Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries
If you have been in a car accident, you may need help managing your body's pain and damage. It is essential to seek treatment after an accident, so your pain and discomfort do not worsen. Visiting our team can alleviate back and spinal injuries associated with your accident. Do not put your health at risk. Contact us at Garcia Chiropractic Clinic in San Antonio after your auto accident, so we can conduct a physical exam and appropriately treat your injury as soon as possible.
A common injury from a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash is a condition caused by forces violently whipping the head back and forth. The severity of whiplash depends on other vehicles' angle and speed when they hit your car. Our whiplash traumatology provides patients with quality relief from pain and discomfort.
Head and Back Pain Injuries
Head injuries are also expected to form from a collision. Injuries to the cervical spine often do not show up until days or weeks after the accident. Patients often walk away from accidents without realizing the severity of their injury until the pain is immense. Even if you think you are fine post-collision, it is important to still get checked by our team.
If you are experiencing back or neck pain, see our chiropractor as soon as possible to receive natural treatment. Injuries to your spine may include a herniated disc or damage to your spinal cord. When you injure your spine, you may feel numbness, tingling, or weakness in your limbs and other areas of the body. We can order X-rays or MRIs to assess and better understand your injured spine. After an accident, our quality care can alleviate pain and speed up the healing process.
How We Can Help
Chiropractic care consists of many non-invasive therapies and treatments, including spinal decompression. It consists of having you lay on a specialized table and connecting you to a machine that will simultaneously facilitate your back to move in two different directions. As a result, the discs in your back gradually separate from one another. The separation allows blood to properly flow through the area, promoting a natural healing process within the discs.
We can also prescribe stretching exercises to reduce muscle stiffness, abate pain, and improve mobility. We may recommend hot presses, cold presses, or a combination of both. Our chiropractic care helps patients relieve pain, restore full range of motion, reduce inflammation and swelling, diagnose and treat hidden injuries, and hasten recovery.
