Being involved in an auto accident can be a very traumatic event. Some of the more common auto accident injuries include whiplash, back pain, and neck pain. At Enhanced Living Chiropractic, we treat car accident victims who have suffered injuries of varying degrees. Our staff has put together answers to some of the most frequently asked questions, so you have a better understanding of what to expect when receiving auto accident injury treatment from our chiropractor.
What is Whiplash?
One of the most common car accident injuries is whiplash. It is a neck injury that occurs when your head moves suddenly back-and-forth while being constricted by your seat belt. Usually, whiplash is sustained in low-impact rear-end auto accidents. The pain level ranges from mild to severe and the symptoms include inflammation in the neck, a tingling sensation in your arms, and frequent headaches.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help with My Auto Accident Injuries?
Chiropractic care is the most effective method of treating spinal misalignments triggered by car accidents. Our chiropractor may use both chiropractic adjustments and full-body massage to address your back pain, neck pain, and other discomforts. Healing and pain relief can be achieved by correcting back and spinal misalignments through chiropractic care.
How Does Chiropractic Care Offer Pain Relief?
Often, lower back and neck pain is the direct result of misaligned vertebrae and bulging/herniated discs that are placing excessive pressure on the spinal cord. The pressure placed on the spine's nerve endings is a major potential cause of neck pain and lower back pain. Over time, chiropractic adjustments will reduce your pain, improve your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
What Takes Place During a Chiropractic Treatment Session?
A chiropractic treatment session will begin with a comprehensive examination of your musculoskeletal system. This will help our chiropractor determine the full extent of your injuries. The results of this examination will confirm whether or not you have sustained a deep internal injury that is causing your pain and discomfort. From the information provided, our experienced chiropractor can create a chiropractic treatment tailored to your needs. If left untreated, an auto accident injury could lead to mobility issues later in life.
