An automobile accident can happen in mere seconds, but if you suffered an auto accident injury, the repercussions can last a lifetime. Such injuries can cause chronic health issues and damage to the musculoskeletal system, which is why it's vitally important to see a chiropractor after getting into an automobile accident.
If you have been in an automobile accident, we can help. We will be able to help you recover from some of the most common injuries suffered as a result of a car accident. Some of these common injuries include:
Back pain and an injured back
You may not feel the effects of an injury right away. Some injuries, like whiplash, might not be realized until a couple of hours after the accident. In some instances, it can take 24 hours for symptoms to appear. Even if you do not feel any pain, or you do not think you have been injured, it is still important to be seen by a chiropractor. Undetected injuries can cause problems later on down the road.
Generally speaking, chiropractic care involves using natural methods to realign the spine and to encourage recovery. When it comes to treating an auto accident injury, our treatments may include different methods. The type of treatment will largely depend on the type of injury that was sustained and also the severity of the injury. More often than not, one type of treatment used will be spinal manipulation. Other methods we may utilize include Decompression Therapy, Therapeutic Exercise and Nutrition.
We understand that an injury sustained in a car accident can cause pain, discomfort, and at times be debilitating. Such injuries can also cause frustration as they can prevent you from doing your normal, everyday activities and even cause you to miss work.
Receiving the appropriate treatment for your injury is the first step of the recovery process. Our treatments can help you improve your recovery process; as well as reduce the amount of pain you are feeling and increase your mobility. We can also recommend corrective exercises that will help to speed up your recovery and get your body back into shape. If you want to find ways to achieve optimum health, we can do that, too.
