Auto Accident Injury Treatment from Our Chiropractor in Greensburg and Dodge City, KS
It's not uncommon to be involved in an auto accident, whether it’s a minor fender bender, a major collision, or a crash caused by inclement weather. Thousands of people experience accidents on the road every day, and many of these individuals end up dealing with acute or chronic pain and dysfunction afterwards. At Grove Chiropractic and Sports Injury, our Dodge City chiropractor has the holistic tools and techniques you've been looking for that will empower you with natural pain relief in as little as one session.
Common Types of Auto Accident Injury
Whiplash is one of the most common types of auto accident injury. It occurs when the head and neck forcefully bend forward and backward due to sudden acceleration or deceleration forces, which are common in car accidents. Even crashes involving speeds as little as 10 miles per hour can produce enough force to strain the tissues in the neck, leading to whiplash symptoms like neck pain and stiffness, headaches, jaw pain, ringing in the ears, shoulder and upper back pain, insomnia, and arm numbness and tingling.
Other common types of auto accident injuries include:
- Low back pain
- Muscle strains
- Disc herniation or disc bulge
- Spinal nerve impingement, such as radiculopathy or sciatica
- Shoulder or hip pain/dislocation
How Our Chiropractor Can Help Heal Your Auto Accident Injury
Did you know that signs and symptoms of an auto accident injury often don't show up until hours, days, or sometimes weeks after the accident? This is because stress hormones surge during the accident and block pain and other symptoms of tissue damage. For this reason, we encourage anyone who's been in an auto accident to contact our Greensburg and Grove City chiropractor right away. Dr. Grove can provide diagnostic and therapeutic services that can improve spinal alignment, relieve inflammation, and prevent worsening tissue damage even before symptoms show up or get worse.
Specific services our chiropractor uses for auto accident injury include:
- Chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue mobilization
- Individually prescribed corrective exercises for pain relief, tissue healing, reduced spasms, and more
- Lifestyle counseling, including stress management and coping skills
- Nutritional counseling, to ensure your body has the nutrients it needs for optimal injury recovery
Chiropractic care has also been shown to help address other underlying issues such as poor posture and body mechanics, impaired range of motion, and aberrant movement or motor patterns which would otherwise delay or impair healing if left unaddressed.
