If you have been in a car accident, you may need help managing the pain and damage to your body. It’s important to seek treatment after an accident, so the pain and discomfort does not worsen. Visiting a chiropractor can alleviate back and spinal injuries associated with your accident. At Salinas Chiropractic in Rochelle, IL, we provide multiple services to victims of auto accidents.
Neck and Chest Pain
A common injury from a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash is condition caused by forces violently whip the head back and forth. The severity of whiplash depends on the angle and speed of the other vehicle when they hit your car.
Chest injuries can occur when hitting the steering wheel on impact. This can lead to broken ribs, internal damage, and sore muscles. Chiropractic care can help alleviate pain or discomfort in your chest. Come in for a consultation to see how our team at Salinas Chiropractic can help you recover.
Head and Back Pain
Head injuries are also common to form from a collision. Injuries to the cervical spine often do not show up until days or weeks after the accident. Even if you think you’re fine post-collision, it’s important to still get checked by a doctor. If you are experiencing pain, see our chiropractor as soon as possible to receive natural treatment that does not involve any drugs or surgery.
Injuries to your spine may include a herniated disc or damage to your spinal cord. When you injure your spine, you may feel numbness, tingling, or weakness in your limbs and other areas of the body. We can order X-rays or MRIs to assess and better understand your injured spine. Chiropractic care immediately after an accident can alleviate pain and help speed up the healing process.
