Common Auto Accident Injuries and Chiropractic Treatment
If you were in an auto accident, it's important to get checked out by our chiropractor serving Rochester and Webster. We'll inspect you for common injuries and provide effective holistic treatment that heals you without medication.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
An auto accident places your body under a great deal of pressure. Injuries are common in your knees from hitting the dashboard, in your shoulder due to your seat belt, and in your neck from the pressure of the crash. The most common auto accident injuries are:
- Neck pain - Your neck can suffer soft tissue injuries from the crash, or develop subluxations as the cervical spine shifts in the auto accident. Neck pain symptoms include stiffness, soreness, and reduced range of motion.
- Whiplash - Whiplash is a specific type of neck strain that has a delayed onset. Along with neck pain, symptoms include fatigue, confusion, pins and needles, muscle spasms, and pain radiating into the limbs.
- Shoulder pain - Shoulder pain after an auto accident may be due to a torn rotator cuff, muscle injuries from the impact, or referred pain from a neck injury.
- Knee pain - "Dashboard knee" indicates knee pain from the knee cap hitting the dashboard in an auto accident.
How Chiropractic Treats Auto Accident Injuries
Chiropractic adjustments can treat these injuries and alleviate your pain. So if you feel pain in your neck, shoulder or knee after an auto accident, we encourage you to come into our chiropractic clinic for a thorough evaluation! We use the Chiropractic Biophysics Technique, which starts with x-rays to check your musculoskeletal health.
Once we diagnose any injuries, we will begin treating you using chiropractic adjustments. These adjustments bring your spine, joints and ligaments back into alignment to reduce inflammation naturally. Our adjustments reduce pain and promote your body's natural recovery response.
At O'Dell Family Chiropractic, your initial evaluation is just $27. Reserve your evaluation online or call our Rochester chiropractor at 585-671-9210 or our Webster chiropractor at (585) 672-9406 to begin treatment for auto accident injuries.
