If you are involved in a car accident, the extent of your vehicle’s damage is not a true indicator of your health’s condition.
Even minor car collisions or “fender benders” can cause a plethora of health complications that have long-term to permanent effects.
If you are involved in a car accident, regardless of how extensive the damage is, it is imperative that you schedule a complete Chiropractic examination as soon as possible to protect yourself.
Too many car accident victims try to move forward from their incident without receiving proper Chiropractic attention or working through the necessary steps associated with insurance and personal injury claims.
Even if you walk away from your car accident feeling well, that does not mean you are off the hook when it comes to your health and overall physical condition.
Some car accident injuries like Whiplash do not present any symptoms for several days to a few months after the original incident took place, making it very difficult to diagnose the source of your condition.
To protect your long-term health following a car accident, check out the following accident injuries that are commonly treated by AICA Jonesboro’s Chiropractors:
Whiplash is the most common injury sustained as a result of a car accident.
When your neck is forced or “whipped” in multiple directions simultaneously, the tendons, ligaments, and tissue that surrounds your neck become stretched beyond their limits and tears.
Whiplash can easily cause serious complications for your vertebrae, ligaments, muscles, discs, and spinal cord depending on the severity.
It can also lead to chronic pain that has the potential to permanently alter your ability to follow through with basic tasks and responsibilities. In some cases where car accident victims refuse to seek professional treatment, Whiplash can lead to a variety of permanent conditions like paralysis or loss of function in limbs.
The good news is that the Chiropractors at AICA Jonesboro treat hundreds of patients who suffer from Whiplash each year.Through regular Chiropractic Adjustments, our team can help restore mobility within individual spinal columns, allowing stretched muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints to heal
Through regular Chiropractic Adjustments, our team can help restore mobility within different spinal columns, allowing pulled muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints to heal correctly and in their appropriate positions.
Lower back injuries are also common among car accident victims and can be treated with Chiropractic care.
Most accident victims who injure their backs suffer from sprains, herniated discs, or fractured bones.
Through a series of controlled spinal adjustments, our Jonesboro Chiropractors can realign your spinal column and remove any particular interferences that prevent your body from naturally healing.
Our techniques are also useful for reducing inflammation, removing pressure from pinched nerves, and eliminating sharp pain.
