Auto Accident Treatment from Our Chiropractic Staff in Greensburg and Export, PA
We all make honest efforts to be safe drivers by wearing our seat belts, following traffic laws, or not driving distracted, but when a car accident happens, the physical and mental strain can be overwhelming. Our chiropractic team in Greensburg and Export, PA, can help you heal from an auto accident injury as soon as possible.
Common Injuries Following an Auto Accident
When you're in a moving car, a sudden stop or change in direction, such as during a fender bender or T-bone collision, can impose a lot of damaging force on the body and lead to an auto accident injury, such as:
- TMJ dysfunction
- Concussion and post-concussion syndrome
- Shoulder injury, including rotator cuff strain, brachial plexus injury, or dislocation
- Back and pelvic pain, often due to disc herniation, vertebral joint subluxation, sacroiliac misalignment, or spinal bone fracture
- Nerve compression in the spine or an extremity
- Bruising and direct blunt trauma to muscles, fascia, and soft tissue, especially on the knee or lower leg due to impact against the dashboard
Pain, swelling, redness, tenderness, headaches, jaw pain, ringing in the ears, and even trouble sleeping are all possible following an auto accident. It's normal to notice these issues right away, or within the first day or two after your accident. There are some instances where you may feel "fine" after your accident, but notice pain and dysfunction a couple of weeks or even months later. This delayed onset of symptoms can occur when pain-masking stress hormones which elevated during your accident take a long time to return to baseline.
The takeaway? See a chiropractor as soon as you can after an auto accident, even if you think nothing's wrong!
