Auto accidents, even minor ones, can be incredibly stressful. If a car crash leads to an injury, you or your loved one may have to deal with both physical and mental distress! Let our chiropractic team at CryoNext Integrative Healthcare help you heal in both body and mind with our natural techniques that relieve pain and optimize the recovery process.
Types of Auto Accident Injury
Did you know that you can get injured in a car accident even at top speeds of only 10 to 15 miles per hour? The sudden deceleration, acceleration, changes of direction, or even blunt force impact can damage tissues throughout your body, including muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones, joints, discs, and nerves. Some of the most common types of auto accident injury we see at our chiropractic clinic include:
- Nerve impingement, such as sciatica or cervical radiculopathy
- Disc herniation or bulge
- Muscle strains
- Ligament sprains
- Joint dislocations, especially in the neck, shoulder, spine, and hip
Auto accident injuries typically lead to symptoms such as pain, swelling, stiffness, and tenderness. While symptoms usually show up right away or within a day or two after an accident, sometimes it can take weeks or months. This is because stress hormones naturally mask pain and may remain elevated for a long time.
It's for this very reason we recommend anyone who is involved in a car crash to consult a chiropractor. Even without symptoms, our chiropractor can identify auto accident injuries and initiate earlier treatment to prevent lingering conditions from growing worse.
What Our Chiropractic Team Can Do for Your Auto Accident Injury
The great thing about working with a chiropractor after sustaining an auto accident injury is that you'll know you won't be subjected to harsh medications or invasive procedures. Instead, our Oviedo chiropractic team uses completely natural techniques to alleviate pain, reduce swelling, and inflammation, heal injured tissues, relieve pain, and restore the mobility, strength, and alignment you need for optimal health and well-being.
To achieve these goals, we use strategies such as chiropractic adjustments and corrective exercises. We also offer guidance on things you can do outside the office, such as improve your sleep, ergonomics, and nutrition to help you heal even faster from your injury. During your appointment, we can even identify and address hidden postural imbalances or other issues that could be exacerbating your auto accident injury and delaying your recovery.
