Over three million people per year are injured in car accidents. Even with minor accidents or fender-benders, damage can be done that needs to be addressed. At Life and Vitality Chiropractic in Wayzata, we understand how upsetting an auto accident can be. Our auto accident chiropractors can help! We have gathered some of the common questions that we run into regarding our treatment of auto accident injuries.
Q. What kinds of injuries normally occur in auto accidents?
Injuries resulting from an auto accident may include broken bones, whiplash of the neck, arm and leg injuries, chest or head injuries, and internal bleeding.
Q. What other types of injuries can occur in a car accident?
In addition to the typical types of physical injuries, some patients experience PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). This is a mental disorder that occurs as a result of a traumatic injury or experience. It requires not only medical attention but other types of mental and physical therapy to get through the trauma.
Q. What are some common symptoms after an auto accident?
Some people may note a bruise or abrasion while others may experience headaches, body aches, tingling, confusion, and other symptoms.
Q. Why is an exam necessary from an auto accident chiropractor?
Chiropractic exams after an accident are needed to determine if there is damage to the skeletal system, spinal injuries, head injuries, or other health problems. If you wait, the condition may worsen with time.
Q. What type of therapy is recommended for auto accident injuries?
Following a thorough exam from one of our chiropractors, we can perform spinal manipulations along with other techniques to improve your range of motion and provide pain relief. Chiropractic care supports the body’s natural healing process without having to rely on pain medication or invasive procedures like surgery to produce results.
