Automobile accidents often leave lasting damage throughout the joints, bones and soft tissues in your body. Even after recovering from the acute symptoms of an auto accident injury, you may still struggle to cope with lingering pain, numbness, tingling or other sources of discomfort. You can resolve these troubling sensations by seeking care from a car accident chiropractor. Chiropractors can resolve the following injuries and more.
Harsh impacts can knock the skeletal system out of alignment, causing extreme pain and discomfort with every movement. When the skeleton is not aligned properly, even sitting completely still can cause you an enormous amount of pain. Chiropractors can manually maneuver your bones back into position to restore alignment and eliminate pain. Ongoing therapeutic exercises help your soft tissues gain strength to retain the adjusted skeletal positioning for life.
The abrupt forces of a car accident often leave nerve fibers trapped between bones or within joint material. The compressed nerves may cause pain, tingling and numbness to shoot through the body. The discomfort often comes and goes with movement, swelling or other complicating factors. Through the use of adjustments, massage and exercises, your chiropractor can release trapped nerves to end the discomfort once and for all.
Muscles damaged in the car accident impact may continually pull out of place as you compensate for pain caused by skeletal misalignments and pinched nerves. Chiropractors can restore the proper function and position of your anatomy to remove excess stress and strain on your muscles. At that point, muscle fibers can begin healing with the threat of reinjury occurring with every movement.
