A car accident can happen at any time. Accidents occur in the summer, fall, winter and spring for Castle Rock residents and we invite you to call Campbell Chiropractic immediately after your accident. Our Castle Rock chiropractor evaluates your body to determine if you have an injury. Your pain may not appear instantly, but the sooner you receive chiropractic care after an auto accident, the less chance your pain will last. The pain you do feel, you may not associate with the accident. For instance, if your shoulder begins to hurt, you may not realize it was the result of your shoulder being thrown against a tight seatbelt. If your neck hurts, you may wave it away thinking that you slept wrong, but you may be experiencing a symptom of whiplash from your head moving forward and backward quickly. Our chiropractor helps identify these small symptoms to determine the cause of the pain. Then, we set up a chiropractic care program to rid you of the pain and improve your healing time.
Hopefully, this is your first and last auto accident. Similar to every other first, you may not be aware of the injuries that can happen from a car accident. Some common auto accident injuries to be mindful of include:
Whiplash- symptoms are pain in your neck and upper back, dizziness, blurry vision, fatigue and irritability
Herniated disc- back pain is the biggest symptom that a disc between the vertebrae has shifted out of place. You may also feel weakness or numbness in your arms or legs.
Shoulder dislocation- depending on the impact during the accident, your shoulder pain may be from a dislocated joint. Our chiropractor repositions your shoulder to restore your mobility and lessen your pain.
Chest trauma- a seatbelt, air bar or steering wheel may bring trauma to your chest. Our chiropractor is able to position your ribs into a better alignment and show you exercises to stretch your chest muscles and help your body heal.
Chiropractic care following a car accident injury is essential to speed your recovery time. Call us today at %CLIENT_PHONE% to schedule your appointment.
