Chiropractic Treatment in Seattle for Auto Accident Injury

auto-accident_med_(2)Auto accidents occur every day in Seattle — a city where many residents rely on cars for daily transportation. Most people involved in collisions do not suffer a life-threatening auto accident injury, but many do suffer long term musculoskeletal pain and symptoms. Some of the most common injuries that accident victims suffer from are those that cause back pain and neck pain, though other symptoms like headaches and muscle stiffness may also be present.

Back pain usually occurs after an accident that causes vertebral fractures, spinal subluxations, or issues with disc herniation. Back pain often occurs in the upper or lower back, but may also radiate into the body’s extremities. Similarly, neck pain can occur due to the abrupt impact of a collision. The delicate structures of the neck are easily injured, causing a condition known as whiplash. The symptoms of whiplash, which include stiffness, limited motion range and pain, often do not appear for several days following an accident.

Seattle Chiropractor Treats Whiplash, Back and Neck Pain

Early treatment is important for auto accident injury victims, who often wait until symptoms become severe before pursuing chiropractic care. By consulting with a chiropractor at the first sign of injury, pain can be isolated and minimized before is worsens or spreads. In fact, patients who visit the chiropractor following an auto accident are more likely to avoid lifelong back and neck pain or the complications of whiplash.

Here at Optimal Health Spine + Wellness Clinic, we help auto accident victims heal and recover using a combination of treatments, including massage therapy, chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy. Although the recovery period may take many weeks or months, many patients are able to restore motion range and mobility, as well as minimize or eliminate musculoskeletal pain caused by a collision.
