Whiplash is both one of the most common and one of the most dreaded forms of auto accident injury. When the car is forced to stop suddenly, the head is "whipped" backward and forward with enough force to dislocate vertebrae, pinch nerves and tear neck muscles. The resulting symptoms may incude:
Neck pain and loss of neck mobility
Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
Cervical radiculopathy (hand and arm tingling, pain, numbness or weakness)
Difficulty concentrating or remembering things
Other Musculoskeletal Auto Accident Injuries
As devastating as it may be, whiplash is only one of the physical traumas you might receive in an auto accident. At the other end of the spinal column, an impact that twists or jolts the lower lumbar vertebrae can force joints out of alignment and create herniated discs. If these press against the sciatic nerve roots, you may experience sciatica symptoms such as leg pain, loss of sensation in the leg or foot, tingling sensations and/or muscle weakness. The midsection of the spinal column can also suffer when a three-point harness restricts body motion on only one side, causing enough twisting to strain thoracic joints and neighboring muscles.
Other joints may also sustain injury in an auto accident. For instance, if your knee is rammed into the dashboard, you may experience severe knee pain and joint dislocation. Scar tissue may then form as a well-intended protective measure that in fact only makes your pain and stiffness even worse.
Holistic Treatment from Your Bloomington Chiropractor
Since an auto accident injury can affect many different tissues and produce a variety of symptoms throughout the body, a "whole body" approach to treatment of such an injury makes perfect sense. Our Bloomington chiropractor, Dr. Hillman, takes a multi-faceted approach that considers all aspects of your injury and its effects. Chiropractic care is an ideal holistic treatment method for its ability to address multiple problems at once. For example, correcting a cervical misalignment can help relieve headaches, arm pain, hand numbness and neck pain caused by whiplash.
Other treatment methods complement our chiropractic adjustments to help you recuperate. Spinal decompression can treat disc injuries and relieve pinched nerves, while massage therapy speeds healing and relieves pain in injured soft tissues. Throughout your treatment, we will be happy to provide all necessary documentation and work with your attorneys if necessary.
