Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries
If you have been in a car accident, you may need help managing your body's pain and damage. It is essential to seek treatment after an accident so pain and discomfort do not worsen. Visiting our team can alleviate back and spinal injuries associated with your accident. Do not put your health at risk. Contact us at Montero Chiropractic Clinic in Yuma after your auto accident, so we can conduct a physical exam and appropriately treat your injury as soon as possible.
A common injury from a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash is a condition caused by forces violently whipping the head back and forth. The severity of whiplash depends on other vehicles' angle and speed when they hit your car. Our whiplash traumatology provides patients with quality relief from pain and discomfort.
Car accidents can severely injure your spine, causing herniated or bulging discs. A sudden impact can push the discs out of alignment and cause a rupture of the disc. This leads to the gel inside the disc to leak out and cause nerve pain. Your back is the center where nerves, muscles, and ligaments come together and can easily be injured in a car accident leading to severe pain and limited motion. Sudden jerking movements and impact can cause fractures in the spine and the facet joints.
Chest injuries can occur when hitting the steering wheel on impact. This can lead to broken ribs, internal damage, and sore muscles. Our care can help alleviate pain or discomfort in any of these parts of the body. Come in for a consultation to see how our team can help you recover.
Head and Back Pain
Head injuries are also expected to form from a collision. Injuries to the cervical spine often do not show up until days or weeks after the accident. Even if you think you are fine post-collision, it is important to still get checked by our team. If you are experiencing pain, see our chiropractor as soon as possible to receive natural treatment that does not involve any drugs or surgery.
Injuries to your spine may include a herniated disc or damage to your spinal cord. When you injure your spine, you may feel numbness, tingling, or weakness in your limbs and other areas of the body. We can order X-rays or MRIs to assess and better understand your injured spine. After an accident, our quality care can alleviate pain and help speed up the healing process.
