Auto Injuries Q & A

What are the most common auto accident injuries?

The most common auto injuries that are not life-threatening, include:

  • Whiplash
  • Concussions
  • Torn ligaments
  • Sprains and strains
  • Herniated spinal discs
  • Lower back injuries
  • Fractures 

Left untreated, symptoms from whiplash and herniated discs in your spine and neck can lead to chronic, painful conditions. 

If you’re involved in a minor fender-bender, or you’re rear-ended in an auto accident, you may not even realize that you suffered an injury until the next day. That’s when you realize you have sore muscles, a stiff neck, or back pain. These symptoms can indicate an underlying problem, so it’s best to get evaluated as soon as possible if you suspect you have an auto injury.

At iMed Regeneration Center, Dr. Keller, DC, evaluates your symptoms, checks your neck and spine for proper alignment, and determines the extent of your injuries. He then prescribes a natural treatment plan to help your body heal.

How does a chiropractor treat me after an auto injury?

After evaluating your spine, joints, and muscles, and talking to you about your symptoms, Dr. Keller, DC, customizes a natural treatment protocol to foster your body’s own healing abilities. This may include chiropractic care to realign your neck and spine, physical therapy, exercises, and a series of manual adjustments. 

And if you have herniated discs in your spine, you may benefit from spinal decompression therapy. This nonsurgical, noninvasive approach to treating injuries can help reduce the pressure on spinal nerves that occurs as a result of bulging discs. Chiropractic care can also relieve whiplash pain and symptoms so your neck heals and your symptoms don’t become chronic.

What is whiplash?

One of the most common auto injuries, whiplash typically occurs when you’re rear-ended in an accident. Even at low speeds, the sudden impact causes your head and neck to jerk backward and forward, beyond your normal range of motion. As a result, you end up with whiplash and the accompanying symptoms, including:

  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Shoulder pain
  • Stiff neck and reduced range of motion
  • Blurred vision
  • Lower back pain
  • Dizziness

Whiplash is a soft-tissue injury, and it can take a long time to heal. With proper care from an experienced chiropractor like Dr. Keller, DC, you get relief from painful symptoms as your upper (cervical) spine fully recovers from the trauma you experienced.
