Effective Home Remedies for Pain Relief After a Car Accident

Being in a car accident can significantly affect your physical and mental health. Not only that, but you may have injuries that are causing pain and can become chronic if left untreated. Our chiropractors at Metro Denver Accident & Injury Centers in Westminster, Aurora, and Lakewood, CO, can provide you with treatment to reduce your discomfort and help you return to your routine quickly. Between your chiropractic care sessions, you can implement some of the home remedies below:


Low-Impact Exercises

Doing gentle exercises is beneficial in helping your body heal and speeding up the recovery process. One reason exercise can be good for you after an accident is that it releases "feel good" chemicals known as endorphins. Endorphins can naturally relieve stress and pain in your body. While you may have been told to rest, this doesn't mean that staying in bed is the healthiest way to spend your time. Being inactive can have a negative effect on your body and the healing process. As long as you're able, you can try low-impact exercises, such as swimming or walking. 

Stay Hydrated

Our chiropractors would advise to stay hydrated during your recovery. Drinking plenty of water increases blood flow and helps the damaged tissues heal. If you are not drinking enough water, this can delay the recovery process. Turmeric can also reduce inflammation and helps with muscle recovery. Athletes often drink turmeric water to help them recover after an injury. It contains elements that can alleviate the pain that you are experiencing. In addition, taking turmeric tablets or supplements can help your body heal faster.

Get Enough Rest

While you should try to get some exercise each day, it's also important to get plenty of rest. It may seem like a simple remedy, but it's beneficial and necessary for your body to heal. This can make the recovery smoother and regenerate your body. Not getting enough rest can make it more difficult for you to recover from your injuries because they won't have enough of a chance to heal. 

Consider Chiropractic Care

When you visit our chiropractors, we can perform a through examination and provide treatment that will speed up your recovery. Not only that, but we can also discuss advice on additional remedies you can consider at home to eliminate the pain. Whether you're suffering from a sports injury or experienced a car accident, we can help you with non-invasive treatments. We can determine the root cause of your pain and provide you with prompt treatment.
