Auto accidents can cause significant injuries to your neck and back even at low speeds. Here at Joga Chiropractic Center, we can treat auto accident injuries of the back and neck without medications or invasive procedures.
Auto Accident Injuries We Treat
Auto accident injuries of the back and neck can occur with or without external, visible injuries. In fact, many of the car accident injury cases we see on a daily basis are without external cuts and scrapes. When this happens, the individual may not know he or she has been injured until they start experiencing pain, which can be several days after the accident.
Back and neck pain can be caused by strains and sprains, misaligned vertebrae, herniated discs and whiplash. If you have recently been involved in a car accident, you should get examined by our West Los Angeles or Westchester chiropractor for back and neck injuries. This is important even if you are not currently experiencing any symptoms.
When you back is severely jarred, it can cause your discs to slip out of place. This is known as a bulging or herniated disc. The disc material can put pressure on nerves and soft tissues, causing lower back pain.
Whiplash can take 24 to 48 hours before the first symptoms appear. This injury causes severe headaches, neck pain and stiffness and upper back pain. Severe cases can cause light sensitivity, blurry vision and numbness and tingling in the arms.
Chiropractic Care for Car Accident Injuries
Our chiropractor can diagnose and treat your musculoskeletal car accident injuries. Car accidents can misalign your vertebrae, causing back and neck pain as well as headaches.
Chiropractic adjustments form the core of our treatment programs. They are designed to push your misaligned vertebrae back into their proper positions. When the vertebrae are misaligned, they can cause inflammation of the soft tissues, pain and nerve signal interruption.
Core training seeks to strengthen your back and core muscles so that they are able to adequately support your spine. Chiropractic adjustments help realign your vertebrae, but it is your back and core muscles that keep your spine stable. As your core muscles increase in strength, you will gradually notice a reduction in pain.
Strains, sprains and muscles soreness respond well to massage therapy. Receiving massages along with your other chiropractic treatments can decrease your healing time by reducing general muscle pain, improving circulation and helping your muscles release lactic acid.
By utilizing all these techniques, we can heal your auto accident injuries without medication. In many instances, we can help you avoid costly surgeries and invasive procedures with long recovery times.
