They have the potential to negatively impact your life, especially if you let them go untreated. Here, we can work with your body’s own natural healing abilities to bring you back to perfect health and wellbeing.
What are Some of the Most Common Types of Car Accidents?
Probably the most common car accident injuries are cuts and bruises. Depending on how bad the accident was, a victim may also suffer from broken bones, pulled muscles, and a variety of internal injuries that can be much worse than anything on the outside. The worse injuries require surgery to save the life of the accident victim and keep them at maximum functionality. However, the vast majority of car accident injuries are not this serious. They do, however, cause pain and discomfort, and may become chronic pain and range of motion issues if not treated as soon after the accident as possible. This is where your chiropractor comes in.
Whiplash is a very common car accident injury. Chiropractors see people with whiplash from car accidents quite frequently. The muscles and tendons around the neck become overextended and inflamed with whiplash. Chiropractic treatments can ease this inflammation and allow the tissues to heal, so they become pain-free and range of motion is restored.
Another car accident injury that chiropractors see commonly is a bulging or herniated disk. A car accident can throw the disks in the spine out of alignment, causing pain and issues with the range of motion. When a chiropractor works on a patient with this injury, any out-of-place disks are gradually worked back to where they belong, bringing pain relief and healing.
