Auto Accident Injury Treatment with our Jacksonville Chiropractor
Auto accidents always seem to happen when one least expects them. They can result in an array of serious personal injuries that are painful and that severely restrict mobility. Patients can rely on the professional services of Dr. Alan Khiger, our Jacksonville chiropractor here at Amazing Spine Care. We provide effective pain relief from auto accidents through gentle chiropractic care.
Types of Injuries Commonly Sustained in Auto Accidents
The most commonly experienced types of injuries sustained in car accidents are impact injuries to the back. These occur when the body violently slams into a part of the vehicle or another object upon collision, or when one is hit by unsecured airborne cargo. The most common auto accident injury is whiplash, but other types of auto injuries include:
- Head injuries
- Broken bones
- Torso injuries
- Neck injuries
- Hand and arm injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Leg and foot injuries
Not all Injuries are Immediately Obvious
Oftentimes, car accidents will result in lacerations, broken bones or bruises. These injuries are easy to detect. However, there are injuries that take a few days to set in due to the adrenaline following an auto accident. For instance, whiplash often isn't felt until a day, or up to several days, after the accident. Symptoms can include dizziness, pain in the upper back and neck, headaches and soreness.
Other injuries that are not immediately obvious can include mild brain injuries, neck or shoulder pain, abdominal pain, swelling, numbness and marked changes in physical functioning. Early detection is the best way to achieve faster recovery. This is why is it important not to wait until you feel pain before seeing a chiropractor; waiting for treatment can result in long-term pain.
Chiropractic Treatment for Auto Accident Injuries
A chiropractor can help you reduce pain and promote healing after an auto accident, by administering non-invasive, gentle, chiropractic adjustments. These spinal adjustments realign the joints and spine significantly, help relieve pain, and negate the need for surgery.
At Amazing Spine Care, our chiropractor is trained in injury therapy methods that can help eliminate pain and restore a full range of motion gently and quickly. Our doctor focuses on locating the source of the pain, then uses safe, non-invasive spinal adjustments to effectively relieve it.
Every patient is different. Therefore, each patient's treatment is personalized and specific to his or her injury. Our chiropractor works with other health professionals, including physicians, massage therapists, and acupuncturists to create the most effective treatment plan for each patient.
