Have you been hurt in an auto accident? Your Arlington Heights chiropractor may be able to help you reduce the pain you’re still suffering from after a car crash. After you visit the emergency room for any immediate needs, make our chiropractor the next call you make. When auto accidents occur, the body is forced quickly and hard, resulting in significant potential damage to the spinal column and the entire musculoskeletal system. Not receiving care for this can lead to chronic pain and limited mobility. We may be able to help you avoid that. For care in Arlington, Palatine, Kildeer, or the surrounding area after a car crash, call our offices.
As a car accident injury treatment option, you may be able to reduce the pain and limited mobility you’ve developed after your accident when you seek out chiropractic care. During an accident, the spinal column is often impacted even if no outward injury occurs. The spinal column, which runs from the base of your hips to the base of your head, is a connection of smaller bones with cushion-like sacs between them. Properly aligned and working well, they allow you to twist and bend.
In a car accident, these bones are compressed and forced out of proper alignment. This causes pinching of the sacs and the nerves within the spine. You feel pain. It hurts to walk. You may be physically okay in that you do not have broken bones or lacerations, but your neck and back hurt. These are indications the spinal column is no longer properly aligned.
Do you suffer from neck pain? This could be whiplash. Do you have pain when walking? It could be due to a pinched nerve in your back. Car accident injuries can often lead to this type of chronic or acute pain. When you come in to see our chiropractor, we’ll work with you to determine what is wrong and then create a customized plan of treatment.
This may include spinal manipulation through spinal adjustments. During this process, we manually align your spine again, reducing the compression caused by the car accident. We may be able to help reduce pressure on nerves causing your pain as well. Chiropractic care like this may help restore mobility, reduce pain, and improve your overall well-being without surgery or prescription medications.
