Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL Chiropractic Auto Accident Treatment

Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL auto injury recovery and treatment by Select Health and WellnessEach year, there are millions of car crashes in the world, and a substantial number of people end up getting hurt in a car wreck. While most accidents are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still frequent health problems. The good news is that chiropractic is a fantastic way to help these kinds of injuries.

We've treated many auto injury patients in our Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL office, and Select Health and Wellness has been treating people with these types of injuries since 2014. During a car accident, your body is subjected to large forces that it simply wasn't built to deal with. These forces put stress and strain on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can result in damage to the ligaments that hold your spine together. A collision can result in a vast array of pain issues.

A ligament tear in the neck can trigger pain, swelling, and radicular problems in the arm and hand. Chiropractic works well for these types of problems, because chiropractic focuses on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured areas.

Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL TMJ Pain and Auto Injury

Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL TMJ Treatment by Select Health and WellnessJaw or TMJ pain is a fairly typical condition experienced by people after a car crash, and it can be hard for some physicians to identify the cause of the problem. Complicating the matter, very often you won't develop TMJ symptoms until many weeks or months after a crash.

Select Health and Wellness has helped many men and women with jaw pain after an injury, and the scientific literature explains what produces these types of symptoms. During a crash, the tissues in your spine are commonly stretched or torn, causing ligament, muscle, or nerve injury. This can obviously cause pain in the neck and back, but since your nervous system is one functioning unit, irritation of the nerves can cause pain in other parts of your body.

For instance, with radicular pain, irritation of a nerve can cause tingling or pins and needles in the arm or hand. Similarly, it can affect parts of your body above the injury, like your head and jaw. Headaches after a crash are very common because of neck injury, and the jaw works the same way. Select Health and Wellness sees this very often in our Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL office.

Research Shows Chiropractic Lessens TMJ Pain After an Auto Accident

Research shows that the root of many jaw or TMJ problems begins in the cervical spine and that treatment of the underlying neck problem can resolve the secondary headaches or jaw symptoms. The trick to dealing with these symptoms is simple: Select Health and Wellness will work to return your spine back to health, alleviating the inflammatory reaction, treating the injured areas, and removing the irritation to the nerves in your spine.

Select Health and Wellness finds that jaw and headache issues often resolve once we restore your spine to its healthy state.

Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL Neck Pain and Car Accidents

We treat many car accident cases in our Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL office, and a widespread symptom our patients report is neck pain. If you are dealing with neck pain after an auto injury, you're not alone. Select Health and Wellness sees this type of problem very often in our Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL office.

Let's see why neck pain is frequently experienced after an auto collision and see how your chiropractor can help you get better.

Chiropractic can be very helpful for neck pain symptoms after a crash. Let's examine what causes neck pain and why chiropractic works. Chiropractic is an effective way to treat neck pain. Let's look at how neck pain is caused by a crash and how Select Health and Wellness can help you.

It's not surprising that neck pain is the most common problem experienced after an auto injury. Even in a collision, your head is rapidly thrown back and forth, so it's not surprising that neck pain is the most common symptom from this type of injury. The neck is exposed to very high stresses and strains during a crash, so it's not surprising that neck pain is so common from this type of injury. During even a low velocity collision, your head is subjected to extremely rapid acceleration. In such accidents, a head that normally weighs about 10 pounds can suddenly weigh 80 or more pounds. This force exerts an extreme strain on the tissues of the neck. The bones of your neck are held together with strong bands of tissue called ligaments, and these ligaments provide stability for your neck. These ligaments can be sprained during a car crash, just as your ankle ligaments can be sprained. A sprain means that the ligament is stretched or torn.

When you experience a sprained ligament, the damaged area become swollen and sore, and that's what takes place after a car crash. Chiropractic helps by increasing movement in the injured area, which helps the tissues heal and helps lessen scar tissue.

Headache and Car Crashes

If you are suffering from headache after a car accident, you're not alone. Select Health and Wellness sees this type of problem frequently in our Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL office. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headache. Let's look at how headache is caused by a crash and how Select Health and Wellness can help you.

There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto injury, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes inflammation and discomfort. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.

Another common cause of pain after a collision that we see in our Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that start in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is very common after a crash, and it's important to get therapy for this type of problem to prevent the creation of scar tissue.

Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Your chiropractor will help reduce the swelling and strain in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Car Crashes

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common problem after a car accident, and it's something that Select Health and Wellness sees frequently in our Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL office. The key to recovering from thoracic outlet syndrome caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help.

The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These nerves and blood vessels don't have a lot of space, so they pass under and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.

In a collision, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become swollen and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which limits motion and puts pressure on the tissues of the thoracic outlet. Pressure on the nerves can cause tingling or numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.

Back Pain and Car Crashes

If you suffer from back pain after an auto collision, don't despair. Select Health and Wellness sees this type of condition very often in our Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL office. What causes back pain after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help?

During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the seat can put uneven pressure on your lower back. This can cause some of your spinal vertebrae to move in one direction while an adjacent vertebrae might move in another direction. This differential movement can sprain or strain the structures that hold your spine together. This kind of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

You don't have to suffer from back pain. Select Health and Wellness is conveniently located in Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL to help you recover, whether you've been in an auto collision or not. First, we'll do a careful evaluation to determine the root cause of your pain, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning. Give our office a call today at (904) 425-9060 to make an appointment.

 

Shoulder Pain and Car Crashes

We work with many car accident cases in in our Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is shoulder pain. Let's take a look at why shoulder pain is commonly experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic can help you recover.

There are at least two ways that you can get shoulder problems after a car crash: by direct injury to the shoulder or by radiating pain from the neck.

Direct trauma can be caused by striking your shoulder on a hard surface in the car during the impact, or can occur if you have a tight grip on the steering wheel during a rear end impact. With this type of trauma, you'll often be aware of the pain soon after the crash.

More commonly, Select Health and Wellness finds that shoulder or arm pain does not immediately appear after a crash, but starts a few days or weeks after the trauma. This type of shoulder discomfort actually starts in the neck. Injured ligaments or muscles in your spine can squeeze nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or soreness in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.

We've treated both kinds of shoulder problems in our Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL office. This approach involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural mobility and home exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.

You don't have to suffer from shoulder pain. Select Health and Wellness is conveniently located in Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL to help you heal, whether you've been in an auto collision or not. Select Health and Wellness will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?

In this study, 747 participants were treated for low back pain. Each patient was assessed based on the first person they sought treatment with, whether it was a primary care physician, a chiropractor, or a physiotherapist.

What the authors discovered is that the subjects who first saw a chiropractor had fewer advanced imaging tests and fewer surgical procedures.
