Massage and Chiropractic Care after a car accident

Did you know that in the state of Arizona, there were over 100,000 car accidents in 2012 (https://www.azdot.gov/mvd/Statistics)? Rear-end accidents were the most common type of crash, undoubtedly causing whiplash to the drivers, amongst numerous other injuries. Whiplash type injuries can result in headaches and severe pain due to torn muscles and strained tendons.

The combination of regular adjustments and massage therapy are very important, especially if you have been involved in an auto or motorcycle accident. As soon as you are in a car accident, you need to seek medical attention right away, and if you are not severely injured, then calling your local chiropractor is the next step.

Many injured patients wait a day or two to see their chiropractor, but as the hours tick on after your accident, your muscles continue to contract and swelling increases. The day of your accident is the day you should get an examination from your chiropractor.

Schedule you appointment with Dr. Enriquez today and he will customize a plan to help encourage natural healing, which will most likely include massage therapy as well.

    Recently I took my 21 month old daughter Natalie to see Dr Mark Smith who has been my morehts chiropractor for just over a year. I was concerned that Natalie appeared to be having trouble walking straight. She appeared very stiff and bent over while walking. After the treatment i was thrilled to see that her posture improved significantly and Natalie went from being very bent over to almost straight. Natalie is now walking around and climbing so much more since the treatment. I wish to give Dr Smith a big thank you. – Sarah

    I’m glad that this article talked about getting examined by your chiropractor soon after your accident. I got in a car accident recently and wasn’t sure what I should do. I’ll start looking for chiropractors right away. Thanks for the advice!
