As a Lewis Center and Delaware chiropractor, Dr. Ashley M. Venturi of Relief Care Chiropractic meets hundreds of men and women struggling with short- and long-term issues related to auto accident injuries. Following are the answers to several questions Dr. Venturi frequently receives regarding auto accident injuries.
What are some common auto accident injuries?
Auto accident injuries often develop due to factors such as blunt force trauma. These external forces create a lot of stress in the body and can lead to tissue damage in the spine and extremities. A few of the most common auto accident injuries we diagnose and treat at our chiropractic clinic include:
- Herniated/bulging discs
- Muscle strains and ligament sprains, especially in the shoulder, spine, and hip
- Generalized neck pain, low back pain, shoulder pain, and hip pain
- Sciatica and other types of nerve compression
- Shoulder dislocation
My car injury was minor and happened weeks ago—shouldn't I be fine?
You don't have to be involved in a major incident to feel the effects. We know that car accidents occurring at speeds of just 10 miles per hour can cause injury. In addition, many people feel "fine" in the first hours, days, or weeks after an injury because their stress hormones—which can mask pain—are still elevated. In these cases, it can take time for a person to begin noticing pain, stiffness, and other auto accident injury symptoms. If left untreated, auto accident injuries can lead to long-term pain and immobility.
How can a chiropractor help treat auto accident injuries?
A chiropractor is an excellent provider to consult when struggling with an auto accident injury. When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your pain and immobility before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it. many of our patients turn to chiropractic care for car accident injury treatment because it does not involve prescription medication or invasive surgery.
Our chiropractor uses a range of treatments to help people with auto accident injuries, including:
- Spinal adjustments
- Myofascial and trigger point release therapy
- Corrective exercises and stretches
- Spinal decompression
- Therapeutic ultrasound
- Electrical stimulation
Early personalized treatment following a car accident can provide short-term relief and prevent long-term complications like chronic neck pain.
