Common Auto Injuries
Auto accidents can cause injury to any part of the body. While some individuals notice pain or other symptoms right away, others only notice changes in health or comfort several days after the accident. Because auto accident injuries can have long-term effects on your comfort, health, and quality of life, seeking chiropractic treatment as soon as you notice symptoms of any injury is the best way to minimize the consequences of your injuries.
- Whiplash is the most common injury associated with auto accidents. This type of injury can occur even in low-speed collisions, particularly rear-ending, and may cause stiffness and pain in the neck, shoulders, arms, or upper and lower back.
- Back injuries such as herniated discs, fractured vertebrae, sprains, and strains are another common consequence of car crashes. Damage to the spine can cause chronic back pain and disability; working with your chiropractor is the best way to prevent lasting damage and achieve effective back pain relief.
- Joint injuries commonly occur when the body is jostled or jolted in an accident. Chiropractic treatment can restore joint mobility and relieve pain, as well as prevent chronic conditions such as accident-related arthritis from developing over time.
