Treatment For Your Auto Accident Neck Pain

You were in an auto accident but didn’t see an obvious neck injury or feel pain right away. Now, just 24 hours after the crash, you’re suffering from pain that makes it hard to turn your head, causes headaches, and makes it so you can’t sleep.

Neck injuries, including whiplash, are the most common injuries caused by car wrecks. The motion of a crash, which is usually a jerking motion forward and back, means that your neck and upper back muscles suffer the brunt of the crash.

If you live in Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, or anywhere else in the Triad and have suffered a car crash neck injury caused by someone else, then you should seek relief from the chiropractic doctors of Liringis Chiropractic. We’re ready to help meet your rehabilitation needs so that you get your life back and get the settlement dollars you deserve.

Neck Injury Symptoms:
You may not realize you’ve been injured after a car wreck if there’s no immediate signs of a broken bone, cuts or scrapes, or loss of consciousness. However, many muscular, neck and spinal injuries are not seen until an MRI or CT scan is performed. You might experience some other symptoms that are a sign of neck injury, such as:

  • Headaches
  • Pain in the shoulder or upper arms
  • Reduced range of motion in the neck
  • Numbness or weakness around the neck
  • Muscle spasms

As some injuries may involve the spinal cord, a person can experience pain in the extremities, like the arms and hands, if their neck’s been injured.

Types of Injuries:
The most common neck injury is whiplash. However, whiplash may fall into two categories, a neck sprain or a neck strain. A sprain will involve the stretching or tearing of the ligaments in the neck. A strain will involve the stretching or tearing of the muscles in the neck.

Some other neck injuries might include:
  • Cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve)
  • Herniated disc
  • Neck fracture
  • Cervical dislocation

Neck Pain Treatment

The injury you suffered will determine the type of neck pain treatment you’ll need to recover from the trauma. You may need a brace and then rehabilitation to get your range of motion back. Those who suffer a herniated disc, neck fracture, whiplash or another type of neck injury in an accident might need months of physical therapy and chiropractic treatment.
An experienced Liringis Chiropractor can examine your injuries and create a neck pain treatment plan that works best for you. When you reach out to the professionals at Liringis Chiropractor, you can trust that you’re putting your well-being in the right hands.
