Auto accident injury patients can find relief for their back pain, neck pain, and headaches at Ollis Chiropractic. Personal injury is a common aliment that can be successfully treated auto accident injury through chiropractic techniques. Treatments such as spinal adjustments, muscle specific stretching, corrective exercises, and massage therapy will help our patients with pain management and healing.
Whiplash is probably the most common auto accident injury, affecting the neck and back. It occurs when the neck is jerked or "whipped" back and forth or side to side, stretching the muscles, tendons, and tissues past their normal range of motion. This serious injury should be treated right away. If you are involved in a car accident, you should see our Dr. Ollis immediately after the accident for a full examination, even if you are not feeling pain. Whiplash pain may take days, weeks or even months to show up, but the damage is done during the actual accident. If you do not follow up with treatment then the damage can become more severe making it harder to treat and correct.
Slipped or herniated discs are some other injuries that may be caused by an automobile accident. Lower back pain can mean that your disc has become displaced and is out of chiropractic physiotherapy alignment. If you suffer from a herniated disc, it is common for back pain to be present in the area of the herniation, while radiating though the hip and buttocks area. This injury can be treated with chiropractic care, stretching exercises, muscle specific massage and in some cases spinal decompression.
Headaches are another result of an auto accident injury. A headache can accompany a whiplash personal injury or be the result of stress in the neck and back. Tension headaches can be relieved with chiropractic adjustments to the upper two cervical vertebrae or using other techniques such as massage therapy which is available in our office as service that complements chiropractic care.
