Treating Auto Accident Injuries
The most common auto accident injury is whiplash, but there are many other serious health problems that you could experience after a car accident. Many of these injuries can be treated by a chiropractor. Chiropractic care provides effective pain relief and supports the recovery process. At Aloha Wellness in North Central San Antonio, our chiropractor will locate the source of your pain and develop an individualized treatment plan to heal your auto accident injury.
Types of Auto Accident Injuries
There are several different types of injuries you could sustain after an auto accident. Some of these injuries may be obvious, while others might not show symptoms for weeks or even months after the accident. An auto accident injury such as a concussion or chronic headaches may not appear right away.
Whiplash is the most reported injury after a car accident. This injury occurs after the body is jerked in one direction and then suddenly in another during a collision. This injury will cause problems in the ligaments of the neck and back.
Additional problems you might experience from these injuries are strains or pain in the neck, neurological problems, and chronic headaches. We can help you work through all of these injuries and encourage the recovery process. We will discuss your symptoms and implement a treatment plan as needed.
The Symptoms of Whiplash and Auto Accident Injuries
The most common symptom of whiplash is neck pain. This injury and others may have other symptoms that may show up after the accident. These symptoms include:
• Neck stiffness or pain
• Vision problems
• Dizzy spells
• Back pain
• Shoulder problems
• Limb pain
