Did you know that a car crash occurs once every 60 seconds in the United States? This puts you at risk of being the victim of a car crash at least once in your lifetime and sustaining a life-changing personal injury. Unfortunately, an auto accident injury can be difficult to recover from on your own. Without the help of a chiropractor, you might find yourself struggling with constant pain, balance issues, and no relief in sight.
At Heuser Chiropractic, we want to help our clients in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas get the help they need to recover from their auto accident injuries. Our chiropractors are here to help provide the best treatments to get to the root cause of your pain and provide natural and effective chiropractic care.
What Type of Auto Accident Injury Requires Treatment?
There are various types of auto accident injuries that can range from moderate to severe. Auto accident injuries can also increase your chances of experiencing re-injury, leading to acute or chronic pain. Some of the most common auto injuries we see include:
- Whiplash, which is caused by the jerking motion of the neck and can lead to neck, back, and shoulder pain in addition to headaches
- Headaches and migraines
- Shoulder pain
- Sore muscles
- Dislocated bones
- Muscle strain or sprains
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Your chiropractor will determine how to best treat your injury by assessing the extent of your injury and providing the best chiropractic treatment possible. We will start with a physical assessment, conducting tests, and may require imaging tests to determine if there are other causes of your pain.
From there, we can create a personalized treatment plan using therapies and techniques like:
- Massage therapy to sooth sore muscles and decrease inflammation
- Trigger point therapy to alleviate tense muscles and allow the muscles to relax
- Manual adjustments of the spine to help re-align the spine following an accident
- Muscle stretches and exercises to increase strength in injured muscles, improve mobility and improve flexibility
Our chiropractors will also conduct follow-up assessments to ensure you are receiving the best possible care throughout your recovery.
