Car accidents can have serious physical consequences for those involved, ranging from minor aches and pains to more severe injuries that require extensive treatment. At Beck Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Gardner, KS, our resident auto injury chiropractor, Dr. Aaron Beck, is committed to helping patients recover from the effects of car accidents and regain their quality of life.
Potential Auto Accident Complications
Car crashes can cause a wide range of physical issues, depending on the nature of the accident. Many can be completely treated with chiropractic care, while others benefit from chiropractic rehabilitation after a medical doctor has treated the acute issue. Car accidents can cause:
- Whiplash, an injury that results from rapid neck motion and causes pain and limited range of motion
- Concussion, which occurs when the brain hits the wall of the skull and can cause pain, concentration issues, and more
- Other neck and spinal cord injuries
- Sprains, strains, and torn ligaments
- Puncture wounds
- and more
All of these types of injuries have the potential to be treated by an auto injury chiropractor.
At Beck Chiropractic and Acupuncture, we offer a wide range of treatment options aimed at catering to any need that might arise in our patients. The type of injury sustained in an accident will determine the course of treatment deemed necessary. Car accidents often cause soft tissue damage, such as tears and muscular tension. For this, chiropractors may use massage therapy, physical therapy, acupuncture, and/or electrical stimulation to encourage healing and the restoration of normal function. Physical therapy is an extremely common approach since it is able to directly address a multitude of musculoskeletal problems.
In other cases, such as a spinal injury, chiropractic adjustments and decompression may be more appropriate. These treatments restore proper bone alignment and are able to relieve pressure placed on any nerves by said misalignment. Any combination of treatments may be used in order to help you return to optimal health. At your first appointment, the doctor will discuss your condition and design a treatment plan best suited to your needs.
