Auto accidents can cause as much damage to your body as they do to your car. Even a minor accident can result in neck, shoulder, or back pain. At Advanced Back Pain & Injury Center, we can diagnose and treat your auto accident injury to expedite your recovery. These FAQs from our Phoenix/Carefree, AZ chiropractor explain more about chiropractic care for auto injuries.
Why should I see a chiropractor after an accident?
Auto injuries can dislodge muscles, joints, and discs in your spine, leading to pain and loss of bodily function. Our Phoenix and Carefree chiropractor will treat your pain and the root of your pain to promote natural healing of your auto accident injury.
Will insurance pay for my chiropractic treatments?
Most insurance companies cover chiropractic treatments. To be sure, consult with your insurer. If the accident wasn’t your fault, the insurer of the driver at fault may pay for your treatments.
What kind of auto injuries do chiropractors treat?
Our chiropractor can treat an array of musculoskeletal injuries ranging from whiplash to back pain, shoulder pain, dislocations, herniated disc, soft tissue injuries, torn ligaments, sprains and strains, and more.
What is whiplash?
Whiplash is a neck injury caused by the violent, sudden jerking of your head. The abrupt forward/back movement of your head can strain muscles and tendons in your neck, leading to pain, inflammation, and restricted mobility.
What are the symptoms of whiplash?
Whiplash generally causes muscle pain and stiffness, inflammation, and limited range of motion. You may also experience constant headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, and fatigue from whiplash due to difficulty sleeping.
How do chiropractors treat auto accident injuries?
Chiropractic treatments are personalized to suit your individual healthcare needs. In general, however, we utilize natural therapies like chiropractic adjustments, massage, cold laser therapy, physical therapy, and rehab exercises to treat pain and promote natural healing of your injury.
Chiropractic adjustments help relieve pain and discomfort by realigning misplaced bones and joints that are compressing spinal nerves. Adjustments are used to help treat misalignments, herniated discs, sprains and strains, and pinched nerves. Massage therapy is used to ease muscle tension and inflammation and improve blood flow to soft tissue injuries to help them heal. Physical therapy exercises are used to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility and mobility.
After performing a comprehensive physical exam, we’ll have a better idea of how to proceed with your treatment.
