Car crashes tend to cause all kinds of injuries, including broken bones, concussions, and soft tissue injuries. Some injuries are less obvious than others, yet they can be just as painful. These FAQs from Tatsuno Chiropractic, Inc., in Bakersfield, CA explain more about auto injuries and how chiropractic care can help with your treatment.
What kind of injuries do auto accidents cause?
Whiplash is a very common auto accident injury. It can occur even in minor rear end collisions. Whiplash is a neck injury that can cause muscle strains, neck pain, loss of range of motion, headaches, and loss of mobility. In addition to whiplash, you may suffer back injuries, subluxations, herniated discs, misaligned bones and joints, and soft tissue injuries as a result of an auto accident.
What are some signs that I might have whiplash?
Whiplash pain doesn’t always occur right away. You may not feel pain or any symptoms for days or weeks. When symptoms do kick in, you may start feeling pain, neck soreness, numbness, headaches, and restricted mobility. You may have trouble sleeping. Some people experience anxiety, irritation, or depression from this injury.
When should I visit a chiropractor for a car accident injury?
It’s best to see our chiropractor as soon as possible after your accident to see if you’ve suffered a soft tissue injury. The sooner you are diagnosed, the sooner you can get treatment. Left unchecked, your injury could become a chronic condition.
What injuries can chiropractors treat?
Chiropractic care can be used to treat muscle, joint, ligament, tendon, and nerve injuries caused by auto accidents. These include slipped discs, whiplash, dashboard knee, sprains and strains, spinal misalignments, torn ligaments, and more. Our chiropractor specializes in spinal care, ensuring you get appropriate treatment for spinal related injuries.
How do chiropractors treat auto injuries?
