As a chiropractor located near Omaha at Chiropractic Wellness Center, I treat a number of car accident victims each year who suffer from back and spine injury. Auto accidents are always unexpected and can lead to a lot of worry causing the body extra stress. A victim of a car accident has a very high chance of experiencing a symptom called whiplash. Whiplash occurs due to the immediate pressure of your neck going forward or backwards and at times sideways while the impact of the other vehicle occurs. Chiropractic care can help correct a back and spine injury caused by an auto accident.
When an injury leads to severe pain after an auto accident I highly recommend seeking medical treatment immediately. This will make sure there is no serious damage that occurred to the cervical disc or lower vertebrae. This injury is usually caused by the jolting motion caused by the sudden stop from the accident. In Omaha, more and more physicians and chiropractors are working together to offer their patients pain relief options to the back and spine that do not include expensive surgery.
If medical treatment is not performed after an auto accident, injuries that are not addressed with proper rehabilitation and left untreated can lead to chronic pain within the back and spine for years after an auto accident. If the accident is not severe it is still recommended to seek medical attention with a family physician or chiropractor after the accident. I have performed several spinal manipulations and provided a chiropractic wellness program for auto accident patients to help relieve tension or stress and get their body back to 100%.
