Auto Injury Treatment

Recover From Car Accidents Injuries with Care from our Chiropractor in Winston-Salem

When you are in an auto accident, it is very easy to suffer a debilitating personal injury. This situation can be harrowing and can take you out of commission for an extended period. Our Winston-Salem chiropractors at Stoetzel Chiropractic Clinic can help manage auto accident injuries such as whiplash, back pain, and even lower back pain with chiropractic care.

Common Types of Auto Accident Injury Types 

Personal injury after a car accident can vary in many ways. Understanding the various injury types can help you and your chiropractor decide what treatment is necessary. Aside from whiplash, one of the most common auto accident injuries, common motor vehicle accident injuries include:

  • Herniated Discs – Trauma to your vertebrae can cause them to swell up, bulge, or even break open. You will suffer from excessive lower back pain when this occurs. 
  • Soft Tissue Tearing – The soft tissue in your back and neck, such as your tendons and muscles, are very prone to tearing in an accident. When this happens, severe nerve pain may spread through your back. 
  • Compression Fractures – Impact damage in an accident can cause severe compression on your vertebrae that can cause fractures. 
  • Axial Bursts – A sudden burst of severe pressure on your spine can cause the disintegration of multiple vertebrae in your back, resulting in substantial and chronic pain. 

Even worse, many issues aren't apparent immediately after an accident. For example, some brain injuries may occur during a crash that goes untreated for years. Many types of soft tissue damage also lack immediate symptoms. As a result, they can get worse over a period of weeks and cause severe lower back pain that forces you to stay out of work or to get immediate treatment. 

Ways a Chiropractor Can Help With Auto Accident Injuries

Our chiropractor performs careful manipulation of your muscles, ligaments, and tendons to help you recover from a car accident. We can also use a variety of massaging techniques to manage soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash and a broad range of pain issues. 

Our physical therapy techniques also include a variety of simple exercises that can help restore mobility to your injury. For example, light stretches can keep your neck strong and flexible after staying immobile with whiplash for an extended period.
