Car accidents can leave you broken and bruised. In addition to injuries you can see, you may also suffer injuries you can’t see to your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. These soft tissue injuries can leave you with pain, inflammation, and restricted mobility. These FAQs from The Accident and Injury Team in Miami Lakes explain more about soft tissue injuries and how chiropractic care can help.
What kind of injuries can car accidents cause?
Car accidents can cause such injuries as whiplash, herniated disc, muscle strains, ligament sprains, pinched nerves, and misalignments in spine. Our doctors has ample experience treating these types of injuries and more.
Why should I see a chiropractor for auto accident injuries?
Chiropractors specialize in the treatment of injuries dealing with your muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and nerves. While a conventional doctor may prescribe medications to relieve pain, our doctors use natural chiropractic techniques and therapies to reduce pain and promote natural healing. Our treatments are noninvasive and drug-free, eliminating your risk of getting addicted to pain pills.
When should I see a chiropractor after an auto accident?
We recommend a visit to our clinic as soon as possible after your car accident, even if you’re not experiencing pain. Some injuries, like whiplash, may not be painful immediately, but symptoms could arise days or weeks later when the condition has worsened. A prompt diagnosis will enable you to get treatment sooner to promote quicker healing.
How does chiropractic care help with injuries caused by car accidents?
Our office offers numerous options for treatment of auto accident injuries. After an examination, we’ll have a better idea of your condition so we can customize a treatment plan to relieve your pain and help you heal.
If the accident caused spinal bones or joints to shift out of place, we’ll use chiropractic adjustments or spinal manipulation to realign your skeletal system. This reduces pain and improves blood flow to injured areas so your body can start to heal. Depending on your condition, we may add other therapies like rehab exercises to your treatment plan to promote healing. Rehab exercises may restore flexibility and mobility to your spine. Chiropractic care treats both your pain and the cause of your pain to help your body heal from auto accident injuries.
