A personal injury is a legal term that indicates bodily harm, as opposed to property damage. An auto accident is considered a personal injury. Other types of personal injuries include:
These types of personal injuries can lead to several medical conditions, from broken bones to muscle strains to nerve damage. Getting treatment for these injuries is essential for healing and the prevention of more serious health complications.
During a car accident, your body is subject to violent forces that can injure your musculoskeletal system — bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
These types of injuries are among the most common and can lead to lifelong pain and immobility. Injuries to your spine and neck, including whiplash — in which your head forcefully moves forward and backward — can lead to chronic pain and headaches if left untreated.
The Advanced Integrative Medical Center team has many years of experience diagnosing and treating people after auto accidents. Through advanced chiropractic treatments, they not only relieve your immediate symptoms but address any underlying structural damage that occurred.
The Advanced Integrative Medical Center team often sees patients who experience the following symptoms after they were involved in a car accident.
Thoracic outlet syndrome is common as a result of an auto injury. The thoracic outlet is the bundle of nerves and blood vessels that travel through your neck and shoulders. Thoracic outlet syndrome causes pain in your neck and shoulders and numbness in your fingers if left untreated. The team expertly identifies this syndrome and treats it accordingly, so you get relief.
Radicular pain, or radiating pain, is also common after a car accident. It’s the result of interference or pinching of your spinal nerves. You might experience pain, numbness, and tingling in various parts of your body that are far away from the compressed nerve.
Depending on the cause of your pain and your type of injury, the team develops a customized treatment plan to relieve your symptoms and help take the pressure off any pinched nerves.
Your treatment plan may include a series of chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, physical therapy, and other noninvasive techniques such as acupuncture. The goal is to relieve your pain and restore function to the injured areas of your body.
Early treatment after a car accident or personal injury is the best way to prevent long-term pain and chronic debilitating conditions. Chiropractic care is effective at treating a number of common injuries without drugs or surgeries.
