Nobody plans to be in a car crash. But when an accident happens, seeing a chiropractor as soon as you're able can help you achieve natural relief from short-term discomfort and may help you avoid long-term complications. At Johnson Chiropractic and Acupuncture, we believe in non-invasive modalities that relieve your pain, restore your range of motion, and improve your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Types of Auto Accident Injury We Treat
Even minor car crashes or “fender benders” can result in auto accident injuries. Common auto accident injuries include:
- Whiplash (a neck pain syndrome caused by forceful, whip-like movement of the neck and head)
- Shoulder pain
- Back pain
- Hip pain
- Disc herniation
People experiencing joint pain or spine pain following a car accident be suffering from injuries like muscle strains, ligament sprains, tendon tears or ruptures, joint dislocations, or some sort of nerve injury (e.g., compression or overstretch). In other cases, there is no clear underlying cause of pain and stiffness following a car accident. We sometimes see a person's nervous system go into high alert, amplifying pain signals and muscle tension in a protective response to the physical and emotional trauma of a car accident.
Sometimes, car accident symptoms don't show up until days or weeks later when stress hormones return to their baseline level. For this reason, we recommend scheduling a chiropractic appointment as soon as possible after a car crash. If hidden tissue damage or nervous system dysfunction is present, our Lincoln chiropractor can address these early and implement personalized services that will help minimize or prevent future pain.
