Common Types of Auto Accident Injuries
Seeking care for lingering auto accident injuries is important for a number of reasons. Chiropractic care is a safe, natural, and effective way to address issues caused by auto accidents without the need for invasive surgery or medications. The specialized attention that a chiropractor can provide can help reduce pain and discomfort, improve range of motion and flexibility, and improve overall health and wellness.
Additionally, we can help to identify any underlying issues that may have been caused by the accident, such as misalignments in the spine or other joints or soft tissue damage, and provide treatments to help address them. Ultimately, seeking care can be an effective and beneficial way to help manage the long-term effects of an auto accident.
Whiplash: Whiplash is a common injury that occurs when the head and neck are suddenly and forcefully thrown backward and forward. It can cause stiffness, pain, and reduced range of motion in the neck. Chiropractic care can help reduce pain and stiffness associated with whiplash and help the patient improve their range of motion.
Soft Tissue Injuries: Soft tissue injuries are caused by the sudden impact of the crash and can result in strains, sprains, and tears in the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. At Elevation Health, we can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with these injuries and help the patient restore mobility and flexibility.
Back Injuries: Back injuries can range from minor muscle strains to more serious conditions such as herniated discs. We offer red light therapy, decompression, shockwave, chiropractic care, and more to help alleviate pain and restore mobility and strength in the injured area.
Headaches: Headaches are a common symptom of a car accident and can range from mild to severe. At Elevation Health, we can help reduce the severity of headaches and improve the patient’s overall quality of life.
