Understanding Auto Accident Injury in Benton & Little Rock
Unfortunately, even a low-speed collision can lead to potentially serious auto accident injury in Benton and Little Rock. Whiplash is the most common injury car accident patients suffer from, with symptoms ranging from back and neck pain to debilitating stiffness, numbness and tingling, and even nausea and vomiting (depending on the severity). A whiplash injury occurs when the ligaments, tendons, and muscles surrounding the cervical (upper) spine are damaged on impact. This usually occurs when the body is thrown violently forward at the time of the collision.
Another common back pain injury we see as a result of an auto accident is that of herniated or bulging discs. This occurs when the fluid-filled discs found between each spinal vertebrae become dislodged or compressed due to impact from an auto accident. When this occurs, patients may suffer from a sharp, shooting pain that is localized along the spine.
How Chiropractic Care and Treatment Can Help You Find Relief
Are you experiencing symptoms of a spinal injury following your auto accident? If so, then our team may be able to help. There are many benefits to choosing chiropractic care as part of your treatment and recovery. For starters, chiropractic therapies are drug-free and non-invasive, so you don't have to worry about the risks and side effects that come along with surgeries, painkiller medications, and other invasive treatment procedures. Furthermore, chiropractic therapies focus on treating your symptoms at the source for immediate and long-term relief.
We offer a number of treatments for auto accident injuries in our office, including chiropractic adjustment. This manual manipulation of the spine by our chiropractor focuses on restoring the alignment of the spine, thus reducing pressure on nerves and promoting faster healing. This treatment is especially effective in treating whiplash symptoms when combined with massage therapy.
For herniated and bulging discs, a combination of spinal adjustment and spinal decompression therapy may be recommended. This helps to create negative pressure along the spinal column, thus allowing the space needed for herniated and bulging discs to return to their proper positions.
