Auto Accident Chiropractors in Waterford, MI
Auto accidents are not only frightening; they can have long-lasting and debilitating effects on the body. They’re one of the most common reasons people seek chiropractic care. The good news is, there are effective treatment options available for injuries suffered in auto accidents.
What are Auto Accident Injuries?
Some of the most common accidents suffered in auto accidents happen to the head, neck, and back. Unfortunately, they’re also among the most serious. During a high-speed collision, drivers and passengers can hit their heads, resulting in brain injuries such as concussions and neck injuries such as whiplash.
Back injuries such as herniated discs can occur in auto accidents and can result in permanent nerve damage if not treated immediately.
Injuries to the extremities such as the hands and feet are common, and soft tissue injuries, including injuries to the abdomen caused by the force of the body against the seatbelt, can also occur.
What Causes Auto Accident Injuries?
Injuries from auto accidents are caused by the force that’s generated from the car traveling at high speed and suddenly coming to a crashing halt. The sudden movement of the head or the neck, from being rear-ended, for example, can cause injury to ligaments and muscles in the neck.
And blunt-force trauma from the crash can cause broken bones, damage to organs, lacerations, and internal bleeding.
Treatment of Auto Accident Injuries
Auto accident chiropractors can effectively treat the pain caused by auto accident injuries, which is often felt as shoulder pain, headaches, dizziness, and a reduced range of motion. Neck injuries such as whiplash and back injuries can be treated by gentle spinal manipulation and adjustments, as well as stretching and strengthening exercises.
Chiropractic care reduces the inflammation, relieves pain, reduces scar tissue and improves range of motion.
