Auto Accident Injury Treatment with our Woodstock Chiropractor
Auto accidents have the potential to seriously injure patients and leave them with lasting pain. Here's what you should know about an auto accident injury.
The Most Common Injuries That Occur In Auto Accidents?
Auto accidents result in many different kinds of injuries, but some of the most common include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Head injuries
- Broken bones
- Damage to the spinal cord
- Herniated discs
Delayed Injuries and the Risk of Complications after Auto Accidents?
Since many people have a large amount of adrenaline running through them following an auto accident, they may not recognize that they've been injured right away. It's not uncommon for injuries like whiplash or strains to develop over the next 24 to 48 hours. Common injuries such as herniated discs may worsen over time and cause patients significant pain and trouble with their spine. Patients may experience symptoms of delayed injuries as they develop. For spinal injuries, these include:
- Tingling sensations
- Muscle weakness
- Leg pain
- Arm pain
Any of these symptoms suggests that there may be damage to the spinal cord.
How Do Chiropractic Treatments Relieve Pain and Help Patients Heal?
No matter what kind of injury a patient has, chiropractic treatments can help. Good spinal alignment makes a difference in recovery, helping the body have better circulation and nerve signal transmission. Our chiropractor focuses on manipulating the spine into proper alignment, which helps relieve pain and promote healing. By decompressing and aligning the spine, it's possible to release trapped nerves and to reduce the types of misalignment that lead to herniation and lasting pain. Combined with nutritional counseling and daily exercises to promote good posture, it's possible to help patients recover from injuries that otherwise could lead to lasting pain and discomfort.
