A car accident can turn your life upside down. Whiplash, back injuries, bruised and battered knees cause pain that can be difficult to move forward from. Medication can mask symptoms, but the root of your pain needs to be addressed before you can move on from your injury.
At JNT Natural Medicine in Memphis, Tennessee, we are committed to finding the most noninvasive options to help you recover from injuries sustained in a car accident. Alan James, DC, and Chris Cummins, MD, believe in providing holistic therapies that can relieve car accident pain naturally, so you can return to your regular routine as soon as possible.
Car accidents typically cause the most damage to the head, neck, spine, or knees. The impact causes the body to experience whiplash even when it is a relatively low-speed collision. The head may impact the windshield or dashboard, while the knees are slammed into a steering column. If you aren’t wearing a seatbelt, you may be thrown from the vehicle, sustaining even more serious injuries.
Pain can be muscular, which can often be treated with therapeutic massage, physical therapy, or electrical muscle stimulation (EMS). If any muscles have suffered microscopic tears as a result of the accident, Dr. James and Dr. Cummins can work with you to nurture the affected areas and boost the healing process.
Pain can also be nerve related. Much nerve pain is the result of compression, which happens when bones in the spine or joints are smashed together and the discs or cartilage damaged. It can be addressed with chiropractic manipulation, decompression techniques, and pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy.
Some people may not realize how injured they are until a few days after the accident. This is why it is important for you to be checked out by a doctor as soon as possible. At our office, we can correctly evaluate your entire body and discover if you’ve suffered injuries that you haven’t noticed yet.
By making an appointment as quickly as you can, you can receive the best care and get back on your feet faster. Your pain will be managed from the earliest moment after your crash, and minimized as much as possible.
