Were you recently involved in an auto accident? If so, then regardless of whether it was a minor "fender bender" or something more serious, it's important that you take the steps necessary to protect your health. Here the Chiropractic Offices of Roy A. Logan, DC, we specialize in treating auto accident injuries that commonly lead to problems such as back and neck pain. Ultimately, our goal is to help you heal from your injuries and get back to your normal way of life as much as possible.
Following a Austin auto accident, there are a number of injuries that are common and that we treat here in our office. Perhaps the most common is that of whiplash, which affects the spine but can have symptoms that spread to other areas of the body. Specifically, whiplash occurs when the body experiences a sudden jolt or stop (such as that of a car accident), resulting in the ligaments of the spine being thrust in one direction and thus injured or damaged.
In addition to whiplash, herniated or bulging discs are also quite common injuries following an auto accident. Regardless of the severity of your accident it's recommended that you see an Austin chiropractor following your accident for a full diagnostic exam; this way, you can determine the extent of your injuries and receive the treatment you need as soon as possible.
Some common signs of back pain injury such as whiplash) include sudden, sharp back and/or neck pain, numbness or tingling in the extremities, hip pain, or sudden headaches or migraines. Over time, if these injuries are left untreated you could even develop other symptoms such as ringing in the ears, blurred vision, difficulty sleeping, or memory loss. Again, this is why it's so important to see a chiropractor right away after your accident.
By visiting our Austin auto injury chiropractor after your accident, you can not only determine which injuries you've suffered from, but receive a customized plan for treatment as well. For instance, chiropractor adjustments are often used to treat a number of auto accident injuries, including whiplash. With spinal adjustments, pressure can be taken off the sciatic nerve, discs, and other areas of the body that have been causing you pain. In some cases, spinal decompression may also be recommended for relieving symptoms.
Here at the Chiropractic Offices of Roy A. Logan, DC, we specialize in the treatment of these exact kinds of injuries, so you can rest assured that you'll receive the highest level of care.
