WHIPLASH FROM CAR ACCIDENTS

Whiplash occurs when the top half of the body, including the head is jerked forward or side-to-side in relation to the bottom half of the body. This is a very common injury that occurs because of the intense force placed on the body after being hit with tons of force. Whiplash symptoms can take days or weeks to develop and may include pain, headaches, stiffness, achiness, and soreness in the body. It can also aggravate symptoms within the body that may have been dormant or asymptomatic. 

Whiplash is the most common type of injury we see and treat. We treat whiplash from car accidents with non-invasive, highly affective modality treatments in coordination with chiropractic care, physical rehabilitation therapy and medication management, if necessary. We take pride in educating our patients, so you feel comfortable along your road to recovery. 

Symptoms may Include:

  • Neck pain and stiffness 
  • Difficulty turning of the head 
  • Headaches 
  • Upper back/shoulder pain, tightness or stiffness 
  • Dizziness 
  • Jaw tightness 

NECK PAIN DUE TO A CAR ACCIDENT

Neck pain due to a car accident is a common injury and can occur even if you were only involved in a fender bender type of accident. During a car accident, the neck is a very vulnerable part of the body and is not well protected. Your body is held in place by your seatbelt but your neck and head are unrestrained at the time of impact. Rapid, sudden movement can cause serious injury to tendons, muscles, ligaments nerves and joints in the neck. 

Our chiropractors will evaluate your musculoskeletal system which consists of your muscles and bones to better understand your injuries. Although physical rehabilitation is our main focus for your recovery, chiropractic care in combination with physical rehabilitation therapy can help advance the healing and recovery process. 

SYMPTOMS MAY INCLUDE: 

  • Neck pain and stiffness 
  • Difficulty turning the head 
  • Headaches 
  • Radiating pain into the shoulders and upper back 
  • Numbness, weakness or tingling into the arms, hands and fingers 

BACK PAIN AFTER AN AUTO ACCIDENT

The back is a remarkably well-engineered complex structure but it is still susceptible to injury and pain. Back pain after a car accident is common. The pain can develop immediately or even days after the car accident. Back pain is usually caused by the large amount of sudden force that is placed on the muscles, ligaments, tendons, discs and nerves during a car accident. You may experience low back pain after a car accident with sitting, standing, bending or when you are trying to fall asleep in bed. 

Physical rehabilitation therapy and chiropractic care can help relieve and manage your back pain. If your back pain doesn’t improve with therapy and/or chiropractic care within a reasonable time we are able to refer you to a provider for medical management. 

SYMPTOMS MAY INCLUDE: 

  • Back stiffness and soreness 
  • Numbness, weakness or tingling into the legs, feet and toes 
  • Muscle spasms 
  • Difficult standing up or sitting straight, walking, or going from sitting to standing 

SHOULDER PAIN AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT

Injuries from a car accident can cause neck pain, back pain and even shoulder pain. The soft tissues, like ligaments, tendons and cartilage in your shoulder are more commonly damaged compared to breaking a bone in your shoulder. Shoulder pain can start immediately after a car accident or even a few days after the collision. Shoulder pain is not only painful but it can affect your work and your ability to perform simple daily tasks. 

Our multidisciplinary team can provide the necessary treatment and physical rehabilitation to address and help alleviate your shoulder pain. We also work closely with shoulder specialists in the local area that can also help manage your shoulder pain. 

SYMPTOMS MAY INCLUDE: 

  • Sharp pain with shoulder movement 
  • Shoulder stiffness and weakness 
  • Sensation of heaviness in the arms 
  • Popping sensation with shoulder movement 
  • Pain when lying on the injured shoulder
