Every year, over 3 million Americans incur injuries from an automobile accident. Many of them often turn to pain medication or surgery to help alleviate their pain and “fix” their injury. But there are natural treatments for injuries you sustain in a car accident. Ways you can treat (and eliminate) your pain without resorting to drugs or permanent surgery. In this post, we discuss two of them: chiropractic care and regenerative medicine.
Chiropractics can treat car accident injuries naturally
Most car accidents involve severe impact that puts stress and strain on your body. This often leads to (among other things): back and neck pain, joint injuries, torn ligaments, fractured bones, disc injuries, and migraines/headaches. Chiropractic adjustments can help treat some of these injuries. A good chiropractor can reset the body back to its ideal positioning, counteracting the effects of stress and strain caused by the car accident. This helps your body deal with pain symptoms better and heal more quickly.
Regenerative medicine jump-starts the healing process
In order to boost your body’s healing process, many holistic doctors also use regenerative medicine treatments to eliminate your pain. Depending on the nature of the injury, the doctor may recommend one of the following:
- Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
- Regenerative Cell Therapy
By using the right treatment for your injury, your body will be able to heal faster and more effectively.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
PRP therapy is a natural, non-invasive treatment that uses your own blood to accelerate the body’s healing process. First, the doctor draws a quick sample of your blood. Then, he uses a centrifuge to separate the platelets in your blood from the other blood cells. After this, he synthesizes a solution that he will then inject into the injured area.
By injecting PRP into the affected area, other cells in your body will be encouraged to regenerate, renew, and repair the damage inflicted by your car accident injury.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
The last natural treatment for car accident injuries your doctor may prescribe is called regenerative cell therapy. At our clinic, we actually use mesenchymal stem cells, which come from umbilical cords. Instead of using your own cells (which are older), we create injections with these young, vital stem cells to help jump-start your body’s natural healing process. By multiplying and specializing, the cells turn into the cells your body needs to heal your injury and help you recover.
Heal your car accident injuries naturally
In conclusion, it is important to seek treatment for a car accident injury – preferably natural. This helps you get to the cause of the injury, rather than focusing on treating your symptoms with medication. You can receive either chiropractic adjustments or regenerative medicine therapy to help your body heal naturally. And before you know it, you’ll be back to living life and doing what you love, pain-free!
