Treatment for Auto Accident Injuries
Broken glass, red and blue lights, an ambulance ride, and law enforcement; the auto accident was unexpected, and you survived, but now you are in lingering pain. Many of the symptoms of additional injuries may not show up until much later after the car accident. At Bove Family Chiropractic in Norristown, PA, we treat victims of auto accident injuries.
Chiropractic Care Doesn't Add to Your Pain
Chiropractic modalities have come a long way from the methods used in decades past. After you have been in an auto accident, the last thing you want is more injuries. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we may recommend hot or cold therapy or different types of massage therapy to help you heal. Our focus is on helping you feel better while supporting the healing process. Best of all, chiropractic care does not rely on pain medication or invasive procedures like surgery to produce results.
Whiplash Symptoms Can Be Subtle
You may hear the term whiplash often. Images may fill your mind from commercials that show how violently the head snaps with a crash test dummy. Most people do not know that the head being moved this violently is not always necessary to cause whiplash.
The symptoms of whiplash can be subtle. In most cases, the symptoms start with headaches, stiffness at the base of the skull, loss of mobility, or pain in the shoulders. Many people dismiss this as stress, anxiety, work problems, or sleeping incorrectly, especially if they felt fine not long after the accident. Eventually, these symptoms will progress to more severe pain, cause difficulty concentrating, strange mood changes, blurry vision, and migraines. Whiplash and its complications do not get better when left untreated.
How We Can Help
When you come to our office, we will work with you to learn about your auto accident, your work, movements you regularly perform, exercise habits, nutrition profiles, family history of illness, medications or supplements you might be taking, pain levels, and pain locations. We will test your movements, muscles, and perform a comprehensive examination. We will create a customized treatment plan that is designed to provide pain relief while supporting the healing process. The treatment plan will include a combination of treatment modalities to ensure optimal results.
