At Fakhoury Medical and Chiropractic Center, we see a great deal of car accident injury victims in desperate need of treatment. Our treatment covers such common occurrences such as back pain, whiplash, neck pain, migraines and headaches.
Automobile accidents can cause a plethora of physical problems ranging from mild to serious. One of the most common of these injuries is whiplash.
Whiplash occurs when after a sudden impact, you neck is “whipped” forcibly side to side and back and forth beyond its usual range of motion. This affects the tissues and muscles in both your neck and back. Symptoms will usually include both neck and back pain along with constant stiffness. However, it can take an inordinate amount of time for the problems to actually manifest themselves. Some victims have suffered symptoms several months after the accident! This is why it is imperative that you get treatment for whiplash IMMEDIATELY after any car accident even if you are not experiencing back or neck pain.
Another problem resulting from whiplash includes migraines and headaches. Headaches can happen as a result of neck damage due to the strain on the neck muscles. The damage allows pain to radiate upward to your head. Headaches can also be caused by trauma to your head such as banging it on a steering wheel or even an air bag impact. If you are the victim of a automobile accident and are experiencing headaches, please see treatment immediately.
What about herniated discs? You guessed it; another major byproduct of car or motorcycle accidents. This occurs when one of your spinal discs begins to bulge and pressure is put directly on the thousands of nerves in your back. When you are involved in an accident and receive a sudden jerk, often the result will be a herniation.
In the majority of cases, chiropractic care is the most effective treatment method for car accident injury. At Fakhoury Medical and Chiropractic, we will determine the extent of your injury, develop a plan and follow that plan to get you feeling great again! Our staff uses manual adjustments, massage, rehabilitation and more to guarantee that all the treatment you will ever need will be found under one roof, ours.
