Have You Been In A Car Accident?

When an individual gets into a car accident, their body is forcefully thrown forward into their seat-belt. While the seatbelt prevents the individual from slamming forward into the dash, steering wheel and windshield, it does not hold the head and neck in place. As a result, the head and neck continue forward for a short distance before being ricocheted backwards against the headrest. This forceful and sudden movement stretches all the soft tissues in the neck and misaligns the vertebrae, which results in whiplash.

Initially, the individual may not feel any symptoms, especially if the accident was at a low speed or a fender-bender, but after a few days, the injury to the neck will produce neck stiffness, pain and severe headaches. For this reason, our auto accident injury chiropractor at Parker Pain Relief Clinic recommends scheduling an appointment as soon as you are able after your accident.

Neck Pain and Back Pain Treatments from our Parker Auto Accident Chiropractor

Car accidents often result in moderate to severe neck and back pain, even if no visible injuries are present. Our auto accident chiropractor can diagnose and treat the sources of your neck pain and back pain. Our auto accident injury treatment options include chiropractic adjustments, laser therapy and physical therapy.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Whiplash often results in a misalignment of the cervical vertebrae. In extreme cases, the curvature of the neck may be completely removed. If the misalignments are not corrected, the injury could lead to chronic pain and a severe loss of range of motion of the neck. Chiropractic adjustments involve using a smooth, swift force to correct the misalignments and restore proper function of the vertebrae.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is used to treat soft tissues injuries, including sprains and strains. It is a non-invasive treatment option that utilizes specific wavelengths of light. The light penetrates deep into the injured tissues to stimulate regeneration on a cellular level and reduce inflammation and pain.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy involves helping injured muscles regain their strength and flexibility via targeted exercises and stretches. In the case of whiplash, the muscles and ligaments in the neck are injured, which can lead to upper back, shoulder and neck pain as well as loss of range of motion. Stretching and exercising the affected areas can rebuild the strength and range of motion, which will lower your pain and help you heal.

Our chiropractic treatment options at Parker Pain Relief Clinic for auto accident injuries can be used along or combined as part of a total health and wellness treatment program.
