Auto Accident Injury Treatment – A Natural Method
As a leading cause of death in the United States, automobile accidents are responsible for than 4 million medically consulted injuries every year. According to data collected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the most commonly reported crash-related injuries are whiplash, concussion, bone fractures, herniated discs, and internal bleeding.
Signs of Injuries from an Auto Accident
While some of these injuries will present themselves immediately, others may not manifest until days or weeks after an accident. If you’re experiencing headaches, vertigo, neck pain/stiffness, back pain, hearing loss, or sensory numbness, it could be an indicator of damage to your upper cervical spine. While mild crash-related injuries will often heal on their own, injuries to the neck or spine tend to lead to more serious health issues, sometimes leading to months or even years of pain and discomfort.
How the Upper Cervical Spine is Affected After an Auto Accident
Perhaps unsurprisingly, instances of misalignment in the upper cervical spine are particularly common amongst individuals who have previously experienced whiplash (or related trauma) in a motor vehicle accident. Left unaddressed, misalignment in the upper cervical vertebrae can impede communication between the brain, the spinal cord, and the nervous system. A long-term impedance in this region will increase an individual’s risk profile to a wide range of secondary health issues, including craniofacial abnormalities, chronic back pain, and vertigo-associated disorders. For this reason, if you’ve previously been involved in an automobile accident and are struggling with lingering pain or injury, we strongly recommend that you book a consultation with an upper cervical chiropractor.
How We Treat Auto Accident Injuries
Upper cervical chiropractic care is a natural, non-invasive alternative treatment option for persistent neck and/or spinal injuries from auto accidents. We are focused on removing interferences to normal body function to get to the root cause of the injuries caused during an auto accident. We do not just treat the symptoms. Our goal is to allow the body to heal from the underlying injuries and any related health problems.
To treat the source of your pain, we put together an individualized plan for locating and correcting any misalignments in your cervical spine. If a misalignment is detected, we take a Cone Beam Cat Scan (CBCT), which is less invasive than a X-Ray, to determine the precise angle and direction of the misaligned vertebra.
When an initial diagnosis is reached, we will be able to focus on gently and precisely realigning the affected spinal region. Rest assured, there will be no popping, twisting, or pulling on the neck during this process. We deliver a precise and gentle correction to restore the neck and spine to its normal position so that any interference can be removed and recovery from the auto accident can begin. The goal of the upper cervical care is alignment and stabilization. We track your progress to make sure your alignment stays in place and any injuries from the auto accident have been removed completely.
