Auto accidents can cause diverse injuries, some of which may not be so obvious at the time. A week later, however, you may start experiencing the pain of whiplash or other musculoskeletal injury due to the sudden impact of your crash. At Westside Chiropractic Center, we specialize in treating musculoskeletal injuries caused by auto accidents, slip and falls, sports injuries, or work mishaps. If you’ve recently sustained an auto accident injury in Sunrise or the Miami, FL, area, contact Dr. Lisa Owen for a diagnosis of your condition to see if you’re a candidate for chiropractic treatment.
Risks of Auto Accidents
Auto accidents put you at risk for all kinds of injuries ranging from broken bones to spinal misalignments. Depending on the severity of your accident, you could experience whiplash, a dislocated shoulder, muscle strains, misaligned bones and joints, and more. The force of an auto crash can knock your spine out of balance, causing bones and joints to compress spinal nerves. Compressed nerves can shoot pain into your neck, back, and shoulders. Even a mild, rear-end accident can have repercussions on your skeletal system, resulting in discomfort and pain.
Auto Injuries That Can Be Treated by Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care can help treat a wide range of auto accident injuries to include:
- Misalignments in your spine
- Herniated disc
- Neck and back pain
- Soft tissue injuries and more
These injuries can trigger headaches, body pain, stiffness, soreness, dizziness, insomnia, tingling in hands and feet, and anxiety. You may experience limited range of motion and mobility due to painful injuries. Pain from an auto accident can affect your work, sleep, and ability to care for your family.
A visit to Dr. Lisa Owen, our Sunrise Downtown Miami FL chiropractor, will help you get an accurate diagnosis of your condition to see if you’re a candidate for chiropractic treatment. We’ll review your medical history, evaluate your injury, provide a complete orthopedic and neurological examination and create a treatment plan to alleviate pain and promote healing.
