Can a Chiropractor Help Me After My Auto Accident?
Chiropractors are able to treat soft tissue and biomechanical injuries associated with auto accidents. Many times, individuals who have been injured in a car accident experience such intense muscle pain and stiffness that they simply cannot function normally. When left untreated, scar tissue and loss of range of motion can remain a serious issue.
After an auto accident, some individuals experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away, such as blurred vision, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, reduced range of motion and arm pain. Whiplash can also result in minor back injuries, muscle injuries, ligament problems, and disc damage. Other individuals may be injured and feel fine at first, developing symptoms a few weeks later.
Chiropractors are specially trained to use modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound, microcurrent, electrical stimulation, trigger point therapy. Dr. Callahan is licensed to perform acupuncture as well, which helps with pain and headaches.
If you’ve had an auto accident recently, your first priority should be taking the initiative to visit your chiropractor!
