Auto Accident Injury Q & A
What is an auto accident injury?
Auto accident injuries describe bodily damage that results from the impact of a car accident. Car accidents are unpredictable and can cause more injuries than you might expect.
Even if you don’t feel much pain immediately, you should still consider visiting Elite Spine and Health Center for a comprehensive evaluation soon after your accident.
Even minor car accident injuries can worsen without treatment and turn into long-term complications needing management. The team specializes in using evidence-based chiropractic therapies for soft tissue car accident injuries, including spinal manipulation, massage therapy, and joint realignment.
Treatments for auto accident injuries aim to reduce pain while restoring function to injured body parts. You might need to try more than one approach before finding the relief you need.
What are some of the most common accident injuries?
The team at Elite Spine and Health Center specializes in diagnosing and treating injuries that happen on impact in a car crash.
Whiplash injuries are especially common in auto accidents because the impact jolts your head forward and backward or side to side. These injuries affect the soft tissues of the neck, like muscles and ligaments.
Other common auto accident injuries are:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Bone fractures
- Strains and sprains
Many injuries in auto accidents cause pain, but not always immediately. That’s why it’s important to get an evaluation soon after a car accident even if you think you’re injury-free or have injuries that seem mild.
What are my treatment options for an auto accident injury?
There are numerous types of auto accident injuries that can lead to severe, irreversible damage without the right care.
The team at Elite Spine and Health Center is very thorough while evaluating you and uses imaging tests like X-rays and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans for detailed images of your bones and tissues.
After identifying and evaluating the damage, the team creates an individualized care plan to address your auto accident injury or injuries. It may involve:
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Nonsurgical spinal decompression
- Myofascial release
- Therapeutic ultrasound
- Intersegmental traction
- Physical therapy
- Behavior modifications
Depending on the extent of your injuries, the team might tell you to come in often for follow-ups on your care plan. They assess your healing and progress with simple tests in the office and can make adjustments to your care plan that might better suit your needs.
