Natural Relief of Back Pain Due to Auto Accident Injury
Auto accidents can cause both physical and emotional trauma. Seat belts offer some protection but there’s always the risk of broken bones, lacerations or neck, and spinal injury. Spinal injuries may not be so obvious at first. Several days later, however, you’ll realize something’s wrong when you start to feel neck and back pain. If the pain persists, you’d do well to see a chiropractor from Metro Denver Accident & Centers to diagnose the problem. For your convenience, we serve the Westminster, Lakewood, and Aurora areas. The sooner you can get a diagnosis for your injury, the sooner you can get help.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
Auto accidents can cause all kinds of injuries. Some are quite obvious such as lacerations and broken bones. Others may not be so apparent like whiplash, herniated disc, back pain, strains, and sprains. Many people complain of back and neck pain after a crash due to the abrupt force on their neck or back upon impact. Your body wasn’t designed to withstand sudden acute trauma – there’s bound to be some injury to your muscles, bones, ligaments or joints.
It’s not uncommon for auto accidents to cause misalignment of the spine. Spinal misalignment can cause pain, inflammation, soreness, and loss of mobility.
How Chiropractic Can Help
Your first step is to see a chiropractor from Metro Denver Accident & Injury Centers for an accurate diagnosis of your injury. Our chiropractor will review your medical history and give you a complete physical exam to include x-rays to confirm the cause of injury.
We’ll ask you to provide details of your accident and symptoms you’ve been experiencing after the crash. Auto accidents can cause muscles spasms, lower back pain, stiffness and loss of mobility. The more information you can give us, the easier it will be to assess the cause of your pain and design a personalized treatment plan for your recovery.
Spinal adjustment is the basic chiropractic technique utilized for back pain relief. This is a safe, non-invasive technique that involves applying force on your vertebrae to correct problems with misalignment. Alignment of your spine will alleviate pressure on joints and muscles to reduce pain.
Your chiropractor may combine this technique with stretching exercises, massage therapy, hot/cold compresses, and other natural therapies to get optimum results. The beauty of chiropractic care is that it works with your body’s natural ability to heal. The length of your treatment will depend on the severity of your injury. Our goal is to help you find long-lasting pain relief by natural, non-invasive, drug-free means.
