There are 6 million car accidents across the U.S. every year. In New York alone, there are more than 120,000 each year that results in the driver or passenger having to visit an emergency room. If you have ever been in a car accident, you may know that even the smallest auto accident injury can cause painful trauma to the body. Even a small injury can become chronic, lead to disability, or take you away from your normal life. If you are struggling with an injury or pain after a car accident, Dr. Sofos at Sofos Chiropractic in White Plains will treat your injury and pain to help get you back to living your life.
How a Chiropractor Can Help With Auto Accident Injuries
If you have been in a car accident, several types of injuries may be affecting your life. These injuries can be treated with chiropractic adjustments and pain management, including:
- Back pain and neck pain: Back and neck pain are the leading causes of missed workdays around the world. That type of pain can easily be caused by a car accident. During a wreck, you may experience strain, muscle pulls, nerve damage, or spinal injuries that can leave you in pain at the moment, or take several days or weeks to manifest. If left untreated, this condition could interfere with the rest of your life.
- Whiplash: Also referred to as a neck strain or sprain, whiplash is the most common injury associated with auto accidents. Whiplash happens when your head and neck move in one direction and then suddenly in another in a whip-like motion that results in overstretching your joints, muscles, and neck.
- Inflammation: Trauma from a car accident can lead to inflammation throughout your body that can make even the smallest injury seem more painful. A chiropractic adjustment will reduce the inflammation and the pain caused by an auto accident.
- Soft tissue injuries: Soft tissue connects your skin, muscles, ligaments, and organs. During a car accident, your soft tissue can be torn, leaving you with pain and soreness. We will stretch out your soft tissue to relieve your pain and support the healing process with chiropractic care.
