While some of our patients experience a sport-related personal injury or another personal injury, we see a high number of patients walking through our doors that have experienced an auto accident injury. Unfortunately, the impact of a car accident can cause everything from a broken bone to a sprain. At The Vitality Center, serving Hauppauge, NY, and the nearby regions, we offer pain relief solutions for your needs. All pain management programs here are all-natural.
Types of Auto Accident Injuries
Our chiropractor will examine all of you after an auto accident if necessary. However, if you’re having a specific problem, our chiropractor can address that as well.
A common auto accident injury is whiplash. With this injury, your neck is propelled forward and backward rapidly. As a result, the force stresses the nerves and soft tissue in your neck. It may lead to pain, a limited range of motion, or various neurological symptoms, such as headaches.
Another common auto accident injury besides whiplash is a back sprain. With this condition, the stress of the collision causes strain on your soft tissue. As a result, you have symptoms, such as pain and a decrease in flexibility in the area.
Diagnosing the Problem
Before you receive any treatment, our practitioner will assess the problem and determine the severity of it. Keep in mind that even if you don’t have any symptoms, you could have a problem. Some issues don’t arise or cause symptoms for days or even weeks after a car accident.
We may suggest you undergo imaging to give our practitioner a better view of the problem and diagnose it accurately. However, this isn’t always necessary since some injuries are obvious based on your symptoms and physical examination.
Treatment of Auto Accident Injuries
Our chiropractor can help with neck, back, or other musculoskeletal problems. For most, routine chiropractic alignments may be necessary as you are healing. Halo light therapy is another option. It consists of a device that transmits light through amino acids and botanicals. It causes a positive reaction in the body that helps with the healing process.
We offer a variety of treatments for auto accidents and other personal injuries including; Firefly Laser Therapy, Massage, Acupuncture, and Trigger Point Therapies.
We provide options for pain relief, while some treatments are specifically for healing. In most cases, the treatment does both — pain management and promotes healing.
