Auto Accident Injuries
What Injuries Can Result From Auto Accidents?
Automobile accidents are extremely traumatic events often resulting in both physical and emotional injuries that can be very difficult to process. One of the most common injuries caused by an auto accident is whiplash, a sudden, forceful movement that causes the head to slam backward, forward or to the side. Whiplash results in a destabilization of the spine, which causes:
- Blurred vision
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Reduced range of motion in the neck
- Arm pain
- Stiffness in the neck
- Lower back pain
How Does Chiropractic Care Aid Auto Injuries?
The pain and stiffness resulting from a car accident can be so severe that the patient is unable to function normally. Luckily, chiropractors are trained to treat these severe neck, back and whiplash injuries, as well as aid soft tissue pain and injury. With the proper adjustments, pressure on the nerves and muscles is relieved and alignment is brought back to the spine. Additional auto injury treatment can help restore the patient’s full range of motion. These include:
- Muscle relaxation and/or stimulation
- Various exercises
- Ergonomic and lifestyle changes
- Corrective exercises
Do I Need Auto Injury Treatment?
Most people will visit the hospital after a serious car accident, but many people don’t understand that even a minor collision can result in soft tissue injuries that may lead to chronic arthritis. Pain following your accident is a good indicator that an injury has occurred. But even if you are experiencing no pain, it may still be a good idea to see a chiropractor as some pain and discomfort won’t surface until weeks or months after the accident. A good rule of thumb is to see a chiropractor within two weeks of any car accident for auto injury treatment.
