Each year more than six million car accident and motorcycle wrecks occur in the United States. Each year Dr. Marshall provides chiropractic care for motorcycle accidents and car accidents. Around 3 million people annually suffer from some type of injury related to an automobile crash as a result. One of the most common injuries is whiplash. Whiplash can be a result of even minor car accidents and motorcycle accidents. Whiplash can be very serious and debilitating for those that are affected by it contrary to what some people believe.
You very well could have whiplash if you have recently been in a car crash or even if you were in an accident months or years ago and are suffering from any of the following symptoms. Whiplash can show up immediately or develop over time. Some of the other complaints include:
- Shoulder pain
- Blurred Vision
- Neck pain
- Stiffness in the neck or shoulders
- Vertigo or ringing in the ears
- Tension or irritability
- Recurrent headaches
- Numbness and/or pins and needle sensation
- Pain in feet or hands
- Back pain, mainly lower
- Pain in arms or legs
Believe it or not all of these symptoms can be related to whip lash. Many people need a chiropractor for neck pain. They suffer needlessly from these symptoms. Many even suffer years and for the remainder of their life. Not knowing that Chiropractic care for car accidents can be the answer.
If you have been in car accidents or motorcycle wrecks, it is a good idea to get chiropractic treatment as soon as possible when you have back and neck pain. Tulsa Chiropractors are well educated and trained alternative doctors that specialize in the treatment for the musculoskeletal system. Their thought is that misalignment in the nervous system can cause a whole slew of problems. Including symptoms of whip lash. Through spinal manipulations, they are able to correct alignment and provide patients with relief.
When you are in a car wreck your ligaments and soft tissue are injured. Even your vertebrae in your neck and spine very often are injured. Many people do not realize that a chiropractor can help. Instead, will seek traditional medical treatment. More and more traditional doctors are recognizing that Chiropractics can benefit car wreck patients. There are still much more that will treat whip lash symptoms with pain medication and even surgery. These treatment options very often do very little to help the crash victim heal. Good treatment will come from chiropractic care for car crashes.
When you first visit a chiropractor for whiplash the Dr. will access your injury and very often take x-rays to help them with setting up a treatment plan that will work. In most cases, the Chiropractor will provide treatment at your first visit. This will most often include spinal manipulation but can also include hot or cold treatment. It will also include a massage and stretching and more. The chiropractor may also recommend some exercises or stretching to be done at home in between treatments. Before you leave your first visit the chiropractor will recommend and start you on an intense treatment plan. More than likely you will need to visit the chiropractor often. At least in the beginning of your treatment. As your symptoms begin to alleviate you can usually go longer in between visits. Most people will set up maintenance treatments about once a month after they have healed.
Our treatment is considered safe for just about everyone. Even children and the elderly can benefit from treatment after a crash. Most health insurance companies recognize the benefits of this treatment and most health insurance companies do cover it. Before choosing a chiropractor you will want to make sure that they accept your insurance plan and it is not a bad idea to get referrals from friends or family members. We look forward to seeing you at Marshall Chiropractor Tulsa.
