Auto Accident Injuries We Can Treat

Car accidents, especially severe car accidents, can cause a variety of different injuries. However, whiplash is a common injury caused by a car accident. It can be important that you recognize the symptoms of whiplash so that you can get care from our chiropractor, Dr. Custer, as quickly as possible.

Whiplash might cause dizziness and headaches before the neck pain manifests. The pain may start a few hours or even days after the accident. This is caused by trauma to the tendons and muscles of the neck.

While whiplash is a common car accident injury that we can help treat, our chiropractor can also effectively treat the following injuries:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Stiff joints
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Nerve pain

Chiropractic Treatment for an Auto Accident Injury

Dr. Custer will start treatment with a thorough examination. Depending on the results of the exam, she may recommend that you get an x-ray or an MRI. After she has gathered all the relevant information, she will work with you to come up with a treatment plan. This treatment plan may include a combination of different treatment methods. The treatment methods used by Dr. Custer include:

  • Spinal manipulation
  • Massage therapy
  • Corrective exercises
  • Lifestyle changes

Dr. Custer will also adjust the treatment regimen as needed through the duration of your recovery to help ensure that you get the best results.
