Auto Accident Injury Treatment FAQs

Auto Accident Injury Treatment FAQs

Auto accidents can cause painful injuries, both seen and unseen. Soft tissue injuries like muscle strains, torn ligaments, and misaligned joints can disrupt your life, even if they’re not so obvious at the time. These FAQs from Spinal Health and Rehab Integrative Medicine, serving residents in North Fort Myers, Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, Arcadia, North Port and Cape Coral, explain more about auto injuries and chiropractic treatment.

Why should I see a chiropractor after an auto accident?

Chiropractors specialize in treating soft tissue injuries caused by auto mishaps. Whiplash is a prime example of such an injury. By seeing our North Fort Myers chiropractor shortly after your accident, you can get an accurate diagnosis of any injury you may have. Chiropractic care can replace prescription drugs for managing the symptoms of painful soft tissue injuries.

What if I don’t have any symptoms? 

Sometimes, auto injury symptoms are delayed due to shock. Several days or weeks later, however, you may start to feel the pain and discomfort of a soft tissue injury. Pain pills may mask your symptoms temporarily, but chiropractic care treats your pain and the source of your pain for long term relief.

What kind of injuries can auto accidents cause?

Even if you wear a seat belt, you’re still susceptible to getting a musculoskeletal auto accident injury. In addition to whiplash, you may suffer from muscle strains, torn ligaments, herniated disc, misaligned bones and joints, shoulder or back pain, dashboard knee or other soft tissue injuries. You may experience pain, inflammation, headaches, loss of body function, muscle spasms and stiffness as a result of these injuries.

How does chiropractic care treat auto injuries? 

Chiropractic treatments generally consist of natural therapies like adjustments, spinal decompression, massage, hot/cold treatments, stretches, and rehab exercises with the goal of relieving pain, restoring mobility, and expediting healing of your auto injury.
