Why Do You Need Auto Injury Care?

Car accidents are fairly common, and that’s part of the reason why many of us don’t see them as especially troubling. Even if you feel off after your accident, you may believe that seeking treatment is unnecessary. Dispelling those misguided beliefs is easy once you talk about the injuries that usually stem from car crashes.

Whiplash is an especially troubling injury that may result from an auto accident. Neck pain and stiffness are the most recognizable symptoms of whiplash, but there are aspects of that injury you need to worry about. You may not realize it immediately, but your cognitive performance could suffer due to the effects of whiplash. Until you receive proper care, those whiplash symptoms may persist.

Another injury you may sustain during a car accident is a herniated disc. Herniated discs are often caused by wear and tear, but they could also be byproducts of traumatic accidents. A forceful blow directly to your back may damage the outer casing of a spinal disc, allowing its inner gel to leak through or push the disc further outward. Addressing a herniated disc as soon as possible is important because the pain and weakness they cause can be quite disruptive.

Compared to whiplash injuries and herniated discs, sprains and strains may not seem so bad. Of course, anyone who’s dealt with those injuries will tell you differently. Outside of reducing your range of motion, sprains and strains can also be very painful. You’ll be hard-pressed to complete your daily tasks if you’re dealing with a sprain or strain.

What Type of Auto Injury Care Can Your Chiropractor Provide?

Chiropractic care excels at helping car accident victims. That’s mainly because specific chiropractic treatment methods tend to work well on common car crash injuries.

Your chiropractor can use spinal adjustments to treat your sprains, strains, and whiplash. Sprains, strains, and whiplash are auto accident injuries that result from misalignments that form along your musculoskeletal system. Correcting those misalignments will alleviate your symptoms.

Herniated discs can also be treated using spinal adjustments, but that’s not the only tool in your chiropractor’s arsenal. Spinal decompression is another effective form of treatment against a herniated disc. The aforementioned treatment method can promote faster recovery. It can also create negative pressure along your spine that may cause your herniated disc to retract.
