Auto Accident Chiropractic Care

The National Highway Safety Traffic Administration recently revealed that most drivers engage in activities that take their focus from the road. These activities include: 66% fiddle with music devices, 31% eat or drink while driving, and over 71% between the ages of 18 and 49 admit they text or talk on the phone while they drive.

Thatcher Chiropractic of Colorado Springs, Colorado, supports the importance of non-invasive spinal adjustments and supplementary treatments for victims of car accidents. James Thatcher, D.C., expects an increase in the number of patients over the summer months due to heavier traffic and more accidents. Chiropractic treatment offers both an effective form of pain management for whiplash as well as a method to heal accidents caused by a collision impact.

With numerous families and college students on the road during the summer break, there's an annual spike in the number of traffic accidents. The summer months (June, July, August) are all high accident months. Dr. Thatcher believes that after a collision, many victims think they're merely bruised or shaken up, when in fact they've suffered injuries related to their muscles and skeleton that isn’t visible without X-rays or other specialized assessments. Conventional treatment for conditions such as whiplash, headaches, back pain, or other complaints resulting from a car accident usually involve prescription painkillers but do not address the cause of the pain.

Thatcher Chiropractic offers rehabilitation in the form of non-invasive spinal adjustments that can help relieve the pressure on pinched nerves. In addition, a rehabilitation plan can also include specific strengthening and corrective exercises that a patient can do at home, as well as supporting therapies such as heat therapy and massage.
