Sharratt Chiropractic Offers Auto Accident Injury Treatment
Injuries sustained in auto accidents can leave individuals with lingering pain and problems with mobility. These issues can have a serious impact on the ability to perform work tasks or even manage everyday activities. At Sharratt Chiropractic in Batavia, IL, we offer a variety of techniques to help patients who have musculoskeletal problems related to auto accident injury.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
An impact with another car can cause a number of different types of injuries. Head injuries, back injuries, herniated discs, and injuries to the shoulder or hip are common. Leg or elbow injuries can also occur. Some individuals experience frequent headaches, chronic joint pain, or nerve compression as a result of the impact. Even after conventional medical treatment, mobility problems may linger and comfort levels may not be the same as before the accident.
Whiplash is another common injury that results from auto accidents. The injury occurs when the head is thrown forward rapidly during impact and then is whipped backward. The muscles, nerves, and upper vertebrae of the spine can receive damage from this motion. However, individuals with whiplash may experience other symptoms in addition to neck pain, such as headaches, dizziness, tingling in the arms, fatigue, blurred vision, and memory problems. Chiropractic techniques can help to restore normal nerve function, relieve discomfort and restore proper alignment to the upper cervical region of the spine.
Chiropractic Techniques Can Help
Our chiropractor in Batavia will carefully analyze your physical condition and design a customized care plan to suit your needs. Gentle chiropractic adjustments may be used to re-align spinal structures for better nerve function. Corrective exercise strengthens muscles to provide better flexibility and greater range of motion. Massage enhances healing and relieves discomfort, bringing increased circulation and natural healing compounds to affected areas. Electrical stimulation of muscles can also be helpful for some injuries. Your chiropractor can also advise you on nutritional supplements to aid healing and ergonomic changes to prevent further injury.
