Common Auto Accident Injuries We Treat
We have treated a wide range of auto accident injuries here in our office, with whiplash being the most common that we see. Specifically, whiplash is an injury that tends to occur at the time of vehicle impact. When you wear a seat belt and are involved in an accident, your upper spine can be thrust forward into the seat belt while your lower back remains mostly stationary. This, in turn, can result in injuries to the mid- and upper-back, such as torn ligaments and tendons as well as damaged muscle surrounding the spine. Over time, you may develop symptoms like back or neck stiffness, pain, and even tingling or numbness.
Furthermore, when you are involved in an auto accident, it is not uncommon for the impact to cause your spine to be thrown out of alignment. When this happens, pressure from the misalignment can be placed on nerve endings, including the sciatic nerve in the lower back—causing a great deal of pain and discomfort. In some cases, the fluid-filled discs between your vertebrae may even become forced out of place or compressed, resulting in herniated and bulging discs.
Why Chiropractic Care in Omaha for Car Accident Injuries?
Fortunately, if you're suffering from car accident injuries with symptoms such as back and neck pain, stiffness, and tingling or numbness, chiropractic treatment may be able to help. It is typically a good idea to seek chiropractic treatment as opposed to invasive surgical procedures or other risky treatment options because chiropractic care is natural, non-invasive, and drug-free. Therefore, you can find the relief you need without the potential risks and side effects that come along with other procedures. This can all be done with treatments such as spinal adjustment, physiological therapy, and corrective exercises to gradually restore your range of motion and relieve tension/stiffness in the spine.
