How Are Auto Accident Injuries Treated by A Chiropractor?
Updated: Nov 4, 2020
Some car accidents leave a driver in debilitating pain if the crash was forceful enough. That doesn’t mean you have to live out the rest of your life in pain! Natural Care Chiropractic in Lindenhurst, IL is there for you when accidents happen. Dr. Freund and Dr. Gopaul are experienced in finding the right treatment plan unique to a patient’s problem.
Whiplash is the most common injury from an auto accident. According to Mayo Clinic, “whiplash is a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip.” When a part of the body is whipped back and then forward beyond its normal range of motion, micro-tears form in the surrounding ligaments. Usually, it’s when the micro-tears start to swell that the symptoms begin. Symptoms of whiplash include:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Low back pain
- Blurred vision
- Limited range of motion of the neck
- Arm pain
Chiropractic care not only treats these symptoms but corrects where the problem stems from as well. A chiropractor takes a more holistic approach and avoids the use of drugs to treat symptomatically. Dr. Freund or Dr. Gopaul help relieve pain, restore mobility, and support long-term healing with a variety of techniques.
