Car accident can happen to anyone, anywhere and anytime of the day. Aside from the mental trauma of the experience, physical trauma may become evident even after a couple of days, weeks or months later which may hamper daily activities of the injured person.
Injuries can happen from car crashes even from slow moving vehicles. Persons involved in such accidents often experience severe headaches, back and neck pains or stiffness, and abdominal pains. Whiplash, a common injury acquired after an accident, can have a very adverse effect if not taken care of properly and immediately. Whiplash, according to Jason Eck, is a “common injury that occurs to a person’s neck following a sudden acceleration-deceleration force that causes unrestrained, rapid forward and backward movement of the head and neck”.
Several chiropractic practices specialize in car accident injuries. As there are several types of injuries that may occur after the accident, chiropractic doctors are constantly researching and developing treatments to better address these types of injuries. A car accident which creates a strong impact hitting the body may cause a serious shock to the spinal section and may dislocate joints – this is where massages and chiropractic expertise help to promote faster recovery.
Chiropractors at Blue Spring urge patients to get a spinal evaluation immediately after a car accident. Our head Chiropractor, Dr. Steve Baek is certified and specializes in treating brain injuries, and very knowledgeable about whiplash care treatments.
After evaluating patients, our Chiropractors may prescribe different methods to treat car accident injuries. Among these are:
- Spinal adjustments to realign your spine, relieve joint stiffness and end nerve impingement.
- Massage treatment to decrease delicate tissue pain and swelling while at the same time quickening the recovery process.
- Appropriate stretches and remedial exercises to help you mend up from the impacts of whiplash, sciatica and other injuries with an optimal range of motion.
Chiropractic adjustments are proven effective in treating injuries caused by car accidents.
