Common Auto Accident Injuries
Concussion, contusions, spinal fractures, misalignment, and soft tissue injuries such as seat belt bruises are commonly seen in patients. Other mild to severe injuries to the neck, bones, joints, soft tissue, and nerve in the spine include:
- Herniated discs
- Whiplash (neck sprain)
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Upper or low back injuries
- Shoulder or chest injuries
- Compressed nerves
- Leg or knee injuries
Typical Accident Injury Symptoms
Common symptoms are pain or stiffness in the neck, upper back, lower back, shoulder, chest, or the extremities. Sciatica or nerve pain may occur from a pinched sciatic nerve. Other symptoms are swelling, joint deformity, headaches, dizziness, body aches, decreased range of motion, and numbness, tingling, or weakness. However, symptoms may not show up until hours, days, or weeks later. Whiplash is a type of auto injury that may not trigger symptoms right away, but it has the potential to cause neck instability or loss of mobility.
Auto Accident Injury Treatment by Our Chiropractors in Saint Cloud
Chiropractic adjustment has proven to be an effective technique for correcting misalignment of the spine following a car crash. Spinal correction alleviates neck and back pain caused by herniated discs, inflammation, and pressure on the nerve and soft tissue. Spinal adjustment is performed by gently manipulating the dislocated spinal structures back into their proper position. This painless procedure stimulates the flow of healing nutrients to the spine, helps improve headaches, and increase flexibility.
We may suggest therapeutic massages and corrective exercises to further reduce pain, inflammation, and stiffness. These techniques and therapies when coupled with nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice maximize healing and restore balance.
