Whiplash – It is one of the most common injuries sustained in an automobile accident. It may occur when your car receives the impact of an accident and causes your neck and back to be forcibly “whipped” back and forth or side-to-side past its normal range of motion. A whiplash may affect the muscles and tissues in your neck and back. You may experience a stiff neck or have pain in your neck and back immediately, or it could take a few days, weeks, or even months for symptoms to appear in your body. It is crucial to treat a whiplash as soon as possible, even if you have not experienced any pain.
Headaches and Migraines – They might be caused from a whiplash, head injury, or another type of automobile accident. Headaches might appear when your neck is damaged because the stress or strain to your neck muscles cause pain to radiate into your head. If you are experiencing headaches after an automobile accident, you should make arrangements to get treated as soon as possible so your headache pain does not become permanent.
Herniated Disc – This is another injury that may be sustained in an automobile accident. It occurs when a spinal disc bulges and puts pressure on the nerves in your back. A sudden jolt from an automobile accident may cause a disc herniation or possibly sciatica.
Chiropractic Care – It is an effective method of treatment for automobile accident injuries. Our chiropractors use manual adjustments and corrective exercises to treat automobile accident injuries. General chiropractic care and a series of manual adjustments aid with pain management for whiplash, herniated discs, neck pain, low back pain, shoulder pain and headaches. By adjusting the spine and re-aligning the neck and back, a chiropractor can relieve the pressure from the neck, back and head. Proper alignment can help boost the function of the immune and digestive systems by allowing the nerves to function properly.
Chiropractic care, combined with other treatment methods, can assist in the healing process and help you get your body back to normal.
