Auto Accident Injury
We all know we're careful every time we get behind the wheel. We plan, prepare, and drive as safely as possible, but sometimes we find ourselves in an auto accident regardless. Accidents are never expected, and lingering auto accident injuries can make daily life difficult. At Atlas Chiropractic, we have been providing residents of Sheridan, WY with natural and effective auto accident injury treatment for many years.
You Seem Fine at First
Depending on the depth and type of your injuries, you might feel fine for a few days following your car accident. Unfortunately, many soft tissue injuries don't reveal themselves until well after an accident. The combination of injuries sustained is different for everyone. Most everyone is warned when they are in urgent care or the emergency room that they will feel some residual soreness and stiffness. The medical staff may have also briefed you to watch out for symptoms of concussions such as disorientation or vomiting. It's common for people to try and treat the soreness with over-the-counter anti-inflammatories. If left unaddressed, auto accident injuries can lead to long-term pain and immobility.
Whiplash Stays Hidden at First
When the head is suddenly knocked in one or more directions and then snaps back into place just as rapidly, it tends to cause damage. It happens so quickly that most people won't remember the moment during the accident when it happened. For a while, things will seem normal. After a bit of time, though, the pain and the stiffness in the neck and the head area returns. In the beginning, it's dismissed as stress, illness, or residual pain from an accident. The critical difference with whiplash is that the pain doesn't subside. You may experience sharp pains when moving your head, have new or worsening headaches and migraines, or even have blurred vision. Some people experience nausea. Our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine whether or not you have sustained a whiplash injury and recommend treatment accordingly.
Chiropractic Care Fixes Auto Accident Injuries
Our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to identify the type, location, and severity of your auto accident injuries. After the extent of your injuries has been determined, we will create a chiropractic care plan tailored to your needs. We work with your body's natural tendencies to help restore range of motion, free up the fluid that runs between your cells, and put your vertebrae back into proper alignment. By restoring your body’s natural alignment, our chiropractor will relieve your pain, restore your range of motion, and improve your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Rather than masking your pain with prescription medication or performing invasive surgery, our chiropractor will treat your car accident injuries naturally and effectively.
