Car Accident Chiropractic

Innovative Chiropractic Care for Whiplash, Neck Pain, Headaches and Migraines

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in automobile accidents. It occurs during the impact of your accident when your neck is forcibly “whipped” back and forth and side to side past its normal range of motion. Whiplash affects the muscles and tissues in your back and neck. You may feel stiffness, back pain and neck pain immediately or it could take days or weeks, for symptoms to appear. If left untreated it can take months or years for symptoms to appear. It is crucial to treat whiplash immediately even if you are not yet experiencing neck or back pain.

Headaches and migraines can be caused by whiplash, head injuries or other types of car accident injury. Headaches can appear when your neck is damaged because the stress or strain on your neck muscles can cause blood flow changes and pain to radiate to your head. Head injuries or trauma to your head can cause headaches and migraines. If you are experiencing headaches after your car accident, then you should get treated as soon as possible so that your headache pain does not become permanent.

Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injury: Drug-Free Pain Relief is Possible

If you are suffering from back pain or neck pain after a car accident, you may have sustained a spinal injury or a whiplash injury. Without proper care, these injuries can have a serious impact on your health, leading to months or even years of chronic pain. Dr. Rook Torres has 15 years experience treating auto accident injury patients and understands the clinical research and best protocols to quickly help resolve back pain and whiplash pain without the need for medication or surgery.

Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injury Treats Whiplash Pain

Neck pain and back pain occurs when the force of an auto accident knocks or whips the neck, stretching ligaments, straining muscles and, worst of all, damaging nerves. Not only does this abrupt movement knock the spine out of alignment, but it also strains the neck, causing further stiffness, soreness and pain. Traditional medical care after an auto accident injury relies on medication to cover up pain. While prescription painkillers are effective for providing temporary pain relief, they are not a long-term solution to the underlying damage that needs repaired. Most importantly, medication alone cannot help patients regain mobility after a spinal injury.

Chiropractic care for auto accident injuries helps dramatically.

Chiropractic adjustments treat the underlying spinal damage from whiplash injury. Adjustments relieve pressure on the nerves and muscles, while also bringing alignment back to the spine so ligaments and soft tissues can heal up strong again. Additional therapies, including corrective exercises, massage, and soft tissue work will help bring the full range of motion back.

If you have recently been in a car accident, contact our Dr. Torres as soon as possible. Case study research shows untreated motor vehicle accident injuries, particularly to the neck can lead to more serious neurological problems in the future. Although the reason why is obvious, it may be something that you have never thought of before. That is, whenever there is damage to the spine, the spinal cord and nerves are affected. If this damage is not repaired properly is may lead to more severe problems over time.

Acute and chronic pain both benefit from prompt treatment. With proper diagnostic care, Dr. Torres will be able to identify your underlying injuries and create a custom treatment program to support your body’s natural healing process. You do not need to be in a major accident to sustain serious damage. Injuries at speeds as slow as 5 mph can knock the cervical spine out of alignment causing a painful whiplash injury. Unfortunately, since a fender bender is considered to be a “minor” accident, accident victims typically delay seeking treatment, which can lead to a lifetime of health problems. Prompt care makes a difference!
