Auto Accident Injury Treatment from a Top Hoover Chiropractor
Car accident injuries are a major cause of pain and disability in the U.S., affecting tens of thousands of people each year. While some injuries are apparent right away, other injuries can take weeks or even months before their symptoms are fully apparent. And injuries involving the nerves can cause painful symptoms for years after an initial accident - sometimes for a lifetime.
The key to avoiding long-term painful symptoms is to be evaluated by a skilled doctor after any type of car accident, including seemingly minor “fender benders.” As a top-ranked chiropractor, Hoover Health & Wellness Center, Inc., offers patients in and around Hoover, Alabama, the most advanced care solutions for auto accident injury treatment to help patients enjoy a speedy recovery and help prevent long-lasting pain and other symptoms.
Auto Accidents Injuries
Auto accidents can cause an array of injuries resulting in both acute and chronic symptoms, including injuries to the neuromuscular system and the nerves and soft tissues around the spine. Most people who have auto accidents have muscle pain, stiffness and spasms that require prompt medical attention to resolve so more serious symptoms and problems can be prevented. A common injury occurring after both minor and major auto accidents is whiplash, this occurs when the head is snapped back and forth rapidly, like the “crack” of a whip. This rapid motion tears soft tissues and nerves, causing inflammation and nerve impingement resulting in headaches, neck and back pain, and sharp, electricity-like “shocks” of pain extending from the neck down the shoulders, arms and upper back. Plus, whiplash causes long-term symptoms that can last for many years.
Other common injuries and symptoms that occur after auto accidents include:
- numbness in the neck, shoulders, arms, and legs
- lower back pain
- hip and knee pain
Auto Accident Treatment
Because auto accidents involve injuries to the neuromuscular system. chiropractic care can be an ideal approach to treating painful symptoms and resolving underlying nerve impingements and joint misalignment. Auto accident injury treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment of your spine, your joints, and your overall symptoms to determine the cause. Treatment often includes spinal adjustments in the neck and back to help realign spine joints and reduce nerve compression.
Adjustments and therapeutic massage are also helpful in improving circulation and releasing toxins for optimal healing. Plus, these techniques combined with special exercises can help restore movement, flexibility, and range of motion for a better quality of life. At Hoover Health & Wellness Center, Inc., your chiropractic treatment will be customized specifically to your needs so you can experience the best results.
