Types of Auto Accident Injuries Treated
Injuries sustained from a car collision are not always visible to the naked eye. Internal injuries may be present, but may cause no pain or other symptoms. However, untreated injuries can lead to severe health complications. These are common auto accident injuries that we treat:
- Neck and back injuries
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Vertebrae fracture
- Muscle strains, sprains, or tears
- Spinal misalignment
Typical Symptoms after a Car Collision
The following symptoms may develop right away or days or weeks later. For example, patients who suffered a whiplash may not notice symptoms until 24 hours or more after the initial trauma.
- Neck pain or stiffness
- Upper or lower back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Headaches or dizziness
- Swelling and inflammation
- Sciatica (nerve pain)
- Numbness or tingling in the arms or legs
- Muscle pain or weakness
Diagnosing Your Pain and Injuries
Our chiropractor will examine you thoroughly for head, neck, and back injuries. Non-obvious injuries to the spinal bones, joints, discs, and connective tissue may show up on an X-ray, CT scan, or MRI.
Auto Accident Injury Care by Our Westchester Chiropractor
Your pain management plan could include these safe non-surgical treatments that may help prevent invasive surgery:
Chiropractic adjustment: Adjusting the spine with gentle manipulation force helps to restore the spinal joints and discs to their natural position. Spinal adjustment relieves pressure on the nerves and eases the pain caused by pinched or compressed nerves. Blood and nutrient flow to the spine are also restored.
Massage therapy: Soft tissue injuries such as muscle sprain, strains, and soreness can be effectively relieved with our soothing massage therapy. Massages activate the body's natural pain relievers and support healing by reducing inflammation and improving blood circulation.
Corrective exercises: The aim of corrective exercises is to strengthen your back and core muscles so they can keep the spine stable. Your pain will gradually fade away as your muscles become stronger.
