The signs of a car accident injury, such as whiplash, tend to develop within the first 24 hours after the accident. But sometimes, they can appear far later. It’s important that your injuries are attended to quickly after the accident to make sure no more trauma to your tissue is sustained.
During your first appointment, you will be assessed by our doctor. The doctor will then determine the type of therapy you will need for your injury. With proper treatment, most people are able to recover from whiplash symptoms in a few months. If you do not seek treatment, symptoms may last much longer. When with the chiropractor, you will be asked about the accident and your symptoms, then the doctor will perform a head and neck examination in order to assess your range of motion. X-rays may be ordered to rule out other conditions that could be causing your symptoms.
Our doctors are here to help you after sustained trauma due to an auto accident. We can provide you with a treatment plan that does not include surgery or medications. We will get to the source of the problems and, with the use of regenerative medicine, we can assist in your recovery to make sure you heal faster with long-lasting relief.
All-Natural Pain Relief for Car Accident Injury
The types of injuries that we see most often in our office are whiplash and herniated discs. Whiplash happens when the soft tissues around the spine are damaged, typically due to the spine being tossed forward at the time of impact. The most common symptoms of whiplash are neck pain and stiffness. These symptoms are typically not present until a day or two after the accident. The types of treatment we perform for whiplash include exercises that will assist with regaining range of motion. We also perform spinal manipulation, which helps place your spinal bones back into the correct alignment. Chiropractic massage is another treatment that could be used to treat whiplash as well as treat tension, headaches, and muscle spasms.
Other common injuries resulting from auto accidents are herniated and slipped discs, which force the discs between the vertebrae out of place. Injuries such as these can be very painful and can cause sharp pain along the center of your spinal column.
In addition to treating auto injuries, we also help people who may have been hurt on the job. We can help you if you are injured from a work-related accident or another type of accident. Some of the types of symptoms we treat are neck, back and shoulder pain, whiplash, issues with range of motion, tension headaches, and sciatica. Our workplace injury chiropractor will assess how these personal injury concerns are affecting you.
