Auto Accidents Injury FAQs
Auto accidents are notorious for causing muscle, joint, ligament, and tendon injuries. If you’re experiencing neck, shoulder, back, or leg pain due to an auto accident, contact our Cedar Falls and Waterloo auto injury chiropractor for pain relief. At Schofield Chiropractic, we’ve compiled these FAQs to provide answers to common questions people have concerning chiropractic care for car accident injuries.
Why should I see a chiropractor after an auto accident?
If you’re feeling muscle, joint, or ligament pain after an auto mishap, it could be due to a soft tissue or musculoskeletal injury. Chiropractic care specializes in treating these types of injuries. A diagnosis from our chiropractor can confirm your condition so you can get the treatment you need without delay.
What are some common symptoms of musculoskeletal injuries?
A musculoskeletal car accident injury may cause pain, inflammation, muscle or joint stiffness, tenderness, headaches, dizziness, loss of range of motion, and loss of mobility. Some people can’t sleep due to painful auto injuries.
What are some signs I may have whiplash?
Whiplash occurs when your head is thrust forward and back quickly and uncontrollably due to the impact of a rear end collision. This rapid forward-back motion can damage neck tissues or cause joints or bones to get out of alignment. Whiplash symptoms may range from neck pain and stiffness to reduced neck mobility, headaches, dizziness, trouble focusing, and difficulty sleeping.
What types of auto injuries do you treat?
Our Waterloo and Cedar Falls chiropractor has experience treating whiplash, dislocated bones and joints, muscle strains, ligament tears, shoulder injuries, back injuries, dashboard knee, and more. All our treatment plans are customized to suit our patient’s specific needs.
How does chiropractic treat musculoskeletal auto injuries?
Our treatment plans consist of natural, noninvasive chiropractic techniques and therapies with the goal of relieving pain and helping your body heal. Spinal adjustments help correct spinal misalignments caused by an accident to relieve pain and restore spinal function. Balancing your system helps soft tissues to heal quicker. Massage is used to relieve muscle pain, tension, and inflammation. It also circulates blood to injured areas to promote quicker healing. Our auto injury chiropractor may recommend rehab exercises to improve your range of motion, flexibility, and mobility as well.
What are the benefits of chiropractic care for an auto accident injury?
Chiropractic therapies are safe, noninvasive, and drug free. Chiropractic treats your pain at its source for long-term relief. Our treatments also help your body heal so you can fully recover from your injury.
