How Colorado Springs Chiropractic and Cox® Technic Can Help After a Motor Vehicle Accident

If you’ve experienced a Colorado Springs motor vehicle accident (MVA), it can leave you with significant back and/or neck pain due to a spine injury. Luckily, the Colorado Springs chiropractic care with Cox® Technic at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR can help alleviate your auto accident pain. Read in for more info on how this form of treatment can help those suffering from severe back pain after a car accident.

IMPAIRMENT AND RETURNING TO WORK ISSUES AFTER AUTO ACCIDENTS

A recent review of published papers on auto accident impairment ratings described a wide range of impairment after an accident - 2% - 23% for car occupants and 2.8% - 46% for cyclists – with cervical spine and neck injuries being the greatest risks for being permanently injured. This led the authors to call for a global way of assessing medical impairment after accidents to reduce psychological and financial burdens for both the injured person and his/her community. (1) In creating guidelines to handle traffic injuries, an expert panel pointed out that injured persons wanted to partner with their healthcare team, wanted a clearer understanding of the healthcare and insurance system sooner after their injury, needed support for their emotional distress, and appreciated uncomplicated explanations with easy-to-understand words. (2) For those who were concerned about returning to work, researchers found that those with higher expectations of returning to work were more likely to do so. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR encourages you to be optimistic and welcomes you as a part of the team for healing!!

GENTLE CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT FOR MVA PAIN RELIEF

Undergoing gentle chiropractic care including Cox® Technic as part of the treatment plan for post-auto accident spine injury, our Colorado Springs patients have reason to be optimistic. Cox Technic is an advanced form of chiropractic care that works to lower inflammation and reduce back pain. It is often used in cases of herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, persistent low back or neck pain after back surgery, and other forms of chronic lower back or neck pain. The technique works by delivering gentle yet firm pressure to manipulate the spine. This helps to restore mobility, decrease inflammation, and lower pain.

Benefits Of Cox Technic & How Does It Work?

One of the biggest benefits of Cox Technic is that it offers relief from chronic lower back or neck pain without using drugs or undergo surgery. During a session, the patient lies down on their stomach (or other modified position for comfort) while the chiropractor uses his/her hands to apply pressure to specific points on the spine in order to attain maximum relief from pain and discomfort. This technique has been effective for helping many types of spinal injuries associated with car accidents such as whiplash and herniated discs which can be very painful if not treated appropriately.
