Why are Auto Accidents Dangerous to Your Spinal Health?
When you are in a car crash, the force of the impact puts immense pressure on your internal body. Even if the impact is not that severe, your spine will most likely be forced out of alignment due to the crash. When this happens a whole host of medical problems are possible including nerve pain, whiplash, and headaches.
How Does a Chiropractor Diagnose and Determine the Severity of an Auto Accident Injury?
If you have been involved in an auto accident, we start with a diagnostic examination, usually involving X-rays. After diagnosis, if we determine your spine has been affected, we perform a chiropractic adjustment to realign your musculoskeletal system. This essentially restarts your system and helps us diagnose any more underlying conditions caused by the accident. We then create a custom treatment plan to continue treating your injuries and pain after the incident.
What are Some of the Most Common Auto Accident Injuries?
We commonly treat patients who have whiplash, spinal injuries, neck pain, and lower back pain caused by an auto accident. Fortunately, with chiropractic care, we can help patients recover from these musculoskeletal injuries. It is important that patients seek treatment as soon as possible after their accident. Most of the time, insurance benefits only cover a small window of time after an accident.
