inflammation - You need inflammation to heal, but not so much that your body can’t heal efficiently. Chiropractic manipulation helps regulate the inflammatory response so your body heals itself as fast as possible.

Reduce Pain - With the right chiropractic techniques we can help your body release more pain-relieving hormones, like oxytocin. Studies like this 2019 one show that the body immediately responds to chiropractic by releasing more oxytocin, cortisol and neurotensin, all of which help make you feel better.

Reduce Scar Tissue - Another necessary part of healing, scar tissue protects an injury site, but a major injury can build up a painful amount of scar tissue and make it hard to move. We work to safely and methodically break up excess scar tissue so you can heal and move efficiently.

Preserve Range of Motion - The human body is designed to move in a certain way. When you’re injured, your body adjusts movement to protect an injury, so the longer you’re injured, the longer you move the wrong way. Improper movement alters the shape of your spine until one of our chiropractors applies an adjustment to balance your body back out and restore proper motion.
