Many of our patients report that the symptoms of injuries that they have from a car accident took a couple of days to appear. Western Trails encourages you to see your chiropractor after car accident even if you think that you are okay. Neck and other soft tissue injuries, including whiplash, can take up to a few days for you to feel any pain and discomfort. While you may think that you are free of injury, if you do have whiplash that goes untreated the condition can worsen. We strongly recommend that you receive medical attention following any auto accident, no matter how severe.
Western Trails Chiropractic is Your Auto Injury Chiropractor Serving the Greater Scottsbluff and Mitchell Areas
When you have a soft tissue injury such as whiplash, chiropractic care can be an effective course of treatment. As your auto injury chiropractor, we have a lot of experience with treating whiplash and helping to relieve your pain and discomfort in a safe, effective, and drug-free manner. When you are in a vehicular accident your spine, neck, and shoulders can become misaligned. We can give you a comprehensive diagnostic exam to determine the extent of your injuries and exactly where your spine is affected.
When your spine is in alignment it allows blood and oxygen to flow freely through the joints and ligaments that support the soft tissue areas of the body. We can also work with you to create a regimen of exercises and stretches that can help to prevent re-injury while your whiplash is healing. Injuries to the soft tissue areas of the body can be difficult to heal completely and many patients report that they experience lingering pain prior to coming to us for treatment. Chiropractic care is holistic in nature and will treat the root cause of your symptoms rather than cover them up.
Effective treatment of whiplash includes treatment methods such as:
- Chiropractic spine realignment
- Therapeutic massage therapy
- Lifestyle and nutrition counseling
- Ergonomic alignment in your workspace
If you have been involved in an accident, do not delay. It is important that injuries such as whiplash are treated right away in order to avoid further injury than the initial condition.
