Auto Accident Injury
All road users and passengers are at risk of an auto accident injury. Even a slight car collision can cause severe spine or soft tissue injuries, chronic pain, or misalignment. Accident victims in Temple and surrounding cities may seek chiropractic care at Armstrong Chiropractic right away to prevent complications or disability that may result from the accident. Our experienced chiropractor can provide comprehensive treatment even if there are no visible signs or symptoms of injury.
Why You Should Seek Care Right Away
Non-obvious auto accident injuries, such as whiplash, can cause debilitating pain or decrease range of motion if they remain untreated. Chiropractic care can help prevent this from happening and reduce the need for surgery. Drug-free chiropractic adjustments address the root cause of pain and provide long-term relief that drugs may not provide. Getting evaluated and treated right away also protects your overall health and legal rights.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
The nature of the accident and the level of impact are factors that influence these common types of injuries:
- Head Injuries: Contusion, traumatic brain injury (TBI) or concussion, and head wounds
- Neck Injuries: Whiplash, herniated discs, and torn neck muscles, tendons, or ligaments
- Back Injuries: Upper or lower back spine fracture, spinal cord injuries, spinal stenosis, and bulging discs
- Spinal Injuries: Spinal cord compression, bone fracture, and dislocated joints
Sprains, strains, seatbelt bruises, dislocated shoulder, broken collarbone, and knee fracture are also common.
Typical Signs and Symptoms of Accident Injury
Symptoms may include neck or back pain, aches, stiffness, swelling, joint deformity, dizziness, headaches, or blurry vision. Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the extremities may occur due to a pinched nerve.
Natural Auto Accident Injury Treatment by Our Chiropractor in Temple
As part of a comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Armstrong may x-ray your spine to look for misalignment and underlying musculoskeletal injuries. This helps us to properly diagnose and treat you using spinal adjustments and corrective exercises.
A spinal adjustment is a non-invasive chiropractic technique performed using either the Palmer or Gonstead Technique to realign the spine and correct musculoskeletal imbalances. Manipulating the spinal bones and tissue using gentle pressure has proven effective in improving pain, swelling, inflammation, nerve interference, and other symptoms linked to neck, back, spine, and soft tissue injuries.
Corrective exercises help to strengthen the tissue, restore joint functions, and increase flexibility. Our chiropractor may also offer nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice on foods and things that can interfere with the treatment results.
