An Overview of Auto Accident Injury Treatment from Cape Coral Family Chiropractic
Even when you take every precaution, if you get behind the wheel, you're at risk for an accident. At Cape Coral Family Chiropractic, our chiropractor handles common auto accident injuries and more to provide pain relief and faster recovery.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
Whiplash is a common condition that results from an auto accident. Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are forced suddenly in one direction and then violently in another direction. This back-and-forth action may lead to a sprain of the ligaments in the neck. Whiplash will cause stiffness in the neck and can make even the simplest of daily activities a painful experience. It is also very common for the pain from such an injury to manifest hours or even days after the accident.
Herniated discs are another common injury that results from an auto accident. This injury occurs when a spinal disc ruptures, causing the soft internal material to leak into the general area. A herniated disc can irritate the nerves in the back and send shooting pain throughout the extremities. Herniated discs do not always require surgery and can often be treated using chiropractic care. Our chiropractor can provide adjustments to the affected area to reduce irritation, provide pain relief, and hasten recovery.
Finally, we also see a lot of headaches following car accidents. When most people think of chiropractic care, treatment of the back and neck comes to mind. But did you know that a chiropractor can help with tension headaches and migraines too? Our chiropractic adjustments can improve your blood flow and reduce muscle tension. Both of these factors have been found to provide relief from headaches. Best of all, chiropractic care is natural and drug-free, allowing you to avoid any nasty side effects from pain medication.
