At Renton Center Chiropractic & Massage Therapy, we have been providing residents of Renton, WA with natural and effective auto injury treatment for many years. Our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the extent of your auto injuries before creating a chiropractic care plan to address them. Following are the answers to some questions our chiropractor frequently receives regarding auto accident injury treatment.
Do I Still Need to See a Chiropractor after Being Examined at the Emergency Room?
Yes, especially if you complained of neck pain at the emergency room. The impact from your crash likely caused the vertebrae of your neck and back to slip out of alignment. Emergency room personnel aren't going to realign your vertebrae. Rather, they will provide you with prescription medication to mask the pain caused by this misalignment.
Our chiropractor will address the source of your pain and discomfort as opposed to its symptoms. Gentle chiropractic adjustments can realign your affected vertebrae, thereby reducing your pain, restoring your range of motion, and enhancing your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
What Are the Symptoms of Whiplash?
Whiplash is a neck injury that frequently occurs due to auto accidents. Whiplash symptoms include headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, neck pain, and shoulder stiffness. Pain might even travel down an arm and into the hand into the fingers.
What are Spinal Adjustments?
Spinal adjustments are performed by our chiropractor to restore your body’s natural alignment. Returning your spine to its natural position will reduce your pain, improve your mobility, and improve your body’s function in general. Spinal adjustments are an attractive option for auto injury treatment because they do not involve prescription medication or invasive surgery.
When should I Seek Chiropractic Care?
Even if you're only experiencing minor pain or discomfort, you should make an appointment with our chiropractor as soon as possible after an auto accident. Leaving a whiplash injury untreated can result in serious complications in the future including chronic neck pain, a reduced range of motion, headaches, and dizziness.
