Auto Accident Injury Q & A
What types of injuries are common in auto accidents?
Auto accidents can cause a variety of injuries. One of the most common injuries that occurs during an auto accident is whiplash. Whiplash develops when the patient’s neck moves forcefully in a back-and-forth motion. Some of the symptoms of whiplash include pain in the neck, stiffness, tingling, and other uncomfortable symptoms.
Other injuries that may occur during auto accidents include injuries to joints, muscle sprains, and injuries to tendons or ligaments. Any of these injuries can cause ongoing pain and disability for the patient.
How does Back to Health Chiropractic approach the treatment of auto accident injuries?
Most patients who come to Back to Health Chiropractic have already been to the hospital following the accident. The doctors review the patient’s records and perform a thorough physical exam to identify all of the injuries the patient sustained in the accident. Depending on the patient’s symptoms and the results of the exam, the doctor may also order imaging tests.
Once the doctors identifies all of the patient’s injuries, they create a treatment plan designed to address each issue.
What treatments are available to patients with auto accident injuries?
Some of the treatments available to patients with auto accident injuries include:
- Massage therapy
- Soft tissue manipulation
- Heat therapy
- Corrective exercises
- Spinal manipulation
Each of these treatments serves a different purpose. For example, while massage therapy seeks to release the tension in muscles and improve the patient’s pain, soft tissue manipulation breaks up adhesions and scar tissue that may be interfering with the patient’s recovery. Cryotherapy and heat therapy are designed to alleviate pain in various parts of the body, while spinal manipulation resolves issues with alignment.
How quickly will patients recover with chiropractic care?
Every patient is unique, and some auto accident injuries are more severe than others. Because of this variability, recovery times are difficult to predict. Many patients notice that their symptoms begin to improve after only a few treatment sessions at Back to Health Chiropractic. However, most patients won’t reach their full potential until they’ve attended multiple sessions.
