Common Injuries From Auto Accidents

The sudden jolt from a car accident can cause a myriad of injuries:

  • Whiplash
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Upper and/or lower back pain
  • Tingling or numbness in extremities
  • Headaches
  • Overall body stiffness or soreness
  • Lack of energy

Whiplash Explained

Whiplash is a personal injury to your neck muscles when the impact causes your head to be thrown forward and backward rapidly. The impact on the soft tissue in your neck may cause muscle, tendon, or ligament damage. The pain may be immediate or take days to appear.

Why Symptoms May Be Delayed

When you are involved in a wreck, adrenaline and endorphins can be released. These help block the pain and cause your body to ignore the symptoms. It is not until the adrenaline and endorphins wear off that pain may appear. Symptoms may take hours, or even days, to show up.

I Don’t Think I Have Whiplash, But I Do Have A Stiff Neck

You may have suffered whiplash and not know it. Often, auto accident victims think they just have a sore or stiff neck and figure it will go away. Untreated whiplash can be dangerous and lead to long-term pain if not treated.

How our Charlotte Chiropractor Can Help With Auto Accident Injuries

Whether it’s a high-speed impact or a low-speed accident, chiropractic treatment can definitely help. Accidents can lead to neuromuscular misalignment and limit your range of motion and cause pain. We can help you manage the pain, provide realignment, and help restore your health and mobility.

Treatments Used With Auto Accident Victims

Treatment may include traditional chiropractic care and alignment therapy, spinal decompression therapy, cold laser therapy, electrostimulation, rehabilitative exercise, and more.

The First Visit

We will first do an examination, which may include X-rays, to determine the proper course of treatment. We will give you up front details that will include a diagnosis, treatment plan, and discuss insurance coverage and any costs. After you get the facts, if you decide not to pursue treatment, this is no charge or obligation.
