Auto Accident Injury Treatment
Auto accident injuries can range from mild to severe, and can even become debilitating. Luckily, chiropractic care provides natural treatment methods for these injuries. At Phillips Chiropractic in Woodland, CA, our experts will diagnose and treat your injury. We also serve residents of Madison, Esparto, and Davis, CA.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
The body naturally suffers inflammation when muscles, ligaments, and tendons are torn suddenly and violently in directions they aren't used to, or in any direction with sudden significant force. You might feel normal immediately after a car accident, but in most cases, you aren't.
There are a variety of injuries you might suffer from after a car accident. Here are some you might experience:
- Strained or sprained body parts
- Spinal injuries
- Injuries that cause balance issues
- Back, shoulder, or knee pain
- Stiff muscles
- Headaches and migraines
Whiplash occurs when the neck is forcefully thrust backward and forward. It causes neck pain, headaches, and migraines. It can even lead to blurry vision and the inability to concentrate.
Many people who experience a whiplash injury do not notice symptoms right away. It can take days or weeks after the accident for whiplash symptoms to appear. This is why it’s important to visit our chiropractor right after an accident. Your spinal alignment can be off, and inflammation may be severe, causing stiffness and debilitating pain.
When to Seek Treatment
Too often, people don't seek chiropractic care after an auto accident because they don't understand how hurt they are. You may develop chronic pain from an underlying condition that you don’t know about. If you are in an accident, even if you don’t feel hurt, visit our chiropractor as soon as possible. Our chiropractor will examine you for underlying conditions and health issues so we can treat them before they worsen.
Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries
Our chiropractor provides non-invasive, drug-free care for auto accident injuries that involve muscle strains, disc damage, pinched nerves, spinal alignment issues, and more.
Our chiropractor uses chiropractic adjustments to alleviate whiplash and back pain. We may also use spinal decompression. This ensures that the spine is aligned and isn’t causing pressure or tension in the back. Our chiropractor may also use cold laser therapy, massage therapy, physical therapy, and more.
