Auto Accident Injuries: Causes and Consequences
You might marvel at your good luck if you feel uninjured after an auto accident - only to discover later that your luck wasn't so good after all. Auto accidents are shocking events, and that shock can flood your body with adrenalin, damping or delaying symptoms of an injury. This might mean that you're aggravating that injury in your daily activities without even realizing it. Untreated injuries can also heal incorrectly, binding soft tissues in scar tissue so they can't move properly without pain.
Auto accident injuries can take many forms, but many of them involve the spinal column, with its delicate arrangement of joints, vertebrae, discs, and supporting soft tissues. Examples include:
- Thoracic (upper-back and mid-back) injuries caused by the body twisting beneath a safety harness
- Low back pain caused by forces to the lumbar vertebrae and discs
- Sciatica, leg symptoms that occur when a lumbar structure compresses the sciatic nerve roots
- Whiplash, in which the head is thrown back and forth with enough force to cause damage to the muscles , ligaments, and joints of the neck.
The Natural Choice for Auto Accident Injury Treatment
Don't let fears of surgery or other extreme measures keep you from getting an evaluation and treatment. Pioneer Sports & Pain Center can perform an examination to determine where your symptoms are coming from, or point out an injury that isn't even causing symptoms yet. Our chiropractor can then create an individualized auto accident injury treatment plan based on safe, non-invasive techniques.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments to improve restricted joints, we can also provide ultrasound, heat/ice therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, dry needling, massage therapy, and rehabilitative exercises. Our office also dispenses durable medical equipment including braces and at home pain management products such as TENF unit.
