Whiplash Treatment and Pain Management from a Chiropractor in Livonia
Car accidents are terrifying, but they’re also very common. According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, nearly 50 million people will suffer a disability or injury from a car accident. Up to 1.3 million people are fatally injured.
If you’re dealing with auto accident injuries like whiplash, you should contact a Livonia chiropractor for pain relief.
What Is Whiplash?
Whiplash typically occurs from auto accident injuries. A hard impact blasts your body forward, and then jerks you back violently. This impact damages the spine, which could lead to neck, back, and shoulder issues.
What Are the Symptoms?
Depending on the accident, your symptoms may be mild or chronic. A Livonia chiropractor can help regardless of symptom severity.
Common symptoms include coordination and balance issues, lack of sensation in the affected area, feeling of weakness in the affected area, neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, spinal misalignments, and headaches or migraines.
These symptoms often detract from the quality of life. Some whiplash patients develop depression or other mental health disorders after the accident. Others find they can’t do basic activities without pain or stiffness. They may have difficulty walking, driving, and sleeping.
Pain Management and Whiplash Treatment in Livonia
A car accident chiropractor can offer pain relief. We understand the symptoms of whiplash, including headaches and migraines, wooziness, and bodily pain. During your first appointment with a Livonia chiropractor, you can discuss which of those symptoms is affecting you most.
Your chiropractor will then create a treatment plan. We may recommend corrective exercises as part of that plan. These consist of stretches and gentle moves that restore mobility, flexibility, and strength to the damaged areas.
In addition to these corrective exercises, we’ll also do chiropractic adjustments and decompression therapy. These treatments target the spine, correcting abnormalities like pinched nerves, stretched muscles, aching joints, and bone misalignments. With these treatments, your pain levels should decrease.
We also offer pain management services for chronic pain sufferers. With our chiropractic techniques and manipulations, we can treat such conditions as fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, headaches, neck pain, and back pain.
By targeting your sore muscles, you should notice your migraines and headaches disappear. We will treat inflammation and tension in the neck and back, soothing these areas. If a pinched nerve or herniated disc is causing your back pain, we will address these as well.
