Chiropractic Care after Auto Accident Injuries
Auto accidents are common and can happen to anyone at any time. If you are in an auto accident, you are likely to suffer from some injuries after. Even if you don’t feel pain and seem healthy, you could be suffering from some underlying conditions. At Awareness Chiropractic in Colleyville, TX, our chiropractors can treat you after an auto accident. It is important to seek treatment right after an accident to make sure your condition does not worsen or lead to health complications. Our chiropractor can also diagnose and treat underlying conditions that you may not be aware of.
Treatments for Auto Accident Injuries
When you come in after an auto accident, our chiropractor will examine you and take X-rays if necessary. We will look for the root cause of your pain and diagnose your condition. Our chiropractor will then create a personalized treatment plan for you.
Whiplash is a neck injury caused by the sudden forward then backward neck movement, most often caused by a rear-end collision. Whiplash can also occur from personal injuries incurred while playing a sport or being active. Symptoms of whiplash include headaches, neck pain, dizziness, numbness, stiffness, loss of range of motion, and fatigue. To treat whiplash, our chiropractor may recommend a combination of soft tissue therapy, chiropractic adjustments, and stretching to reduce inflammation and pain in the neck.
Back Pain Treatment
Auto accidents can cause back pain and stiffness. We may recommend spinal manipulation for back and neck pain, often caused by a herniated or bulging disc. Spinal manipulation may involve the diversified technique, the Thompson technique, the ArthroStim technique, and the Percussor technique. All of these methods work to realign the spine, which alleviates pressure or tension in the neck and back. Making sure the spine and discs are in place is important for healing.
Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft tissue therapy is effective in treating muscles and ligaments injured in an automobile accident. Depending on the specific injury, this may involve a combination of therapeutic massage, active release therapy, and myofascial release therapy. These help restore motion and improve blood flow.
Exercises and Stretching
Stretching and strengthening the muscles is an important part of helping your body heal. Our chiropractor will guide you on how to do these exercises safely and in the comfort of your own home.
