Learn how our West Knoxville Auto Accident Chiropractor can help you find fast relief from auto accident injuries and prevent long-term negative outcomes.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
Auto accidents have many common injuries, including some minor injuries that should be treated. Even if you are wearing a seat-belt, you could experience these injuries due to the restraint mechanism of the seat-belt. Likewise, even if the crash occurs at low speeds, you could wind up hurt due to the force of the impact. Do not assume that you are fine after an auto accident. Always get checked out by our West Knoxville Auto Accident Chiropractor, who is a musculoskeletal doctor trained to spot and treat these common auto accident injuries:
- Broken bones
- Knee pain ("dashboard knee")
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Pulled muscles especially in the legs, arms, and back
- Headaches & migraines
- Bruises and lacerations
Do not make the mistake of delaying treatment or staying at home to rest and ice your sore muscles. The faster you seek chiropractic care to address auto accident injuries, the faster your entire body will recover. If you are serious about getting well and avoiding illness, this is the way!
What to Expect With Car Accident Injury Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic treatment of auto accident injury focuses on natural wellness care. To encourage healing actively, we make adjustments to your spine. These adjustments relieve inflammation and pain while soothing the nervous system, which is your body's self-healing system. You can expect a decrease in muscle stiffness and soreness and an increase in mobility as your nervous system promotes recovery from sprains and strains received during the crash.
At West Knoxville Chiropractic, we use several modes of chiropractic to bring about healing. We may try the Thompson technique, which lets us adjust the table to best access injured tissue. The Pettibon technique lets us strengthen your back muscles, so we can stabilize your spine. Diversified technique features high-speed adjustments for postural problems caused by the impact. The Gonstead technique is best for precise adjustments targeting inflammation, so it is a common method for healing auto accident injuries. Finally, we may try the activator method for minute adjustments that greatly relieve neck pain.
