Receiving Chiropractic Treatment to Help with an Auto Injury
About three million people suffer an auto injury each year. Some of these are minor, but many lead to chronic issues like headaches and limited mobility. Your chiropractor at Vitality Chiropractic in Edmond, OK, understands the suffering of those injured in a car accident. They have the training, experience, and the means to help relieve your pain, enhance your mobility, and support your body's natural healing process.
Getting Help with Back Pain Caused by a Car Accident
Back pain from a car accident can be related to your spine, strained muscles, or overextended connective tissues. Your chiropractor will give you a thorough examination of your spine by looking for any misaligned vertebrae or if a disc has herniated.
Both an out of alignment vertebra and a herniated disc can put pressure on a nearby nerve. This pressure causes pain, numbness, and muscle weakness. Your chiropractor will work any out of place vertebra back into position and treat a herniated disc so that it can heal. With targeted exercises, muscles and connective tissues can be strengthened to help hold the affected vertebra in place.
Strained muscles and connective tissues can cause inflammation. This inflammation which puts pressure on nerves. Using various techniques, like massage therapy and electric muscle stimulation, your chiropractor will help reduce inflammation. This will bring relief to your nerves, relieving pain and allowing your muscles to work properly.
Getting Relief from Whiplash
Whiplash as the result of an auto accident injury can be very painful. A stiff neck, headaches, shoulder, and arm pain are all symptoms of whiplash. The rapid movement of the neck that causes whiplash can overextend muscles, ligaments, and tendons. It can also force a vertebra in your neck out of alignment. Healing techniques at the disposal of your chiropractor can help to relieve the symptoms of whiplash.
Your chiropractor will check the alignment of the vertebrae in your neck and gently work any misaligned vertebrae back into position. This will relieve any pain causing pressure put on nearby nerves. It also will help any inflammation to subside. Chiropractors use muscle relaxing and stimulating techniques to reduce inflammation as well.
