Auto Accident Injury Treatment
Car accidents can cause all kinds of injuries. Some injuries aren’t that obvious at the time of the accident, but several days or weeks later, however, you may start to feel painful symptoms. To be on the safe side, it’s good to see a chiropractor after a car accident to see if you suffered a musculoskeletal injury. An evaluation from our chiropractor, Dr. Novicky, at Core Chiropractic Center can confirm if you have a neck, shoulder, back, or soft tissue injury. The sooner you get a diagnosis, the sooner you can start treatment.
Typical Auto Accident Injuries
In addition to obvious injuries like broken bones, lacerations, etc., auto accidents can cause musculoskeletal injuries such as whiplash, a dislocated shoulder, spinal misalignments, herniated discs, muscle sprains, ligament tears, muscle stiffness, and soft tissue injuries. These injuries don’t always show symptoms right away. You may feel fine at the time of your accident, only to start experiencing pain and stiffness a week or two later due to whiplash, muscle sprain, subluxation, or other musculoskeletal injury.
Auto accident injuries can interfere with your daily living by causing head, neck, or shoulder pain, stiffness, dizziness, inflammation, or loss of flexibility, range of motion, and mobility. Left untreated, your injuries could worsen, leading to more serious health issues.
After a thorough evaluation of your condition, your chiropractor can confirm if you have a musculoskeletal injury and if chiropractic care is suitable to your needs. If so, we’ll outline a plan for treatment.
Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries
Unlike many forms of traditional medical care, chiropractic treatments are all-natural, non-invasive, and drug-free. Rather than prescribing medication to alleviate pain and discomfort, your chiropractor makes use of chiropractic techniques and natural therapies to reduce pain and help your body heal. At Core Chiropractic Center in Warren, we focus on relieving painful symptoms and the underlying cause of these symptoms to help you recover from your injuries.
