If you’ve experienced a Easley motor vehicle accident (MVA), it can leave you with serious spine-related pain in the neck or back. Luckily, the Easley chiropractic care with Cox® Technic at Young Chiropractic can help alleviate your pain. Read in for more info on how this form of treatment can help back and/or neck pain sufferers after a car accident.
IMPAIRMENT AND RETURNING TO WORK ISSUES AFTER AUTO ACCIDENTS
A recent analysis of published papers on auto accident impairment ratings described a wide range of ratings after a MVA - 2% - 23% for car occupants and 2.8% [-|to]9] 46% for cyclists – with cervical spine and neck injuries being the biggest risks for permanent injury status. This led the authors to call for a global way of evaluating medical impairment after accidents to reduce psychological and financial burdens for both the injured person and his/her community. (1) In developing guidelines to handle traffic injuries, an expert panel pointed out that injured persons wished to partner with the healthcare team, wanted a clearer understanding of the healthcare and insurance system sooner after their injury, needed support for their emotional distress, and valued straightforward explanations with easy-to-understand words. (2) For those who worried about returning to work, researchers found that those who had higher expectations of returning to work were more likely to do that.

GENTLE CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT FOR MVA PAIN RELIEF
With our use of gentle chiropractic care including Cox® Technic as part of the treatment plan for post-auto accident spine injury, our Easley patients can be optimistic. Cox Technic is a well-researched form of chiropractic care that works to reduce inflammation and alleviate 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 using 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 certain points on the spine in order to achieve the most relief from pain and discomfort. This technique has been effective for treating many types of spinal injuries related to MVAs such as whiplash and herniated discs which can be very painful if not treated properly.
