Auto Accident Injury Treatment At West Hartford Chiropractic
Auto accident injuries can take a number of forms. Whether you're suffering from whiplash, back pain, joint pain, or other difficulties, West Hartford Chiropractic can help. Our staff includes three chiropractors that can treat conditions associated with an auto accident.
Why You Need Chiropractic Treatment After an Auto Accident Injury
An auto accident can throw your body out of alignment in several different ways. It usually inflicts trauma to the entire musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic treatment aims to put your muscles, joints, nerves, and soft tissue back in their proper alignment. That is maybe the most important reason to see a chiropractor as soon as you had the accident.
It's worth noting that pain management is an important service we offer at our practice. Auto Accident injuries like whiplash may not reach their full severity until 48 hours after the accident. Early treatment is necessary to mitigate your pain before it becomes worse.
Some of the more common auto accident injuries we treat include:
- Soft tissue inflammation
- Neck pain
- Pinched nerves
- Back pain
- Pain or numbness in the arms, legs, hands, or feet
- Trouble sleeping
- Blurry vision
- Herniated disc
How a Chiropractor in West Hartford Can Help
There are several ways chiropractic care can help you after your auto accident. These include:
Reduces Inflammation: Through a series of adjustments, stretches, and corrective exercises, we can help your body reduce inflammation on the soft tissue. This can reduce soreness and pain, restore range of motion, and lessen numbness associated with nerve compression.
Spinal Decompression and Adjustments: The spine often undergoes significant trauma in an accident, even when there is no apparent back injury. When vertebrae are violently shifted from side to side, the discs in your back may herniate, slip out of place, or move in some other way that impedes your body. Sometimes, these discs can press against the nerves in your spine, causing pain or numbness almost anywhere in the body. Spinal decompression and adjustments allow the discs to return into place, alleviating pressure and pain.
Restores Range of Motion: Chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy restores range of motion, relieves discomfort, and helps you recover faster.
