Chiropractic Care Promotes Healing of Injuries After Auto Accidents
If you have been injured in a car accident you may not only be traumatized by the experience but you find that you have to deal with other stressors beyond your injuries. The compounded stress of being injured in an auto accident when combined with daily stressors can exacerbate any injury you have sustained. Our chiropractor at Axiom Injury & Rehab in Carrollton treats a number of conditions associated with auto accidents. Below is some information about the most common injuries that we see, and the treatment options our doctor uses to get our patients up and moving again.
What We Treat
Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries we see. Whiplash is a serious condition, and it can have long term consequences if it is not treated. Symptoms associated with whiplash include stiffness and pain in the neck, numbness, and tingling in the arms, fatigue, dizziness, tinnitus, shoulder pain, blurry vision and sleep disturbances.
Sprains and strains are also quite common after a motor vehicle accident. These types of injuries are caused by the tightening of muscles to brace for impact. People also receive these injuries when they try to block their impact, or they hit the affected area of their body with force. We also treat other types of injuries that people sustain in auto accidents such as compressed nerves, sciatic nerve pain, ruptured discs, and torn ligaments.
Chiropractic Treatments For Auto Accident Injuries
Our doctor uses spinal decompression and spinal adjustments as core treatments in our Carrollton clinic. In addition, spinal manipulation treatments are used to help relieve strained muscles and alleviate the pressure placed on nerves caused by herniated or bulging discs. These types of treatments are also used to treat neck pain, shoulder pain, and back pain, as well as improving the function of the nervous system.
Therapeutic ultrasound treatments are also included in treatment plans developed by our doctor. High-frequency sounds are used during this treatment to help accelerate the healing process of tendons, muscles and joints. Ultrasound treatments stimulate the membranes of cells which gives the cells the opportunity to repair themselves. Therapeutic ultrasound helps reduce swelling and promotes healing. Ultrasound treatments can be used to effectively treat muscle spasms, stiffness and back pain. Other treatment modalities used in our clinic include cold laser therapy, heat, and cold therapies and exercise therapy.
