MOST COMMON CAR ACCIDENT INJURIES TREATED BY CHIROPRACTORS

If you’ve been in an auto accident, whether mild or severe, your vehicle may not be the only thing that experienced damage. Chiropractic care is often needed to help victims recover from persisting pain and soreness caused by a car crash. Here are a few of the most common injuries chiropractors can help treat:

Whiplash

Whiplash is caused by the violent jerking motion your head undergoes when it is whipped backward and forward as your body comes to an abrupt stop during a rear-end or head-on collision. Whiplash can cause damage to the soft tissue fibers in your neck that, if not treated properly, can lead to permanent impairment. Symptoms of whiplash include: neck pain, headaches, blurred vision, shoulder pain, dizziness, arm pain, pain in the lower back, stiff neck, and reduced range of motion in the neck, shoulders, or upper arms. A chiropractor can help treat symptoms of whiplash by employing methods such as therapeutic ultrasound to increase blood circulation, reduce muscle spasms, and ease neck stiffness.

Back Injuries

Sprained backs, herniated discs, fractured or broken vertebrae, and tissue damage are frequent

injuries caused by the brutal impact of a vehicle collision. Herniated disks induce pressure on the spinal cord nerves and can result in pain, weakness, and numbness. These injuries are commonly treated by chiropractic methods such as flexion-distraction, manual therapy, spinal manipulation, pelvic blocking, and therapeutic exercises. Back injuries often make activities as simple as walking, climbing the stairs, or practicing a sport feel impossible.Visiting a chiropractor can help to alleviate chronic pain and speed up the recovery process so you can regain normal function and get back to doing the things you love.

Muscle Pain and Soreness

After a car accident many victims experience strained or torn muscles. Prior to a collision, our body’s natural instinct is to tighten all muscles as it braces for impact. This tension can cause muscles to be easily pulled or torn. Injured muscles create a build up of inflammation and swelling that irritates the nerves and sends a signal to the brain to immobilize the muscle for its own protection. Proper treatment is needed to ensure normal motion, endurance, and strength are restored to the damaged muscles and prevent future chronic pain and immobility. A chiropractor can evaluate the cause of inflammation and make adjustments to the spine that may reduce the production of neuropeptides and cytokines. Thus, decreasing inflammation. Manual techniques such as therapeutic massage, trigger point therapy, and joint stretching are also utilized by chiropractors to treat sore and injured muscles.
