rsz autoaccident2You’ve just been in a car accident. What’s your next move?

Ideally, you would call your Colorado Springs chiropractor immediately. Due to circumstances, that’s not always possible. 

However, we wanted to share with you some symptoms to watch out for, so you know that it’s time to contact your chiropractor for chiropractic auto injury treatment. 

Common Symptoms Experienced After an Auto Injury

When your body endures a traumatic experience, it goes through an inflammatory process, during which scar tissue develops. Inflammation and scar tissue can lead to pain and lack of mobility. 

If you notice any of these symptoms, contact your Colorado Springs chiropractor.

Signs of Whiplash

A whiplash injury is one in which your neck is forcefully thrust forward and back. If you have whiplash, you’ll develop the following symptoms. 

  • Headaches at the base of the skull
  • Neck pain and stiffness with loss of mobility
  • Sore shoulders and stiffness
  • Tingling or numbness in your arms or hands
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue

Other Common Signs of Auto Injuries

Your neck isn’t the only part of your body that can sustain damage during a collision. Watch out for these symptoms as well.  

  • Lower back pain
  • Mid back pain
  • Numbness or tingling in legs and feet
  • Pain that travels from your buttock down to your ankle
  • Burning sensations
  • Reduced mobility

Why You Need Chiropractic Auto Injury Treatment

The goal of car accident treatment from your Colorado Springs chiropractor is to prevent long-term damage in addition to getting you out of immediate pain.

If the inflammatory and scar tissue development responses aren’t halted, you’ll continue to experience pain and mobility issues for years.

To prevent that, your Colorado Springs chiropractor will recommend an auto injury treatment plan that includes chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and more. The combined treatment will ease your pain now and well into the future.
