Auto Accident Injury and Chiropractic Visits
At Davidson Chiropractic Clinic, serving Evanston and Rock Springs, WY, we understand the mental and physical aspects of getting involved in a car accident. No matter what kinds of injuries you have suffered, it is important that you understand all of your options.
If you are considering a chiropractic visit after an auto accident, here's what you need to know:
Common Auto Accident Injuries
Herniated discs are common injuries that result in pain, tingling, and numbness. A herniated spinal disc can also affect the surrounding nerves, leading to limb pain. Often, herniated discs are paired with other injuries, which can make them even more difficult to contend with.
Spinal fractures come in several levels of severity. After any broken bones or torn ligaments you’ve experienced in an auto accident have been repaired, our chiropractor can help you recover your range of motion and reduce your pain.
Joint injuries are especially common after car accidents. You may experience severe pain in your elbows, knees, ankles, and other joints. Some joint injuries make walking, eating, or working all the more difficult. Manual manipulation provided by our chiropractor can both reduce your pain and restore wellness to your body.
Whiplash is another big reason why people come to our chiropractic office. Whiplash is the sudden movement of the neck and head forward and then back, like the crack of a whip. Whiplash often results in pain that extends to the neck, shoulders, and upper back.
Soft tissue injuries, including ligament and tendon injuries, can occur during an auto accident, too. Chiropractors help your body heal so that these tissues can return to normal.
Some Injuries Are Hidden
A major mistake that many people make after a car accident is that they do not get treatment for their injuries, particularly because they do not believe that they have injuries. Even if you do not experience any sort of pain right away, always undergo a professional evaluation.
Auto Accident Injury Options
You have plenty of treatment options after an auto accident. You can receive treatment by visiting our chiropractor whether or not you have already undergone surgery and other medical treatments. Our team can offer non-invasive treatment options that focus on your body's natural ability to heal.
