Reliable Treatment for Auto Accident Injuries
If you are involved in an auto accident, even if it seems relatively minor at the time, you should see one of our chiropractors as soon as possible. Unlike broken bones or bleeding wounds which are immediately obvious, neck and back damage may manifest weeks or months after the accident, long after the legal and financial fallout of the accident has been resolved. Our team at 39 Chiro in Fredericksburg and Millersburg will walk you through your diagnosis, treatment plan, and self-care that you can do at home when you have received an auto accident injury.
Hidden Auto Accident Injuries
There is a common misconception in American culture that anything that is not broken or gushing blood probably is not that serious. Your body is designed to let you know when things are not working as they should. You may assume that any soreness you are experiencing after an accident is normal and will pass on its own. You may be so agitated over the event that you tune out your body’s warning signs until they can no longer be ignored.
If you have been in an accident or experience the symptoms of whiplash, the injuries you have sustained may become worse if they do not heal properly in the following weeks. Our chiropractors specialize in back and neck pain and are experts in treating musculoskeletal issues.
What is Whiplash?
Picture the body of a driver or passenger during an auto accident. Imagine the impact in slow motion with the sudden whipping movement of the neck and head as the seat hammers into the spine. Next the torso and head fly forward before being grabbed by the seatbelt, usually leading to the head snapping forward. The vertebrae are knocked out of alignment and muscles, discs, and ligaments may have been damaged.
As with any trauma, no two experiences are exactly the same and no two people will respond the same way. Our chiropractors will identify in detail what damage has been done. Instead of ignoring the pain or masking it with medication, we will help your body repair itself through a series of precise adjustments and other therapies. We may recommend specific exercises and stretches for you to do at home as well.
