Auto Accident Injury Treatment at Ward Chiropractic Center
Driving is such everyday tasks that we often forget just how dangerous it can be -- and how many kinds of pain an auto accident can cause. Between the debilitating symptoms of whiplash and the agonies of back pain and sciatica, an auto accident can greatly limit your ability to enjoy life. Here at Ward Chiropractic Center, we have the tools, techniques, and expertise to help you recuperate from your injury and take to the road once again.
Pain, Stiffness, Neurological Symptoms and Other Auto Injury Issues
There may be no such thing as a "minor" auto accident where the risks to your body are concerned. Even a 5-mph impact can transfer enough force from your car to your musculoskeletal system to cause serious stresses, strains, and dislocations. Examples include:
- Whiplash - Whiplash is the injury syndrome associated with violent head motion in an impact. Your body remains securely pinned down, but your head is free to whip back and forth. This can hyperextend the structures of the neck until you experience vertebral dislocation, muscle and connective tissue damage, and herniated cervical discs (which may also press against the cervical nerve roots).
- Back pain - Back pain is a common result of an auto accident. As your body is jolted and twisted, the vertebral joints of the middle or lower back may be forced out of position. This can cause serious back pain and immobility, especially if nerve compression is involved. The pain may also radiate to your ribs or other parts of the thorax.
- Neurological symptoms - When an auto accident injury pushes spinal structures onto nerve tissue, you can suffer from tingling, numbness, pain, or muscle control problems in your legs (sciatica) or arms (cervical radiculopathy).
Non-Surgical Treatment From Our Spring Chiropractor
Trust our Spring chiropractor to find any underlying structural damage behind your auto injury symptoms -- or to reveal those problems even if your symptoms have been delayed by shock. Prompt chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression can get your vertebrae and discs back into their proper alignment. Massage therapy can soother sore muscles and help repair tissue damage. Ultrasound, electro-muscle stimulation, and other therapies can put on the path to healing, while therapeutic exercises can help you regain your full strength and range of motion.
