How to Deal with a Shoulder Injury from Auto Accident
An auto accident can be especially violent and jarring on your body. Because of the position in which you are seated with a shoulder harness seat belt, a shoulder injury is very possible during a car accident. And if you are driving, your shoulders often are exposed to the steering wheel and a potential side impact from another vehicle. Here at Anderson Chiropractic Clinic in Sacramento, CA, we have a variety of non-invasive treatments that can help you recover from an injured shoulder.
Many Ways You Can Suffer a Shoulder Injury in Accidents
If you are in a front-end collision, the sudden deployment of airbags may injure one or both shoulders. The shoulder strap from the seatbelt might also yank one shoulder more than the other and cause significant soft tissue damage. Whiplash might make one or both shoulders hurt, and a dislocation could cause a lot of pain and swelling.
Some people also suffer broken bones in their shoulder area from an auto accident. The scapula or a collarbone might become fractured. A broken arm could make it feel like your shoulder is broken. And a combination of soft tissue injuries and broken bones could be especially painful following an auto accident.
How Our Skilled Chiropractor Could Help
After you have obtained care from your doctor, our chiropractor could initiate a variety of treatments that enhance your body’s natural healing while reducing pain. Massage therapy is a great example of an often-beneficial therapy for a shoulder injury. We can refer you to a qualified professional.
Electrical muscle stimulation therapy can be provided to relieve tight and sore muscles, which can help to loosen up your shoulder and enable you to move more freely. Specific chiropractic adjustments can help restore joint function to stimulate healing to your injured shoulder.
Benefit from Effective and Natural Pain Relief
