What to Know About an Auto Accident Injury and Treatment

Therefore, we offer treatment to help manage your pain and help you heal from a variety of automobile accident injuries.
Whiplash is one of the more common auto accident injuries we see. This particular issue usually stems from a rear-end collision, where your neck is forcefully pushed forward and backward rapidly. This pressure damages the nerves and soft tissue in your neck.
This condition may cause your neck to hurt, or you may lose some of the range of motion in your neck. In some cases, you may experience headaches, mood changes, or sleep disturbances as well. The symptoms usually develop in the first 24 hours after your injury, but you may not notice symptoms until 72 hours later. Usually, the condition heals in the first few months, but some people do experience long-term complications.
Our chiropractor may recommend a chiropractic adjustment, spinal decompression, massage therapy, or exercise therapy to promote healing, decrease pain, and restore the range of motion and function in your neck.
Disc herniation is another issue you may experience after a car accident. This issue arises when you damage a disc as a result of an injury. The contents of the disc may leak through a tear in the outer portion of the disc. The contents may irritate the nearby nerves and soft tissue.
Generally, if you experience a disc herniation, you might have pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in that particular area. These symptoms may extend to your arms or legs, depending on the location of the herniation.
Fortunately, a chiropractor can help your discomfort and other symptoms using a chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, spinal decompression, or exercise therapy. Your practitioner may recommend a combination of therapies to help with the healing process as well as your symptoms.
Your chiropractor may also be able to help with other injuries from an automobile accident, including muscle and other soft tissue damage and nerve-related problems. Often, these injuries use similar approaches than whiplash and disc herniation but targeted toward the specific area you have issues in.
Chiropractic care helps with a variety of auto accident injuries. A chiropractor especially customs an approach to your needs. Moreover, the treatments are natural and not known to cause many side effects.
