Get relief from auto accident injuries
Whiplash, back injuries, and headaches are just some of the common injuries caused by auto accidents that can result in moderate to severe pain. Immediately following a car accident, you may not feel pain or show visible signs of injury due to the adrenaline rush your body experiences at times of stress and trauma. But when the pain from your injuries sets in, chiropractic care can help reduce and eliminate pain, and restore normal functioning to your muscles, ligaments, and nervous system so your body can heal naturally.
The most common injuries from auto accidents include headaches or migraines, soft-tissue injuries, herniated discs, and neck, back and shoulder pain. Body stiffness, chest pain, and anxiety are other symptoms that indicate you may be suffering from auto accident injuries. Sometimes it can take days or weeks before you even start feeling the aftermath from a car accident.
Chiropractic treatment can help restore mobility to the joints of the spine by increasing blood flow to injured areas, and can stretch joints in your neck and back to break up scar tissue that could otherwise cause pain and discomfort. Chiropractors can even detect and treat some underlying health problems to prevent them from becoming worse, such as injuries that can lead to long-term chronic pain. Spinal cord, back, neck, and soft-tissue injuries can all be safely and effectively treated by your chiropractor.
Did you know?
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries caused by auto accidents and may not produce symptoms for up to 48 hours after an accident. Symptoms of whiplash can last six months or longer when left untreated or when not caught on time. But seeing a chiropractor immediately following your auto accident can help you avoid long-term pain and discomfort caused by whiplash. Common symptoms of whiplash include dizziness, headaches, blurred vision, and neck soreness.
Frequently asked questions about auto accident injuries
What happens when I go in for my chiropractor appointment following an auto accident?
Your chiropractor will talk to you about your pain and symptoms and perform an examination. During your exam, your doctor may ask you to walk around or perform certain tasks to determine your flexibility and mobility. In some instances, patients are referred to specialists for x-rays, an MRI, or additional testing.
How long does chiropractic treatment take before my pain goes away?
Many people experience pain relief following one or two chiropractic treatment sessions, but the length of treatment depends on the severity of your injuries. Generally, most people require between four and six weeks of chiropractic treatment to benefit from long-lasting pain relief and full mobility.
How does chiropractic care relieve pain caused by auto accident injuries?
Chiropractors can relieve back and neck pain by realigning your spine and restoring vertebrae to their proper positions. This relieves pressure being placed on your spinal discs and nerves and promotes the healing of soft tissues.
Are chiropractic adjustments painful?
Chiropractic adjustments do not cause or worsen pain. However, you may experience minor muscle soreness as your body heals and adapts to proper alignment.
