Car Accident Chiropractor in Houston TX

I wanted to take this opportunity to reach out to all my patients at our Houston TX chiropractic clinic to inform you, if you weren't already aware, that our office specializes in Auto Injury care. Very often we find that people will visit the Emergency Room or their Medical provider after being involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident, only to be told that "there is nothing wrong with them", or "that it is only in their head." In other instances the patients will have every diagnostic imaging test (X-ray, MRI, CT SCAN, etc.) as well as be prescribed a multitude of pain pills, muscle relaxants, anti-inflammation, etc. All of which costs money, just mask the symptoms and never actually provide treatment for the problems they are experiencing as a result of the Motor Vehicle Accident.

We Offer Comprehensive Treatment For:

  • Whiplash Shoulder Pain Headaches Concussions
  • Back Pain Aches & Pains Stiffness Sleep Disturbance
  • Neck Pain Soreness Numbness Anxiety

We accept all Auto Insurance policies and will work with your attorney or recommend one of the trusted attorneys we have worked with in the past if you need one. We sincerely hope that you, your family and friends never have the unfortunate occurrence of experiencing an Auto Accident. But in the event you do we hope this will serve as a gentle reminder that our office is the "go to place" for your Auto Injury care.


Have You Been In An Auto Accident?

Many people will seek out chiropractic care in Houston TX after having an auto injury.  A common auto injury, whiplash, occurs when the head and neck are whipped from back to front, similar to how a whip is cracked. The majority of car accidents are rear-ended collisions with whiplash being a common result. Whiplash can also occur from other kinds of trauma, accidents, abuse, and falls.

Many people in Houston TX who have been involved in an accident don't even realize they have received a whiplash injury until weeks or months later when the problem becomes persistent and leads to other issues. If your neck has been injured in an accident or other incident, this article will help you to understand if you have a whiplash injury and how chiropractic care can help you to treat it.


Whiplash in Houston TX

When the neck is whipped from back to front during a car accident, while playing contact sports such as football, or occasionally from an assault or other physical trauma, a number of things can happen to the spine and surrounding soft tissue. Whiplash describes the initial impact, but the results can include:

  • Disc bulges and herniation
  • Subluxations (misalignment of the vertebrae in the spine),
  • Injured bones in the spine,
  • Irritated and damaged nerves
  • Pulled ligaments and muscles in the neck

What are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

Whiplash injuries can range from mild to very severe. Injuries tend to be more significant when your headrest is positioned too low. If the impact was quite severe or the headrest was low there is the possibility that bones are broken or tissue is damaged. It is highly recommended that you see a chiropractor and receive a thorough examination and x-rays. Even if the impact seemed mild, you may have whiplash if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder, upper back, and arm pain
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Pain when turning the head
  • Inability to move or turn the head fully
  • Dizziness
  • Tiredness
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms, hands, and fingers
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Depression

As you can see there is a wide range of symptoms and not all of them may be immediately traceable to whiplash. Even if you have been cleared by a doctor, your pain could still be related to whiplash and you may need treatment to correct the problem. If you have recently been injured it's important to get your spine checked as soon as possible. The sooner that you start treating the issue the less chance you have of it developing into a long-term problem.


Chiropractic Care for Car accidents

Because the majority of whiplash incidents impact the spine and the surrounding nerves and tissues, chiropractic care is an excellent avenue for treatment. Chiropractic doctors are skilled in assessing the source of the pain associated with a whiplash injury and determining a plan for effective treatment. Chiropractic treatments are gentle and non-invasive. Through small adjustments, people find great relief from the pain associated with whiplash and are set on a road to full recovery. Call our team at Chiropractic Consultants of Houston to discover how chiropractic care can help you recover from whiplash.
