From anything from light impacts to a high-speed crash, victims of motor vehicle accidents are injured every day. One of the most common injuries is whiplash. At Superior Healthcare LLC in Metairie LA, we provide auto accident victims physmed and chiropractic pain treatment for whiplash and other auto accident injuries.
What is Whiplash?
Whiplash is a common acceleration and deceleration injury. In a motor vehicle crash, the neck and head will continue to accelerate forward after an impact. Then, it suddenly snaps back and forward again. That acceleration and deceleration can damage the vertebrae and connective tissues in the neck, leading to significant pain and immobility. When you first visit our office following your auto accident, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the extent of your whiplash injury before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it.
Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries
Vertebral misalignment can occur after an auto accident even with the use of a seat belt and shoulder harness. Our chiropractor treats spinal misalignments every day. Spinal adjustments are the foundation of chiropractic treatment. Our chiropractor will gently adjust misaligned and subluxated vertebrae back to their intended positions. As a result of these adjustments, pressure on spinal nerves is reduced, pain is relieved, and tight muscles are released. Over time, chiropractic adjustments will relieve your pain, restore your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
