Common Auto Accident Injuries Evaluated by our Chiropractor in West Jordan

Auto accident injuries can be minor or severe, immediate or delayed. Because of a surge in stress hormones during trauma (which can incidentally mask or cause you to "ignore" pain), it can day days, weeks, or sometimes months to to notice symptoms of a problem, including stiffness, pain, swelling, numbness, tingling, insomnia, joint instability, headaches, jaw pain, mood dysfunction, and more. 

The following conditions are a few of the most common ones we see involving car accident victims (including people involved in accidents at no more than 5 to 10 miles per hour!): 

  • Whiplash
  • Disc herniations
  • Muscle strains, tendon tears, and ligament sprains
  • Shoulder pain (brachial plexus injury, rotator cuff strains, often as a result of a seatbelt/restraint injury)
  • Knee pain (dashboard knee/impact injury)
  • Back pain and joint subluxations
  • Nerve impingement

How Our West Jordan and Salt Lake City Chiropractor Can Treat Your Car Accident Injury

Treating a car accident injury generally starts with a thorough assessment of the spinal alignment and anatomy. Overlying muscle tension and spasms are often a result of protective reflexive guarding, so by realigning the spine through a chiropractic adjustment (including gentle non-thrust adjustments) we can accelerate and optimize healing from the get-go.

Other main goals for healing auto accident injuries is to control inflammation, relieve pain, decrease pressure on and promote healing of discs and nerves, promote increased circulation, reduce swelling, improve psychological health, and restore normal mobility, strength, and function of affected connective tissues. We do this through a variety of drug-free techniques including massage therapy, non-surgical spinal decompression, and aromatherapy. 

Don't have any signs or symptoms of a car accident injury and think you feel fine? We still encourage you to come in, since hidden inflammation and tissue damage could be ongoing unabated and devolve into a significant issue if treatment is delayed.
