A car accident prompts a number of acute injuries that, if untreated, can lead to long-term pain and dysfunction. As a result of the impact of an automobile accident, you may experience:
If you have minor bruising, swelling, or stiffness, it indicates you need to seek treatment. Some symptoms can take a day or two to manifest. If you have pain, you should still consult Dr. McCary even if some time has passed since the event.
Soreness, pain, or loss of mobility in your neck may be symptoms of whiplash. Whiplash occurs when your head and neck snap back and forth rapidly upon impact. Even collisions that happen at a slow pace can cause whiplash and the associated pain. Dr. McCary can relieve any vertebral misalignments, soft-tissue damage, and nerve compression that result from a whiplash injury.
Even if you sustained no direct head trauma during your accident, spinal misalignment and inflammation or tension in the upper body may cause recurring headaches. Dr. McCary can identify the source of your headaches and alleviate any misalignments contributing to them.
The impact of a collision can cause trauma along your spine, leading to neck and back pain. If a spinal disc slips out of place during the force of your collision, you may suffer back pain, posture problems, and chronic soreness and tension as a result. Sore and inflamed tissue in the spine causes extra friction and pain.
Chiropractic adjustments and soft-tissue therapy help restore proper alignment of your vertebrae so pain resolves. They also help resolve associated nerve and muscle pain.
The staff at Laurelhurst Chiropractic is committed to correcting misalignment and reducing inflammation — the two biggest sources of pain and trauma following an automobile accident. After reviewing your specific situation, Dr. McCary may apply spinal adjustments, manual and instrument-assisted chiropractic manipulations, decompression therapy, and soft-tissue massage.
