Salt Lake City Auto Accident Chiropractor
Injuries are not always obvious, and some people find pain several days following a car accident. Car accidents occur every minute according to the National Highway Traffic Administration. Many patients dealing with injuries related to auto accidents find pain relief from chiropractic treatment. Therapy is designed based on the injuries and the patient’s needs. At Life Health Medical Center, we specialize in non-surgical treatments designed to restore motion, reduce inflammation, and improve range of motion.
Auto Accident Injuries
Any type of auto accident will shock the body. In many situations, a simple fender bender can lead to whiplash, causing severe neck, shoulder and back pain. However, there are less common injuries that occur that do require proper treatment and correct modalities to repair. Common car accident injuries include:
- Head and neck strain and pain
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Blurred vision
- Herniated disc
- Knee pain
- Difficulty walking
When Should You Visit a Doctor After An Auto Accident?
Seeking medical attention after a car accident is very important even if the patient suffers minor injuries. Auto accidents provide stressful situations which increases adrenaline in those involved. Adrenaline can mask potential injuries caused by the accident, making the injury unnoticeable for days or weeks. This is why it is crucial to get medical attention immediately after the accident to ensure the patient doesn’t suffer additional injuries in the following days unaware of the condition. If a patient does not seek a doctor and have an injury to their back or neck, they risk making it worse and potentially paralyzing themselves all because they didn’t know they were injured. Depending on the patient’s condition, scans may need to be done for the doctors to gain a full understanding of the injuries.
Auto Accident Injuries Chiropractic Treatment
Life Health Medical Center specializes in chiropractic treatment for auto accidents. Our experts have years of experience treating car injuries. We focus on helping our clients understand the injury, and create custom patient treatment plans designed to improve your quality of life. We have seen patients come in from all over the Salt Lake Valley dealing with long-term pain due to a car accident. We are here to help find a solution to reduce pain and help you get back to enjoying your life.
We often find patients come in with lingering pain and inflammation. Micro-tears in the ligaments and muscles can lead to long-term pain. Unlike a broken bone, a micro-tear cannot be seen on an X-ray. Our experts use spinal manipulation to help realign the body and begin restoring it to its natural state of being.
Car Accident Injury Surgery?
If you have been recommended to have surgery following a car accident, contact our office. Some patients do find success through correct modalities and spinal manipulation techniques we use and find that it helps to strengthen the muscle, helping to reduce the risk of surgery. Others find treatment prior to surgery helps to reduce the healing time, and the body is able to feel stronger quicker.
Our goal is to help heal your body, not mask it with medications. We focus on long-term pain relief by restoring motion, reducing inflammation, and improving your body without the use of drugs. Let us help you tap into your body’s natural healing ability through correct chiropractic treatments.
