Most people incorrectly assume that surgeons and physicians are the only healthcare/medical professionals capable of helping those injured in an automobile accident. The truth is an auto-injury chiropractor has the potential to reduce inflammation and pain while helping to restore age-appropriate mobility and flexibility in ways traditional doctors do not. At Kilroy Chiropractic Health Associates in Swampscott, MA, Dr. David Kilroy and his staff have provided noninvasive chiropractic care to those facing acute or chronic pain caused by a car accident.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
When a car accident or mishap occurs, the potential injuries will vary and be based on a number of relevant factors that include, in part –
- The speed of the car(s).
- The type of collision and road conditions at the time.
- The car’s safety features.
- Where you are sitting in the car upon impact, and more.
What makes auto injuries tricky is that there are times when the injury does not manifest or show up immediately. This can happen because certain injuries take time to become apparent, or the accident causes your adrenaline level to mask/overtake the newly created injuries and resulting pain. That is why seeking a medical assessment or exam after a car accident is essential, even if you display no apparent signs or symptoms of an injury.
A potential auto accident injury may range from bruising or cuts to extremely serious or life-threatening injuries. The most common auto accident injuries include injuries and damages to the musculoskeletal system. Examples would include –
- Tension or Migraine Headaches
- Neck/Back Pain
- Shoulder/Arm Pain
- Soft Tissue Injuries –
- Ligament sprains
- Muscle strains
- Joint-related Injuries –
