Car Accident Injury Treatment
Is there anything more stressful than getting into a car accident? No one expects to get into one, but almost everyone does at some point in their life. Car accidents can be relatively minor, a mere fender bender, or, more severe, a car crash. In either circumstance, injury is likely to occur, and this only adds more stress to the situation as pain and discomfort can affect other areas of your life. The good news is you don’t have to let your car accident injury dominate your life. chiropractic adjustments can relieve or even reverse the impact of even serious accidents.
Common Car Accident Injuries We Treat
Most car accident injuries involve the neck, shoulders or back and symptoms include pain, stiffness, and even numbness or tingling. One common injury resulting from a car accident is Whiplash. Whiplash is most associated with rear-end collisions and is what happens when your cervical spine is abruptly “whipped” backward and then forward, knocking it out of alignment. Whiplash can cause stiffness and pain in your neck and shoulder muscles for days or even weeks, depending on the severity.
Another common car accident injury is strained muscles in the neck and shoulders, even in the arms or back. This is caused when the driver or passenger sees the impact coming and tense up in fear or anticipation. Once the impact strikes, the muscles fight to hold their position but are forced to give way. This struggle results in the muscles being sore, stiff and in pain for some time.
The different kinds of injuries you can sustain in a car accident are too numerous to count, but most of them involve some combination of your bones, muscles and joints coming out of alignment.
How We Can Treat your Car Accident Injury
Because there are no two car accidents exactly alike, we take each car accident injury patient individually and evaluate your specific needs before deciding on a treatment. Different symptoms require different solutions, but the core principle guiding us in your treatment will be in addressing the cause of your pain or discomfort. This means that, instead of giving you pain medication to temporarily mask the pain, we work to adjust the underlying structural problems that are causing the pain and help restore your body back to its pre-car accident state.
We do this with a variety of time-tested and scientifically backed procedures and methods, including but not limited to:
- Spinal Manipulation
- Muscle Stimulation/Relaxation Therapy
- Condition-specific Exercises and Stretches
- Advice on Ergonomic Best Practices
