Automobile accidents happen every few minutes, fortunately, most are simple fender benders. However, many auto accidents that happen in Charleston can result in serious injuries, even life-threatening injuries. Unfortunately, it is common for many people to sustain an auto accident injury and not be aware of their injuries until a few days, even a few weeks after the accident. For example, one of the most common types of injury sustain from an auto accident is whiplash, which may result in symptoms that are often mistaken as simply being minor aches and pains, such as a headache or back pain. Whiplash, neck injuries and back injuries can seem mild at first, but they can progress into debilitating injuries, so it is essential that you visit a chiropractor in Charleston as soon as possible following an auto accident.
Common Automobile Accident Injuries in Charleston
It is essential that you seek chiropractic care as soon as possible following an auto accident. Some of the most common auto accident injuries may include:
Neck injuries - Whiplash is the most common occurring injury following an auto accident. Whiplash is usually sustained when you are in a rear-end collision and it can happen regardless of how fast or slow you are going when the accident occurs. Unfortunately, whiplash is also one of the types of injuries that may take several days for the symptoms to appear. Symptoms may include headache, pain and stiffness in your neck, back and shoulders and numbness in your back, shoulders and arms. The pain of whiplash can significantly worsen in the days following the accident. If you suspect you may have whiplash, it is essential that you seek chiropractor treatment as soon as possible, because without treatment a neck injury can result in permanent damage.
Back and spinal injuries - These types of injuries can include a wide range of damages, such as fractured vertebrae, strains and sprains and/or a herniated disc. Injuries to your back and spine can be a serious issue and may result in chronic back pain, paralysis and possibly even death. Working with a chiropractor in Charleston can help to manage the pain and reduce the risk of lasting damage.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help With Auto Injuries?
If you sustain an auto accident injury to your neck, back or spine, the first thing your chiropractor will do is get a complete medical history, followed by various tests, such as X-rays and/or an MRI. This will help the chiropractor to see the extent of the injury as well as determine the best form of treatment for your specific injuries. Chiropractic treatment may include spinal decompression, massage, physical therapy and regular exercises that you can do at home; all of which will help to speed the healing process and reduce or prevent the risk of future problems.
It is important to keep in mind that although you may think you are fine following an auto accident, there are serious injuries that can occur that don’t show up right away. So, it is essential that you seek chiropractic care to start the recovery process as soon as possible following your accident. The sooner you make an appointment, the sooner you will know the extent of your injuries and what treatments are available to help you start the healing process.
