How Can a Chiropractor Help Me After My Auto Accident?
We are able to treat neck and back injuries associated with auto accidents. Many times, people who have been injured in a car accident experience intense muscle pain and stiffness. and they cannot function normally. It's hard for them to even move at times. If this is left untreated, it may become a bigger issue down the road. At our clinic, we utilize rehab, massage therapy and other passive therapies to treat sore and painful muscles. The chiropractic manipulation/adjustment then corrects spinal dysfunction/misalignments. These combinations are the best treatment for auto related injuries.
After an auto accident, some people experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away--such as blurred vision, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, reduced range of motion and arm pain. Whiplash can also result in back pain, muscle pain, ligament problems, and disc damage. Then there are people who don't feel any discomfort/pain immediately following the accident. But oftentimes, they will experience pain a few days after the accident or even up to a couple weeks after. Don't feel like you have to wait before you come in to see us.
