Auto Accidents Q & A

What are common injuries following an auto accident?

Many times, auto accidents can leave you with neck and back pain, whiplash injuries or soft tissue injuries. You can experience so much muscle pain and stiffness that it impedes with your day-to-day functions. This discomfort, on top of your other injuries, can be a serious issue.

How do you know if you are suffering from whiplash?

Whiplash symptoms can be complicated and difficult to diagnose. Some men and women experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away, including headaches, blurred vision, dizziness, reduced range-of-motion, shoulder pain, and arm pain.

Whiplash can also damage your spinal discs, cause minor back injuries, injure your muscles, and create ligament problems.

Some patients may think they're simply stiff or sore after an accident if they don't have any severe injuries right away. However, serious injuries might be developing.

Most patients assume that only high-speed accidents cause whiplash, but a change in speed of just 2 or 3 miles per hour during a crash can produce it.  

Why seek chiropractic care after an auto accident?

Chiropractic care views you as a whole individual, rather than just focusing on the body part giving you the most trouble. Serious health problems can develop in the future if your injuries go unnoticed or untreated.

It’s not uncommon to be ignorant of how a car accident injured you, only to later suffer discomfort or headaches several months later. Being proactive now about your health and receiving a chiropractic evaluation right away can benefit you later on.

Dr. Worley takes X-Rays to determine if you have severe injuries to your neck or spine. He can also perform chiropractic adjustments to help align your spine, which puts your body in the best position to heal and recover as quickly as possible.

Ouzts-Tinney Chiropractic & Spinal Rehabilitation can help relieve your pain, provide physical therapy exercises, and give you nutritional advice to accelerate the healing process.
