At Dr. Vanessa Troise – Chiropractic & Holistic Wellness, we offer solutions for those in the greater North Massapequa, NY area who are suffering from auto accident injuries. Dr. Troise and her friendly staff are dedicated to helping their patients find relief from pain and restored health and wellness. We can help ease the pain, return lost mobility, and avoid future damage by using proven techniques to restore normal function after an auto accident injury.
Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries. It occurs when a sudden braking or speeding up causes the rapid, unrestricted back and forth movement of the neck and head. This causes damage to both the soft tissues and the delicate bone structures of your neck. That damage often leads to pain, lack of mobility, and even long-term difficulties if left untreated. These effects can be difficult to treat with traditional medicine.
Back injuries are another common auto accident injury. As with whiplash, the symptoms can range from mild to severe, including spinal cord injuries. Damage to the soft tissues of the feet, toes, wrists, hands, and fingers is also common in auto accidents. These extremities often absorb much of the impact and this can cause a wide range of difficulties.
Not all automobile accident injuries are obvious right away. The dopamine and adrenaline released during the accident – and subsequent tumult – often obscure the pain until hours, or even days, later. Those described above are often these types of “hidden” injuries.
For instance, whiplash symptoms can take anywhere from 24 to 48 hours to show themselves. When they do begin to appear, people often do not connect them with the accident right away. By seeing a chiropractor immediately after an auto accident, these hidden injuries can be diagnosed and treated before they become a permanent problem.
General soreness and stiffness are common complaints after auto accidents. These conditions often inhibit one’s movement. Through adjustment and targeted massage, chiropractors can help their patients regain full range of motion.
Chiropractic adjustments can often help to restore the spine and the soft tissues surrounding it to their proper function. Depending upon the severity of the accident and subsequent injury chiropractic help can help with the loss of function, feeling, and mobility.
Furthermore, a chiropractor can help increase one’s blood flow by mobilizing the spinal joints. This aids the body in its effort to heal injured areas.
