Auto Accident Injury
Over 2 million people may become injured or disabled in auto accidents each year.
With the international nightlife, which brings tourist drivers from across the country and around the world, Las Vegas sees more than its share of traffic incidents. Often, victims walk away from these accidents feeling fine but start suffering headaches, neck pain, and back pain, a few hours to even days later. This is why it is important to visit with our chiropractic physicians as soon as possible after an accident. We may diagnose the extent of a car accident injury before the pain begins, and provide treatment that may reduce the amount of time spent in recovery.
The most common injuries associated with auto accidents are sprains and strains of spinal muscles and ligaments, but the pain is often delayed. Symptoms can be diverse and complex and may include:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Arm pain with numbness and/or tingling
- Leg pain with numbness and/or tingling
- Extremity injury/pain
The forces that occur in a car accident usually whip the neck vertebrae out of correct alignment (hence the term “whiplash”) because it is the most vulnerable area of the spine. However, other areas of the spine may also be affected. Our experienced team of chiropractic physicians may use gentle, precise spinal adjustments to correct your posture, which may immediately free up any pinched nerves. This usually leads to pain relief.
While we use chiropractic adjustments to correct spinal alignment, we apply a full range of physiotherapy [Nevada clinics]/physical medicine modalities and therapeutic procedures (PMMTP) [Arizona clinics] techniques and complementary treatments designed to accelerate and enhance your car accident recovery. Whatever the injury, our chiropractors will map out an individualized treatment plan for pain relief and recovery.
