Lingering Effects of Auto Accidents
Sometimes after a car crash, injuries can go undetected for weeks, months, and even years. This can be due to a number of different reasons. Sometimes shock and emotional response to the accident hinder the person from realizing the true extent of their injuries. Often it is due to the fact that many of these injuries are “soft tissue,” meaning that they don’t involve broken bones or skin and can be hidden deep inside muscles and ligaments, and can also involve pinched nerves. The longer that these injuries go untreated, the greater harm they may cause. This is why acting immediately after an accident can be very helpful to your long term health. Even if you feel fine, you should seek medical attention. Chiropractic care can help relieve and heal the hidden injuries and pain that can result from auto accidents. If you have pain or other problems from an auto accident many years ago, or if you were recently in one, call our office in Apple Valley, MN, at (952) 431-5330, or in Shoreview at 651-484-8448 to set up an appointment today.
Common Injuries from Auto Accidents
There are several kinds of injuries that can occur from auto accidents. The most common of these are listed below, and can be treated with chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture, laser therapy, and as a last resort, medications.
Headaches – Painful, reoccurring ones, can result from car accidents for many reasons. Strain of the muscles of the back or neck from an accident can pull on and spread that strain to the muscles that wrap around the head. Chiropractic care, acupuncture, laser therapy, and massage can help ease this pain by relaxing the muscles in the neck, which then reduces the strain being transmitted to the muscles in the head. There are also safe and gentle muscle relaxing medications that can provide relief when nothing else does.
Whiplash and Other Neck Injuries – Neck injuries are quite common from a car accident. The sudden, violent movement of the head that results in whiplash can cause a number of problems in the muscles, nerves, discs, and other tissues of the neck and spinal cord. If you are suffering from neck pain resulting from an auto accident, contact us today to begin treatment that works.
Back Injuries – Back injuries are also quite common following automobile accidents. The muscles, tendons, ligaments, and discs of the spine can be torn or jarred out of place, resulting in strain or even herniation. Chiropractic care combined with massage, acupuncture, laser therapies, and, when needed, medications, can provide the relief you are seeking, avoid surgery, and get you back on your feet again (sometimes literally).
Other Body Injuries – There are endless types of injuries that can result from the impact to the body during a car accident. At Live Healthy Pain Centers, we treat all types of injuries, with the goal of pain reduction, improved function, avoiding lost time at work, avoiding surgery and medication, and returning to a vital, healthy, and active life.
