At Weisbrod Chiropractic in Chandler, we treat a wide variety of conditions, including auto accident injuries. If you have experienced an accident, we can help you feel better fast.
Symptoms of a Car Accident Injury
Back pain is one of the most common complaints after a car accident. You may also experience neck or shoulder pain due to whiplash. Limited range of motion, muscle soreness, nerve pain, and headaches are also common after an accident. In some cases, injury symptoms begin immediately after a car accident. However, you can also experience symptoms days or even weeks after the accident. The most common injuries after an auto accident include:
• Painful muscles due to strains, sprains, or contusions
• Spinal misalignment
• Bulging or herniated discs
• Bone fractures
How a Chiropractor Can Help You Heal After an Accident
A chiropractor can help you heal after an accident by addressing the root cause of your injury. Chiropractic treatment helps the body heal itself, instead of simply masking pain with medication.
Spinal misalignment is extremely likely after a car accident. This can cause pain, reduce your mobility, and interfere with your nervous system function. A chiropractor can use chiropractic adjustments to correct misalignments. This is done through precise gentle thrusts, which bring the joint back into alignment.
Chiropractic adjustments can relieve pain caused by misalignment, including back and nerve pain. They also reduce inflammation, improve your range of motion, and improve nervous system function. In addition to spinal adjustment, your chiropractor can adjust other joints if needed, including the shoulder, neck, knees, and wrists.
Corrective exercises can be used along with chiropractic adjustments. Your chiropractor will teach you how to do these exercises, which focus on strengthening muscles, improving flexibility, and increasing your range of motion. You can then continue the exercises at home. This can improve treatment outcomes and support chiropractic treatment.
We offer a range of treatment modalities for auto accident injuries as part of holistic chiropractic care. Cold laser therapy can help with pain in the muscles, nerves, back, and joints. It uses a laser to stimulate healing, decrease inflammation, and reduce pain quickly. Radial pressure wave therapy is excellent for muscle pain as well as injuries to the muscles and connective tissue. Acoustic waves are used to stimulate blood flow, accelerate healing, and activate new cell growth.
