Chiropractic Care Vs Reflexology

After a car accident, you’ll try just about anything to get the pain to stop. Two options you may be considering could be chiropractic care and reflexology. What are they? What’s the difference between the two? Which one is better after an accident?

Let’s discuss chiropractic care vs reflexology after a car accident to help you decide which one may be better for you.

What Is Reflexology?

Reflexology vs Chiropractic Care - Car Accident

Reflexology is a type of massage based on traditional Chinese medicine that involves using varying amounts of pressure on areas of the ears, hands, or (most commonly) feet. It’s based on a theory that these areas are connected to certain body systems and organs. Reflexologists believe applying pressure to these areas causes a range of health benefits.

According to ancient Chinese beliefs, a life force (called qi or chi) flows through everybody, and stress can block your chi from flowing and cause an imbalance that leads to an illness. Reflexology is one way to get your chi flowing again.

While it may be relaxing, there’s little evidence that reflexology can significantly improve pain.

What Is Spinal Manipulation?

DISC and spine accident injuries

Also referred to as “cracking your back,” spinal manipulation is a type of chiropractic care that involves moving the joints in your spine back into alignment. Spinal manipulation is often combined with massage, exercise, physical therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, or other therapies to help you maintain good spinal alignment.

Is Reflexology or Chiropractic Care Better After a Car Accident?

So, which is better after an auto accident: reflexology or chiropractic care?

Car accidents, even at low speeds, can jostle the bones in your spine out of place. Spinal manipulation is the only way to move the bones back into alignment and eliminate the pain that results from being misaligned. Additionally, chiropractic care involves a holistic approach to managing your injuries and pain.

On the other hand, there is little evidence to show that reflexology is effective in treating pain. Even if it does reduce your pain, it won’t solve the underlying cause of it – your spine being out of alignment.

If you still want to try reflexology, it can be used alongside chiropractic care. However, if you only choose one treatment, chiropractic care is the better option after a car accident.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care


For pain that affects your joints, muscles, bones, cartilage, and connective tissue, spinal manipulation and other forms of chiropractic care can provide many benefits, including:

  • Improved neck or back pain
  • Helps relieve some types of headaches
  • Non-invasive
  • Holistic
  • Reduced reliance on opioid pain relievers
  • Often cheaper than conventional treatment
  • Better levels of satisfaction with treatment
  • Addresses the root cause of pain
