The most common injury received in a car accident is whiplash. While whiplash is generally not considered a severe injury, it can be painful. Thankfully, our team can effectively treat neck pain caused by whiplash.
Car accidents, severe car accidents, are known for causing back injuries. Our chiropractors have successfully treated painful back injuries caused by car accidents. These injuries are often treated with a spinal adjustment, as a misaligned spine is often the root cause of the injury.
Most neck pain after a car accident is attributed to whiplash, which refers to muscle and tendon strains. However, some painful neck conditions suffered in a car accident are unrelated to whiplash. Instead, neck pain after a car crash can cause spinal misalignment.
Chiropractic Treatments We Offer
These injuries are significant for what methods of treatment we use. It also depends on the severity of the damage and how quickly you come in to be treated. We will help you with whatever you need. Most of our techniques are listed below.
All of our chiropractors are experts in spinal adjustments. These adjustments are effective for back, neck, and any type of spinal injury. For example, many back and neck injuries from car accidents are linked to a misaligned spine. Additionally, whiplash and the ligament injuries that often occurs from it can be aided through spinal adjustments.
Shockwave therapy is a great treatment method for patients suffering from soft tissue, joint, bone, or tendon injuries (many of which happen in a car accident). Using high-energy sound waves, shockwave reduces pain and inflammation, accelerating healing, increases blood flow and circulation, improves range of motion, and induces stem cell recruitment.
It is relatively common for people to suffer a herniated disc in a car accident. Herniated discs often cause severe back pain and can be challenging to treat. However, spinal decompression (which involves gently stretching the spine) is a safe and effective treatment for herniated discs.
