What Is an Auto Accident Injury?
An auto accident injury is any injury that results due to a car crash. There are several common auto accident injuries, including muscle strains and sprains, dislocated or broken bones, traumatic internal injuries, muscle tears, back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, and whiplash.
These are just some of the many auto accident injuries that can negatively impact your ability to live life, complete daily activities, and cause enormous amounts of pain.
Do I Need Chiropractic Care?
Although you might be able to recover from an auto accident injury without any treatment, it's never a good idea to ignore your injury. It may help to visit our chiropractor and get chiropractic care immediately following an accident. This can help ensure your injury does not progress and lead to more complicated issues, such as re-injury or muscle fusion.
How Can a Chiropractor Help Me?
Our chiropractor will help conduct a physical exam to determine the extent of your injury and find the root cause of your pain. They can then help provide chiropractic care to help you heal, which can include things such as:
- Massage therapy to soother sore muscles, reduce inflammation and tension, and alleviate pain
- Muscle exercises to strengthen injured muscles, improve mobility and flexibility
- Manual adjustments to realign the spine, which can be taken out of alignment due to an accident
- Spinal decompression to help aggravated herniated or bulging discs after an accident
How Long Does Treatment Last?
Our chiropractic care team will conduct follow-up care to determine if treatment is working based on your pain levels. Treatment can last anywhere from a few weeks or a couple of months for severe injuries.
