Auto accidents can cause extensive damage not only to your vehicle, but to you as well. You can sustain all kinds of injuries in an auto crash, ranging from broken bones to musculoskeletal injuries. At Crystal Springs Chiropractic, we offer chiropractic auto accident treatment to help you recover from injuries to your muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. These FAQs from our San Mateo chiropractor explain more about musculoskeletal auto injuries and chiropractic motor vehicle treatment.
Why should I see a chiropractor after an auto accident?
Some of the most common injuries caused by auto accidents are those to your skeletal system to include sprains and strains, damage to spinal discs, dislocations, whiplash, soft tissue injuries, and shoulder and back pain. Chiropractors specialize in musculoskeletal auto accident treatment. Our San Mateo chiropractor will treat your pain and the source of your pain to help you fully recover from your injury.
When should I see a chiropractor after an auto accident?
We recommend seeing a chiropractor as soon as possible after your auto accident, certainly within 30 days of the incident, even if you’re not experiencing pain. Sometimes pain is delayed due to the shock on your system. We can give you an accurate diagnosis of your injury, so you can start treatment without delay.
How do I know if I have whiplash?
Whiplash is a common auto accident injury. Even mild whiplash can cause troublesome neck pain and discomfort. Whiplash can cause debilitating symptoms like neck pain and inflammation, stiffness, headaches, dizziness, loss of range of motion, limited mobility, and loss of sleep. For an accurate diagnosis of whiplash, contact our San Mateo chiropractor.
What does chiropractic motor vehicle treatment entail?
Chiropractic care offers a drug-free, noninvasive, natural means of treating musculoskeletal injuries. Our chiropractor may use chiropractic techniques like spinal manipulation or adjustments, combined with hot/cold treatments, soft tissue massage, and rehab exercises to reduce pain, restore body function, and help you recover from your auto injury.
How does chiropractic care provide pain relief?
Auto accidents can lead to misaligned bones and joints in your spine or herniated disc. These misplaced structures can put pressure on spinal nerves, causing extensive pain and loss of spinal mobility. Adjustments are used to correct misalignments by easing these structures back into their proper position. This releases pressure from spinal nerves to reduce pain and restore body function. Massage helps ease muscle tension and improves circulation so your body can heal quicker. Rehab exercises help restore flexibility and mobility.
