Our Auto Accident Injury Chiropractor
After suffering what might appear to be minor injuries in an auto accident, victims must still be careful. Without proper care and treatment, those minor injuries can worsen and become more difficult to treat. The effects may even stay with you for a lifetime. If your auto accident and injuries occurred in or around Klamath Falls visit our chiropractors at Advanced Chiropractic to get the care and treatment that you need to recover.
Some Common Auto Accident Injuries
Even with relatively light impacts, auto accident victims can still suffer injuries. Those injuries can include any of the following:
- Whiplash causes neck pain to travel across to a shoulder, down an arm, and into a hand.
- Lower back injuries with pain shooting across the lower back, into the buttocks, down a leg, and into a foot.
- Spinal disc displacement with nerve impingement.
- Vertebral misalignment and muscle spasms.
- Damaged tendons and ligaments.
The Benefits of Early Chiropractic Treatment
In the hours after an auto accident, a whiplash injury might only seem like a minor inconvenience. Lower back disc displacement might not seem to be anything more than a minor backache. A few days later, the victim might not be able to turn his or her head or get out of a chair. That is because the totality of these types of injuries takes some time to manifest. Now, the injury has become more difficult to treat, and the recovery time will be longer.
Subluxation After an Auto Accident
When you are in a relatively low-speed auto accident with your seat belt on, your body is still subject to considerable force. The force from the impact can cause a driver or passenger's spine to become misaligned. That misalignment is known as subluxation, and in and of itself, a single subluxation can be quite painful. Muscles, tendons, and ligaments can also suffer microscopic tears that are quite painful.
Chiropractic Care After an Auto Accident
Chiropractic care and treatment do not involve any dangerous prescriptions or over-the-counter medications. If you are examined and treated by one of our chiropractors right after your accident, you are already getting ahead of those injuries that might become worse over time. We will create a treatment plan that involves chiropractic care, massage therapy, corrective exercises, and other modalities if they are needed. The treatment plan is customized to your specific needs to provide pain relief and encourage the recovery process.
