Common Car Accident Injuries
Car accidents are scary. Car accident victims are left with injuries that need treatment for proper healing. If you've been injured in a car accident, a car accident chiropractor can help you recover. Below are some common injuries associated with car accidents and ways chiropractic care can relieve your injuries.
Lower Body Injury
Car accidents often result in lower body injury. Most injuries are in the the legs and knees and are caused by impact. The legs move forward during the accident, hitting the dash at a high impact resulting in fractures, bruising and soreness. In addition, knee musculature can tear, which is painful and will need a lot time to recover.
Neck and Back Injury
Neck and back injuries are even more commonly associated with car accidents. Injuries include whiplash, herniated discs, bruising, strains and soreness. Whiplash is common during a car accident because of the impact. Whiplash happens when the neck 'whips' forward, then snaps back suddenly at the time of impact. Whiplash can damage ligaments, vertebrae and musculature surrounding the neck and back. Most commonly, whiplash causes strain or sprain injuries in the back or neck which will require treatment.
Chiropractic Care and Car Accident Injuries
For these types of injuries, chiropractic care plays a major role. Chiropractic care offers a variety of treatment methods for pain relief and healing of muscle strains, sprains, neck injuries and back injuries. Treatment methods include laser therapy, traction, electrical stimulation, adjustments, hydrotherapy massage and ultrasound which help you to heal fast from your car accident injury.
