Car Accident Injuries Carlsbad– Chiropractic Care Can Relieve the Pain
A car accident injury is one of the most stressful things we can go through, from damages to our body to damages to our property. To make matters more complicated, insurance companies are usually involved and potentially deny claims making legal representation necessary.
The chiropractic care at New Wave Chiropractic in Carlsbad will not only help to get your body put back together, but will also help advise on many of the other questions such as should I use Medpay? Should I contact a personal injury attorney? Should I speak with the opposing party’s insurance company? Having a knowledgeable professional on your side to navigate through the questions can make the experience smooth, easy, and much less painful. Our chiropractors have helped hundreds of car accident patients get their bodies healthy with minimal stress.
Whiplash Injury, Headaches / Migraine, & Neck Pain
Whiplash injury is one of the most common car accident results we see, with symptoms that range from neck pain to headaches and migraines. The injury occurs when the head is suddenly thrust from a traumatic force. This typically results to damage to the ligaments, muscles, and other tissues in the neck area. A complicating factor with car accident injuries is the amount of time it often takes to show up. You may feel absolutely fine following a car accident even if neck damage has been done. Symptoms can take weeks to arise, by which time further damage may have occurred. This can lead to more severe neck pain, upper back pain and potentially permanent damage to the area.
Back Injury, Sciatica, Car Accident Injury Carlsbad
Back injuries are another common result of a car accident injury. The back muscles, ligaments and other tissues can become sprained, leading to mild or excruciating back pain. A car accident can also cause a ruptured or herniated disc and severe pressure on the nerves that run through the spine. Pressure on the sciatic nerve can lead to sciatica, which can result in back pain as well as pain that runs through the buttocks and legs. A herniated disc can cause back pain in the upper or lower back, depending on the location of the disc. Symptoms can take weeks or months to show up and a delay in treatment can lead to more serious damage. One of the first priorities following a car accident should be a chiropractic evaluation.
Our Carlsbad chiropractors Dr. Paul Hodgson and Dr. Joe Botkin can perform an evaluation to determine if any underlying injuries have occurred.
This should be done even if no symptoms are immediately present. We can then tailor a specific car accident injury treatment plan to correct any damage at its earliest stages before it can develop into more severe complications.
