Car accidents are all too common. You probably see them around the Minneapolis-St. Paul twin city area every week. If you’ve ever been in one, you know how unpleasant the entire experience could be, especially if you suffer any injuries as a result. In some cases, the pain can be self-managed and dwindles away after a few days. In some cases, however, these injuries need professional care to ensure they don’t become bigger problems down the road or become something that leads to secondary pains. To have your pain properly assessed, it is wise to see a Chiropractor as soon as possible, following the accident. The team at Catalyst Chiropractic is ready to help you get back on the road, pain-free, as quickly as possible.
Care for aches and pains: Neck, back, and joints are common areas of injury from an auto accident. The most common and well-known car accident injury is whiplash. While whiplash rarely results in permanent injury on its own, the neck pain associated with whiplash could be indicative of a deeper issue. Serious neck and back injuries do occur, and a Chiropractor will be able to provide you with a medical evaluation to ensure your pain is not something more serious.
Care for stiffness: Some people may not feel much pain or think the pain is minor from their car accident but will notice stiffness in areas of their body. Stiffness from a car accident is most often in the upper body – the head, neck, arms, shoulders, and upper back. Stiffness in these areas can be indicative of a problem that may lead to pain or additional discomfort down the road.
Care for numbness or tingling: Damage to nerves or the spine can cause numbness in many different areas of your body. Pinched nerves, spinal disc misalignment, herniated discs, compressed nerves, or severed nerves can all cause numbness and tingling sensations. Neck and back injuries are the most common ways for these injuries to occur. Because of the many ways neck and back injuries can occur in car accidents, numbness and tingling is a common symptom, but one that sometimes gets overlooked as a serious concern when people are self-evaluating.
Care for headaches/migraines: A blow to the head, a concussion, or whiplash may cause headaches or migraines for some time following the accident. A headache is only one of the symptoms of a concussion, you may also experience confusion, dizziness, blurred vision, memory issues, or balance problems. A concussion is considered a traumatic brain injury and should be medically treated right away to prevent additional brain damage.
