“Are you Alright?”
You may have noticed that ever since the accident you may not have been feeling your normal self. You may be experiencing obvious pains and symptoms like headaches, neck pain, low back pain, muscle stiffness, blurred vision, difficulty sleeping, memory loss, confusion, fatigue, difficulty concentrating and many other problems. Auto accidents can cause Post Traumatic Degenerative Osteoarthritis. Arthritis can ruin your posture, cause the discs in your spine to decay, and lead to the inability to move properly. When this happens, simple tasks like turning your head becomes much more difficult and painful.
Or, did you know that, you may feel completely fine. But symptoms like headaches, neck pain, low back pain and soreness may not show up for days, weeks or possibly months after the accident. Additionally, most auto accidents sufferers are unaware of the long term damaging effects of these injuries.
Wouldn’t you rather want to know for sure that you are okay?
At Just For The Health Of It, we believe that your health is just too important! One of our specialties is treating automobile injuries. Our goal is to get you back to feeling better, out of pain, and restore your health.
We have helped a lot of auto accident sufferers restore their health. We know we can help you as well. If an emergency room doctor or your own medical doctor only briefly looked at you, told you that you had “whiplash,” gave you medication and released you saying “you’ll be fine in a few weeks” perhaps you may want to get a second opinion.
Auto accidents, including the smallest fender bender, can result in serious injuries to the drivers of both cars. They may experience symptoms like headaches, backaches, or muscle stiffness. However, some people may not experience immediate signs of pain. If you or your family are involved in motor vehicle accidents, then they may need to visit a chiropractor for treatment.
Using Adjustments to Treat Injuries
Whether your pain is immediate or shows up a few hours after being in an accident, you may want to visit a chiropractor for an examination if your back, neck, or other parts of your body hurt. Our chiropractors at Just for the Health of It will do a hands-on examination and take x-rays to look for damage like dislocations of your spine and joints.
If they find any problems, then they can design a treatment plan to help you. The treatments may include adjustments to properly realign joints and treat pain with acupuncture or massage therapy. Our chiropractors and licensed personal in Vancouver, WA, can use their skills to make your body feel better and help you heal from your accident.
Along with adjustments for your back, extremities and other parts of your body, a diagnosis of whiplash can be treated by our chiropractors at Just for the Health of It. Whiplash is an injury of the neck caused by the rapid back and forth motion of the head. It can be the result of a car accident when it gets hit from behind.
Fortunately, our staff in Vancouver, WA, can treat whiplash and help resolve the pain and movement issues that it can cause. By examining the neck and spine, our chiropractors will check for areas of tightness, restricted movements of joints, and tenderness. Then, they will assign the appropriate treatments for any problems that they find.
Long-term Relief After Accidents
After being in a car accident, the effects of injuries can last for months, if not years. Fortunately, chiropractic therapy can shorten your recovery time and restore health to your body.
Our chiropractors at Just for the Health of It in Vancouver, WA, may use treatments like spinal manipulations, massage therapy, acupuncture, and other treatments to properly align the body so that you feel better and recover faster.
