Chiropractic Treatment for 3 Common Car Accident Injuries
You can be a great driver, but sometimes car accidents are inevitable. Drivers can become distracted by activity in the car. Also, all drivers are not always cautious when they should be. Texting while driving, speeding, intoxication and simply not paying attention to the road can cause car accidents. Unfortunately, cars get damaged and so does the body.
Whiplash almost always occurs after a car accident. It mostly occurs during rear-end collisions. The neck gets strained as a result of the car accident. All of the symptoms of whiplash do not appear right away. This causes most people to ignore their symptom, such as headaches, feeling tired, and memory loss, dizziness, neck pain and stiffness. Diagnosis of whiplash is needed so that it can be treated. Usually, damage has occurred to the muscles in the body and this is what is causing the whiplash symptoms. Whiplash can be treated with chiropractic care.
Your body has limited movement when a back injury happens. Even car accidents that are not very severe can cause a back injury. There are many types of back injuries that can occur such as thoracic spine injuries, herniated discs, spinal cord injuries, sprains, strains and more. All of these injuries can leave permanent damage to the body and lead to long-term disability when chiropractic car is not given. After a car accident, back injuries need to be diagnosed and properly treated. To avoid having a long-term disability, your back needs to be evaluated by your chiropractor as soon as possible. They are experts in spinal injury, whether it's caused by a car accident or by something else.
The knee can get torn during a car accident. Dislocation of the knee can also happen during the impact of the car accident. These injuries almost always happen when the knee hits the dashboard during the collision. Many symptoms can occur such as redness and swelling around the knee. Severe pain is usually felt when you try to bend or move your knee. Your local chiropractor offers non-surgical procedures to aid your body in healing on its own. For knee injuries, or any other types of injuries that result from a car accident, always consult your chiropractor. It doesn't take much time out of your day and we offer a free consultation.
