we specialize in helping you get back to feeling like yourself after an auto accident. We know that it can be a scary time and we make it our goal to ensure that you feel great as quickly as possible.
An auto accident has the ability to tweak your neck, your spine, or even force your entire body out of proper alignment. Our trained professionals are ready to locate the source of each issue and prescribe the necessary adjustments and corrective exercises as they see fit. Our goal is to have you feeling like yourself again in no time.
One of the main injuries that can occur in an auto accident is whiplash. Whiplash is a sudden movement of the head being pushed quickly backward and then forward. It can even happen side to side. Whiplash destabilizes your spine and can even cause pain in other areas. You may notice shoulder pain, blurred vision, neck pain, increased headaches, dizziness, arm pain, and much more.
Chiropractic care is important after an auto accident because if the effects go untreated, they can become a long-term problem that will continue to affect you for many years to come. In an auto accident, you may not feel the side effects right away. In fact, it may take weeks or even months to notice the full effect of the accident.
Even if you had a minor auto accident, you will want to see a chiropractor to ensure that everything is still aligned.
Many people mistakenly categorize whiplash as a minor injury, but that’s far from the truth. Whiplash occurs when your body is traveling at a certain speed within the car and then comes to a slamming halt. The forces placed on your neck and spine cause it to whip back and forth rapidly, tearing muscles, ligaments and other bodily structures. The result is pain and inflammation, which may take a while to present themselves.
Whiplash may be accompanied by a variety of other symptoms. These include:
- Pins and needles
- Pain or soreness in the arms
- Lower back pain
- Anxiety or depression
Headaches and Migraines
When most people get a pounding headache, they continue on with their day, lie down, or pop a pill and hope for the best. There is a better way!
Ninety-five percent of headaches are tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused from a disease, but from something in your body that is not sitting correctly.
Chiropractic care can assist you if you are experiencing headaches. We will be able to perform spinal manipulation or adjustments that improve spinal function and alleviate the stress of your system. We can provide nutritional advice and recommend a change in your diet to address what may be causing your headaches. We are also able to offer advice on your posture, take you through exercises, and show you relaxation techniques. These will assist you in relieving the recurring joint irritation and tension in the muscles of your neck and upper back.
Patients with migraine problems also typically have neck pain issues, a family history of migraines, and nasal congestion. Since migraines are not fun for anyone, it is no wonder so many people look for relief.
Chiropractic treatment has helped so many people get rid of their migraines, even for good! Prior to treatment, our educated and compassionate chiropractor will also take you through a physical exam to ensure that there are no other reasons behind your pain. After this, we start by trying sensitive trigger points in your lower neck and upper back muscles. By stimulating these areas, the migraine symptoms will actually start to go away.
Sciatica is a symptom that affects the sciatic nerves that run through a person’s legs. This often causes pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness in the legs.
There are many conditions that can cause sciatica, such as degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, lumbar herniated disc, or spinal stenosis. Some of the symptoms associated with Sciatica are pain in the leg or buttock, pain while sitting, sharp pain when sitting or walking, and pain that radiates down the leg.
Having neck pain can be extremely painful and uncomfortable. You forget how important your neck health is until you begin having neck pain.
Your neck, also called the cervical spine, supports the full weight of your head. The average weight of someone’s head is twelve pounds, making the neck very susceptible to pain.
Neck pain can be caused by many things, including sitting for long periods of time, repetitive moments, automotive accidents, and even falling. Everyday wear and tear can also give you neck pain.
During your first visit with us, we will do a thorough evaluation and ask you some questions. Ultimately, we want to find the exact root of your problem. By figuring this out, we’ll be able to be on our way to getting you to be pain free.
Chronic back pain is one of the biggest problems Americans face today and affects eight out of ten people at some point in their lives. Even though back pain is common, the level of severity varies. A variety of different conditions are responsible for discomfort in different regions of your back. These include sprained ligaments, strained muscles, trigger points, arthritis, ruptured discs, inflamed joints, sport injuries, and many more. We will locate the source and do everything we can to ease the uncomfortable pain you may be experiencing.
Extremities such as the jaw, shoulders, ribs, wrists, elbows, fingers, hands, hips, ankles, knees, toes, and feet are the numerous joints present in the body.
