If you have been involved in an auto accident, you can sustain various injuries that can diminish your quality of life. However, chiropractic care offers the testing and treatment patients need to recover from auto injuries and prevent symptoms from returning. If you are in Colorado Springs, our team at Heuser Chiropractic is here to help. 

Common Auto Accident Injuries

Here are some of the most common auto accident injuries we treat at our chiropractic clinic:

  • Whiplash: This condition occurs a collision causes your head to snap back and forth, causing micro-tears in your neck’s ligaments and tendons. Common symptoms of whiplash include dizziness, headaches, and neck pain. 
  • Sciatica: When the sciatic nerve is pinched, you may experience back pain that radiates from the lower back to the back of one leg.
  • Herniated disc: Disc herniation occurs when the spinal disc leaks its inner, gel-like structure, compressing nearby nerves. Symptoms of disc herniation include pain, tingling, and numbness.
  • Neck pain: Your neck’s nerves, ligaments, tendons, and muscles are likely to be injured during a car accident, causing headaches and other symptoms.

If you have been involved in an accident, please seek treatment immediately, even if you have no pain or visible injuries. Auto injuries like whiplash do not manifest symptoms until days or even weeks after impact. Our Chiropractic care can provide effective treatment to prevent such injuries from troubling you in the future.

Chiropractic Treatment for Auto Injuries

After diagnosing your auto injuries, our chiropractors devise a personalized treatment to meet your recovery goals. Here are some techniques we may use to treat your auto injury:

  • Spinal adjustment: This treatment aligns your spinal joints, lifting pressure off the compressed nerves. As a result, you experience reduced pain and improved mobility.
  • Massage therapy: It releases tension in tight muscles and promotes blood flow to the injured area.
  • Stretching exercises: Chiropractic exercises increase range of motion by reducing pain and relaxing tense muscles.
