Common Auto Accident Injuries We See and Treat
When you get into an auto accident, your spine is one of the most vulnerable parts of your body and there is a lot that can go wrong in terms of spinal injury. One of the most common injuries we see and treat is that of whiplash, which occurs when the soft tissue around the spine becomes damaged at the point of impact in an auto accident. This can lead to pain, soreness, and stiffness that is generally localized to the upper back and neck.
Another common injury we see following an auto accident is that of slipped and/or herniated discs. This occurs when the hard exterior shell of the spinal column becomes damaged, allowing the discs between the vertebrae to swell and move around. This injury usually leads to sharp, localized pain in the mid or lower back.
How Our Chiropractor Can Help With Your Injuries
Fortunately, if you're suffering from an auto accident injury such as whiplash or a herniated disc, there are chiropractic treatment options that can help. The great thing about trusting chiropractic treatment to help you find relief is that these treatment methods are drug-free and non-invasive, so you don't have to worry about the risks and potential side effects that can often come along with other forms of treatment.
For example, if you're suffering from whiplash symptoms, we may recommend a spinal adjustment treatment here in our office, which involves our skilled chiropractor manually manipulating the spine to correct imbalances and problems with alignment. This, in turn, can help you find relief from pain and can also promote and encourage the body's own natural healing processes.
If you're experiencing pain related to a herniated or slipped disc, spinal adjustment can also be useful as a means of pain relief. This, when combined with other techniques, such as massage therapy and even spinal decompression, can be extremely effective in targeting your pain and symptoms at their source. Ultimately, our goal is to help you find relief from your symptoms and improve your overall health and wellness.
