Common Auto Accident Injuries
Following your car accident, you may feel sore all over but you might be unsure exactly what injuries are currently affecting you.
There’s a good chance that you’ve sustained a whiplash injury. People involved in rear-end car crashes often suffer whiplash because of the violent back and forth motion that the head and neck make during the accident. All that violent force can injure the soft tissues in your neck.
Symptoms of whiplash include neck and shoulder pain, stiffness, headaches, and muscle weakness in the neck region. If you are currently experiencing these symptoms, schedule an appointment with our chiropractor to get pain relief and help recovering from your injuries.
The injury you’re dealing with could also be a herniated disc. You could have gotten one if the impact from the auto accident was powerful enough to push one of your spinal discs out of position. A ruptured disc can cause significant pain along your back and neck. It may also cause stiffness and numbness you back and, depending on which spinal disc is damaged, that injury may even lead to the onset of sciatica.

Spinal adjustments can work well on both issues. By administering chiropractic adjustments, our chiropractor can reposition your spine to help reduce the pressure the ruptured disc places on the nerves nearby. These adjustments can also help ease the strain on your soft tissues.
Our chiropractor can also use spinal decompression. During spinal decompression, the chiropractor will gently stretch your back. Gentle stretching is essential because it reduces the pressure exerted by the herniated disc and the movements involved in spinal decompression can also help move the slipped disc back into place.
Our chiropractor can also provide corrective exercises to go along with your spinal adjustments. Theses stretches and exercises can help to increase circulation to the affected area and can help build up weakened muscles.
