Auto Accident Injury FAQs
Enter text here
The symptoms of auto accident injury depend on the type of injury the patient has sustained. Some common symptoms include:
- Muscle stiffness and tension.
- Limited mobility.
- Limited range of motion.
- Pain and tenderness.
- Difficulty sleeping.
- Pain in the joints.
- Blurry vision.
Auto accident injuries span a range from musculoskeletal injuries to head injuries. For example:
- Concussion: A concussion is a condition that occurs when the brain is injured. Among other symptoms, concussions can cause headaches, nausea, and vomiting.
- Herniated disc: A herniated disc occurs when the disc between the vertebrae protrudes from the tough casing that encloses it.
- Seatbelt injury: Passengers thrown against the seatbelt may experience bruising, swelling and pain.
- Whiplash: This condition occurs when the muscles and ligaments in the neck develop tiny tears.:
Chiropractors treat auto accident injuries with a variety of techniques. At Synergy Health Partners, we use spinal adjustment to help patients manage their pain and recover from their injuries. This technique is used to realign the vertebrae, improve the functioning of the central nervous system and encourage healing for the patient.
In addition, we use massage therapy to improve circulation and speed the healing process. We also teach our patients stretches and exercises that can help strengthen the muscles and improve range of mobility.
There are many reasons to seek chiropractic care for auto accident injuries.
- Non-invasive. Chiropractic care treats conditions without invasive surgical procedures.
- Medication-free. Chiropractors never prescribe addictive medications to mask pain. Instead, chiropractors treat pain at its source, by addressing the underlying problem.
- Complementary. You can see a chiropractor even when you’re seeking other forms of treatment for your injuries.
Acupuncture is a method of healing that originated in China thousands of years ago. Thin needles are placed on specific parts of the body to relieve pain. Over 3 million Americans have found relief from their pain and dysfunction through acupuncture.
Many people do not like needles, but acupuncture does not hurt. The needles are very thin, and placed just under the skin to rejuvenate the body. Most people feel little to no pain, and usually feel relaxed and full of energy after one treatment session. Sometimes, needles may cause soreness that does not last very long after treatment.
Acupuncture can help improve symptoms of many conditions. Some of these conditions include low back pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, pain from arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, dental pain, and other types of pain. Based on where the pain is coming from, needles will be placed strategically on the body to remove pain and heal those areas. Acupuncture has even been shown to help reduce nausea, improve symptoms from cancer treatment, and help with fertility issues.
Acupuncture heals by realigning the body’s flow of energy through specific points on the body. There are 14 energy pathways that work together to heal the body. When one part of the body is injured, these pathways are not aligned with each other. The needles placed just below the skin’s surface release endorphins that improve brain activity and blood flow. Endorphins are natural painkillers that help reduce pain in the body during and after acupuncture.
