Auto Accident Injury Treatment from Our Palm Beach Gardens Chiropractor
A typical American driver travels as much as 220 miles per week! It's no surprise that accidents occur from time to time. If an accident befalls you or your loved one, we invite you to contact Preferred Chiropractic. Whether you have significant pain from your auto accident injury or aren't even sure if you're hurt, it's a great idea to consult with our Palm Beach Gardens Chiropractor, Dr. Stephen G. Prefer.
What's My Auto Accident Injury?
Common types of auto accident injury that can occur after even minor crashes include:
- Back pain, often caused by joint subluxations, muscle strains and spasms, spinal ligament sprains, or disc herniation or bulge
- Sciatica and other types of nerve compression caused by a traumatically misaligned joint, spinal tissue tension, or an injured disc
- Whiplash, neck pain syndrome due to rapid acceleration and deceleration and whip-like movement of the neck, leads to symptoms such as neck pain and stiffness, headaches, jaw pain, and insomnia
- Shoulder and arm pain, due to things like whiplash, damage to the brachial plexus (the bundle of nerves passing through your shoulder), shoulder joint dislocations, and rotator cuff strains
Most people notice signs and symptoms of an auto accident injury soon after their car crash, typically within 24 to 48 hours. If it's been weeks or even months since your accident and you're "suddenly" dealing with an uncomfortable issue, it's possible you were injured and didn't realize it! This can happen because pain-blocking stress hormones surge during traumatic accidents and can take time to return to normal levels.
Our Palm Beach Gardens Chiropractic staff encourages anyone who's been a car crash to call our clinic ASAP. Our Chiropractor can detect hidden signs of injury and tissue damage, and address these problems early so you can avoid chronic issues later on!
