An auto accident injury can wreck a lot more than your car. These traumatic events can leave you with a variety of musculoskeletal and neurological complaints in addition to insurance and legal headaches. At times like these, it's great to have a trusted advisor who can conclusively diagnose your injuries and prescribe non-pharmaceutical, non-surgical treatments to help you feel better and heal faster. That's exactly what you get when you entrust your auto accident injury to our Meridian ID chiropractors at Spinal Dynamics
The Journal of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons has stated that up to 40 percent of all auto accident injury sufferers face a lifetime of chronic pain. Even a low-speed impact can cause the painful neck symptoms of whiplash, spinal misalignments and torn muscles from seat belt injuries, and neurological symptoms such as sciatica from herniated discs and pinched nerves. To make matters worse, your injury may not display symptoms until a later date, meaning that you don't seek help as soon as you should. Scheduling an immediate spinal evaluation from our chiropractors can ensure that any problems can be found and corrected quickly.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident it is imperative that your spine is examined whether you are experiencing pain or not. Often times patients will not experience pain until days, weeks, or years down the road. According to the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (2007) approximately 15 to 40% of those injured in automobile accidents will struggle with chronic pain the rest of their life. Whether it is a minor case of whiplash or injuries throughout the body chiropractic can help not only eliminate your symptoms but correct the underlying injuries.
When you first come in for an Auto injury, we will want to take some x-rays to make sure there are no severe underlying internal issues. Sometimes you may not notice the symptoms immediately, so x-rays help reduce the risk of further injury. Common symptoms include headaches, pain, stiff neck, blurred vision, shoulder pain, dizziness and reduction of motor skill mobility. After taking x-rays and determining if there is any other internal damage, our team can create a rehabilitation plan to begin your healing process. These plans can range in how robust and long they are depending on the severity of your pain. We will work hand-in-hand together to insure that you are recovering as fast as you can.
When you address an auto injury accident early on, you are giving yourself the best opportunity to recover and heal correctly. Neglecting care can potentially cause severe damage later down the road. Seeing a chiropractor immediately can help make sure your spine is in alignment and help the body start healing right away. Your first step to recovering from your auto injury accident is contacting Spinal Dynamics right away to get you the professional help you need.

3 Ways Our Chiropractic Care Can Help You After an Auto Accident Injury
Symptom relief - Our chiropractors can provide both short-term and long-term relief from the symptoms created by auto accident injuries. We can administer spinal adjustments to correct painful joint subluxations and restore freedom of motion. Our spinal decompression therapy can relieve neurological symptoms by shifting herniated discs away from spinal nerve roots. We also offer physiotherapy to help you rehabilitate soft tissues damaged by the accident.
Faster, more thorough healing - While painkillers may relieve your acute pain, at least temporarily, they will not restore your joints to their normal alignment or your nerve signaling to its normal efficiency. Our chiropractors' techniques address your symptoms by addressing the underlying reasons for those symptoms. We can provide major structural corrections that permit your body to use its own healing mechanisms to the fullest. But unlike major surgery, our corrections don't require recuperation from the procedures themselves.
Establishing your medical record - Your chiropractor can help you optimize your insurance claim as well as your health following an auto accident -- and that's yet another reason to seek chiropractic care as soon as possible. Once we perform the necessary evaluation and diagnosis, we have established a medical record to support your legitimate claim for financial compensation. This medical record may also prove valuable to your case if you're planning on pursuing legal action against the other party in the accident.
