Getting in a car accident is stressful, terrifying, expensive, and altogether frustrating. You have so many steps: police, insurance, car dealers, car repairmen – the list is endless and in the mess of it all you don’t recognize the subtle but persistent aches in your spine and through your shoulders. Until the stress subsides, the adrenaline fades and the fear is replaced with passive annoyance, many people don’t recognize the bodily damage that they have endured. Ignoring that pain could be as dangerous as driving a totaled car – and yet too many Mesquite Car Accident victims let their discomfort take a place on the back burner.
The number of possible injuries from an auto accident are countless and intimidating if you are trying to self-diagnose because many conditions produce common symptoms and yet the solutions are vastly different. We know it is just one more step to worry about, but at American Chiropractic Auto and Work Injury Clinic, if you make the call, we will handle the rest. Slight symptoms like headaches may seem harmless, but they can easily develop into a problem that is impossible to control. The importance of seeking immediate attention from one of our qualified Chiropractic car accident specialists is imperative. We are located in the northern Mesquite area and are proud to serve auto injury patients from surrounding cities such as Downtown Dallas, Sunnyvale, Rockwall, Balch Springs and Garland.
Whiplash is the most common severe auto injury and can produce a variety of consequences. Several cases heal on their own – but not without a great amount of pain. Frequently caused by being rear-ended or coming to a sudden stop, the neck has trouble keeping up with the momentum of the car, allowing the head to snap back and forth and forcing the spine to extend beyond its natural limits. The result of this can soon become a medical disaster, and if left untreated, can cause you chronic pain for the rest of your life.
Another common auto injury is subluxation. In simplest terms, a subluxation (or Vertebral Subluxation) occurs when one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) are moved out of position and create pressure on, or irritate spinal nerves. This will not heal naturally but you may not notice the problem for years because it isn’t painful unless the misaligned vertebra presses on the nerve. However, pain is not the only symptom. The best way to prevent any further injuries such as herniated discs or increased pain is to stay informed about the possible conditions and contact American Chiropractic Auto and Work Injury Clinic immediately after your accident. We have a outstanding team of trained, knowledgeable, experienced and caring Doctors of Chiropractic ready to help – and we are recognized as an esteemed clinic in the Dallas metroplex.
Whether your accident was an hour ago or decades in the past, whether you don’t feel any aches yet or the pain is so excruciating you can hardly move – our staff is ready to help. At American Chiropractic Auto and Work Injury Clinic, we target the problem at its source and begin healing there; we don’t just simply mask the pain, because when you are healthy, we are happy.
