Auto Accident Injury
Has an auto accident injury left you struggling with acute or chronic back and neck pain? Our Beverly Hills auto accident injury treatments can help. Our chiropractor integrates chiropractic care with physiotherapy treatments to provide immediate pain relief and support the body’s natural healing process. From whiplash injuries to back pain, our chiropractor has years of experience treating common injuries and helping patients heal.
Beverly Hills auto accident injury patients choose our practice because our treatments provide immediate pain relief without the need for prescription painkillers. Chiropractic adjustments are effective because they address the underlying cause for pain, rather than simply masking pain symptoms with drugs. By addressing the underlying cause for pain through chiropractic care, we provide immediate pain relief while also reducing the risk for scar tissue.
In order to understand why our auto accident injury treatments are so effective, it is helpful to have a clear understanding of what occurs during an accident. For example, during a whiplash injury, the force of an accident’s impact will “whip” the neck backwards and forwards. This whipping action causes the lower cervical vertebra (lower neck) to hyperextend and the upper cervical vertebra (upper neck) to hyperflex. This combination of hyperextension and hyperflexion results in an abnormal S-shape in the cervical spine, which places pressure on nearby nerves and strains the soft connective tissues in the musculoskeletal system. As long as this misalignment persists, auto injury victims will continue to suffer from acute pain. In fact, without proper treatment, this pain may become chronic – leading to months or even years of recurring migraines, headaches, back pain and neck pain.
Symptoms of common auto accident injuries, such as whiplash or a herniated disc, include acute pain, recurring headaches, insomnia or sleep disturbances, and difficulty concentrating on tasks. Additionally, patients may suffer radiating pain in the outer limbs due to nerve damage. Other patients with severe whiplash trauma may suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain as well as ringing in the ears and general weakness.
Our chiropractor begins treatment by using X-rays and other diagnostic tools to precisely identify the cause for your pain. Once we have located a spinal subluxation or abnormal spinal curve, we will create a custom treatment program to correct this misalignment. Depending on your injury, you may also be experiencing a restricted range of motion. We may recommend physiotherapy exercises in conjunction with chiropractic care. These exercises are designed to restore a full range of motion to the body, so you can once again turn your head from side to side without experiencing radiating or sharp pains.
If you suffer from pain, it is important to seek chiropractic treatment as quickly as possible. The earlier our chiropractor is able to diagnose your auto accident injury, the more we are able to do to support the body’s healing process and immediately relieve pain through patient-proven, evidenced-based treatments.
