Why Is Chiropractic the Best Choice for Whiplash Treatment?

Written By Absolute Chiropractic & Rehab on May 24, 2019

People needing whiplash treatment in Fort WorthDid you know that someone is injured in a Texas vehicle accident about every two minutes?

If you’ve recently suffered a car accident, you may think you walked away unscathed. The truth is, your musculoskeletal system is extremely delicate and some injuries can take days to present symptoms.

Many people who develop whiplash after an accident don’t even notice pain or other symptoms until the damage has occurred. Chiropractic offers a proactive whiplash treatment that targets your injury before it has time to get worse.

Why Choose Chiropractic?

Each whiplash case is unique. Unlike conventional physicians, your chiropractor won’t tell you to take harmful painkillers and come back when the pain gets unbearable.

Your Fort Worth chiropractor wants to help you avoid pain and damage in the first place. He also doesn’t want you to rely on over-the-counter medications or dangerous opioids to mask your symptoms.

Opioids account for roughly 130 unintentional deaths in the United States every day and don’t do anything to treat your pain. That’s why the American College of Physicians recently updated its guidelines to recommend chiropractic treatment as the first line of defense for chronic pain rather than prescription medications.

Plus, chiropractic care is effective. Nearly half of patients (43%) who suffer from whiplash will develop long-term symptoms but nearly all (93%) show improvement with comprehensive chiropractic care.
