Auto accident injuries can take a variety of forms and make a devastating impact on your quality of life. Spinal subluxation, soft tissue damage, pinched nerves and other problems can leave you with everything from whiplash to sciatica. But while these injuries may seem obvious enough, they may not make themselves known to you right away -- and the typical hospital visit won't provide the detailed musculoskeletal corrections you may need to permit a full recovery. That's why you want to get your auto accident treatment right here at Lafayette Chiropractic Clinic.
An auto accident is a big event even when it occurs at a low rate of speed. When a massive vehicle is brought to sudden, complete stop, the objects (and people) within it are subject to significant forces that bump, jolt, or throw them around. Even if you're strapped into a three-point harness, one side of your body may fly forward. This can twist the spine, pushing vertebral joints out of position and strain muscles. Lower down on the body, these forces can throw your lumbar spine out of alignment, producing herniated discs and other injuries that press against the sciatic nerve. The result is the collection of leg pain, weakness and other symptoms known as sciatica.
One of the most infamous of all auto accident injuries is whiplash. When the head flies back and forth in response to a sudden stop, the high-speed motion can do painful damage to the structures of the neck, from cervical spinal dislocations and herniated cervical discs to torn muscles, ligaments and tendons. Symptoms can include neurological problems in the arms and hands, headaches, cognitive problems, and hearing or vision abnormalities.
Some people don't feel any such symptoms after experiencing an auto accident -- but that doesn't mean they aren't injured. On the contrary, you can sustain an injury and not even know it for quite some time. This means you're walking around with an injury that can't heal properly and is probably getting worse and worse. Untreated, these injuries can even lead to irreversible spinal osteoarthritis. A brief emergency room visit may or may not catch these hidden problems, which is why you need to schedule a trip to our clinic ASAP whether you feel bad or not.
Our chiropractor in Tallahassee FL, Dr. Jensen, knows exactly what to look for in individuals who have experienced an auto accident. X-rays and other diagnostic procedures can reveal even those spinal changes that aren't yet causing pain or other symptoms -- allowing us to provide immediate treatment that may prevent the development of those symptoms altogether. If you're already in pain, we can administer immediate care to relieve that pain without heavy painkillers or invasive surgery. Your personalized auto accident injury plan may include a variety of treatment modalities, including:
Don't let an obvious or not-so-obvious auto accident injury create long-term physical problems for you. Take action today to address the damage and get your body back on the road to health.
