Identifying Common Motor Accident Injuries
At Bluegrass Chiro, we often see people who were injured in auto accidents. You may be wondering what types of injuries are most common following auto accidents? Here are just a few that our chiropractors can help you with.
Whiplash involves trauma or injury to the neck. It’s caused by a sudden, severe jerking or “back and forth” motion of the head, and most often occurs after a rear-end collision. Whiplash can result in headaches, neck pain, and an impaired range of motion. Following a whiplash injury, chiropractic adjustments can be used to restore your normal range of motion, heal soft tissue damage, and reduce pain.
Rollover auto accidents, as well as front-end collisions, may result in severe, debilitating back pain. Back injuries are most often caused by the body’s failed attempt to absorb shock from the impact. Through a series of precise adjustments, our chiropractor will gently move your spine back into its correct position. This can alleviate headaches, inflamed tissues, and pain caused by the injury.
The bones, muscles, and ligaments of the shoulder form a very complex system. If even one of these components is compromised, it can result in severe pain and impeded movement. Shoulder pain is often excruciating, and can severely impact your quality of life.
When your back, neck, and shoulder are aligned, it provides the stability the body needs to begin healing. Chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate pressure to reduce pain and accelerate recovery.
