Chiropractors are specially trained in dealing with auto accident injury pain such as soft tissue damage, neck injuries, back injuries, and whiplash. Even symptoms such as stiffness and soreness that arise from the impact of the crash can find relief in a chiropractic office. If you’ve recently been injured in a car accident in St. Petersburg, FL, we recommend making an appointment at Sea Change Chiropractic as soon as possible for a car accident evaluation.
Here’s how our car accident chiropractors Drs. Brian Brill, DC, and Heather Champion, D.C. can ease your auto accident injury pain:
- Checking for Spinal Injuries: Car accident victims often let spinal injuries go unnoticed because they are slow to show symptoms. A chiropractor can help by performing an X-Ray to verify the condition of the spine. They are trained to spot these often under-the-radar injuries and can discuss with you treatment options.
- Prevent Muscle Weakness: When your body is forced forward and then backward rapidly, it’s not uncommon to suffer a herniated disc in the back. This can cause severe muscle weakness, tingling, or even numbness throughout the body. By identifying the source of a herniated disc, your chiropractor can solve the related symptoms through spinal manipulation, therapeutic exercises or other manual therapy.
- Ease Pain with Realignment: While painkillers may temporarily ease the discomfort and pain that comes along with suffering an auto accident injury, they don’t solve the problem. Spinal realignment does more than just affect your back; it can ease headaches, general discomfort, or tightness. With a few twists of the back and hand motions on the spine, you can find relief from a multitude of symptoms.
- Improve Range of Motion: Many victims find themselves limited in their range of motion following a car accident injury. It may be easy to assume it will come back over time, but it can cause spinal degeneration if you suffer a soft tissue injury and fail to restore range of motion before it heals. The good news is that chiropractic care can help regain full range of motion as it was before the accident occurred.
While many people are aware that visiting a doctor immediately following a car crash is a good idea, not everyone understands the special ways in which chiropractic service can ease the pain of an auto accident injury.
