Many people seek out chiropractic care after auto accident injuries. Chiropractic treatments can help relieve pain from injuries related to auto accidents. Below is more information about some injuries from auto accidents.
What Is an Auto Accident Injury?
An auto accident injury can come in many forms. Auto accident injuries include head, neck, and back injuries, whiplash, soft tissue injuries, and pain.
- Whiplash - Whiplash is also referred to as a neck strain or sprain. Whiplash happens when the head is jerked quickly backward then forward. Symptoms of whiplash may not be felt right away and can take up to 24 hours after the accident to be felt.
- Neck and Back Injuries - Neck and back injuries can occur from the impact of the accident. Neck injuries can also happen along with whiplash.
- Soft Tissue Pain and Injuries - Muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues can also be damaged from the impact of an accident.
What Are the Symptoms of Injuries?
There are several types of symptoms for these injuries. Symptoms of auto accidents include pain felt directly, or soon after, the accident occurs, having a hard time moving around, tenderness in the areas of impact, headaches, dizziness, and sleep disturbance. Many of these symptoms can be relieved with chiropractic care.
How Chiropractic Treatments Can Help
Chiropractic treatments can help relieve pain from these injuries. Chiropractic manipulation, massage therapy, and spinal decompression can all help relieve pain from these auto accident injuries.
Chiropractic manipulation can help realign the neck and spine, after being out of place due to an accident. Pressure is taken off of muscles, tendons, and other soft tissue, bringing pain relief to these areas. Musculoskeletal injuries can be healed through chiropractic manipulation techniques.
Massage therapy uses long, circular strokes all over the body to relax the body, bring pain relief, and loosen muscles. Other soft tissue can be healed through massage as well.
Spinal decompression relieves pain by gently stretching the back using a special motorized table. Please call us to discuss if you would be a good candidate for this type of therapy.
