Back Pain Due to Auto Accidents
If you’ve ever been in a car accident, chances are there were some aches and pains, if not something more. One of the most common injury occurrences after an auto accident is back pain. Although you hear this often, back pain can be severe enough to hinder mobility and range of motion. Knowing what to expect and finding the right chiropractic care can help alleviate an injury of this nature. Our trusted Lakewood, Westminster, and Aurora chiropractors provide exceptional care to treat your auto accident related back pain.
Common injuries in auto accidents
There are a number of injuries that can occur, but the most common after a crash are back pain, neck pain or whiplash, and strained muscles. If these injuries are not properly treated, there is a risk of later injuries or pain that may appear. Injuries after an accident are very personal and may not show up until days or even weeks after the initial accident.
Getting chiropractic care
Once you see a doctor, you will probably be referred to a chiropractor who will address your injuries. Chiropractors administer a number of treatments that can help ease the pain and help get you back on track. Back injuries should never be taken lightly. It is important to seek medical attention as quickly as possible to prevent further damage.
What types of treatments are available?
The first step prior to recommending treatment is to assess the type of back pain you are experiencing. A few common symptoms of back pain may include a dull pain in the low back. You may also experience muscle spasms or tightness, or pain that gets progressively worse when in motion. Once the chiropractor is able to determine the cause of pain, a treatment plan can be recommended.
There are a number of effective treatment plans to aid in alleviating back pain. These treatments include massage therapy, hot or cold compress therapy, stretching, a spinal adjustment, acupuncture and other holistic remedies. Every treatment regimen is specific to the patient, ensuring personal needs are met. Our team offers a state-of-the-art experience, with the latest technology and diagnostics designed to provide full functionality in a relaxed and professional environment.
