When you're in a car accident, particularly when you're involved in a rear-end collision, the sudden jerk forward and subsequent pull backwards can cause neck strain, also known as whiplash. Whiplash is a type of neck and shoulder injury that can have devastating, long-term consequences if treatment is not sought.
Knowing where to go if you're in a car accident can help you seek treatment that you need to feel better and return to life as it used to be. At the Chiropractic Offices of Dr. Roy Logan in Austin, TX, we treat whiplash on a regular basis. We know the types of treatments you need to feel like yourself again.
It may not be apparent at first that you have a whiplash injury. Knowing the signs of whiplash can help you determine that it's time to seek treatment. Below are a few of the symptoms of whiplash:
Stiffness and tenderness
Limited range of motion
If you display even a handful of these symptoms after your accident, it's possible you have whiplash and need to seek treatment.
If you suffer from a spine injury as a result of an auto injury in Austin, you need an Austin Chiropractor. Dr. Roy Logan will use the following techniques to treat your neck and spine injury:
Spinal adjustment. Spinal adjustment is a standard chiropractic treatment that re-aligns the spine and eliminates subluxations, which is a pinching of the spinal cord that prevents messages from being sent to the body from the brain. Spinal adjustments can help return the spine to its original condition before the auto accident occurred.
Stretches and exercises. Stretches and exercises help improve range of motion and strengthen muscles, enabling a faster recovery. We teach our patients to do exercises in their free time at home, so they can continue to work on their recovery at their convenience.
Therapeutic massage. We administer therapeutic massage to help increase blood flow to the injured area and relax the muscles, speeding your recovery and lessening your discomfort. Our massage techniques also help to make stretches and exercises possible.
Lifestyle changes. We advise our patients on various lifestyle changes that would help them reverse some of the damage and prevent further damage.
