Auto Accident Injuries

.

At Sheppard Chiropractic we treat auto accident injuries including whiplash, back pain, leg pain (sciatia) neck pain, headaches and migraines. Dr. Joseph A Sheppard will help you with pain management and rehabilitation for your car accident injury. Chiropractic care combined with other treatment methods such as massage, physical therapy, and exercises will assist in the healing process and get your body back to normal.

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in automobile accidents. It occurs during the impact of your accident when your neck is forcibly "whipped" back and forth and side to side past its normal range of motion. Whiplash affects the muscles and tissues in your back and neck. You may feel stiffness, back pain and neck pain immediately or it could take days, weeks even months for your symptoms to appear. It is crucial to treat whiplash immediately even if you are not yet experiencing neck or back pain.
Headaches and migraines can be caused by whiplash, head injuries or other types of car accident injury. Headaches may appear when your neck is damaged because the stress or strain on your neck muscles can cause pain to radiate to your head. Head injuries or trauma to your head can cause headaches and migraines. If you are experiencing headaches after your car accident, then you should get treated as soon as possible so that your headache pain does not become permanent.
A herniated disc, which is another injury that can be sustained in an auto accident, occurs when a spinal disc bulges and puts pressure on the nerves in your back. A sudden jerk from a car accident can cause a disc herniation or possibly sciatica.

Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for auto accident injury. Dr. Sheppard will use manual adjustments, massage therapy and corrective exercises combined with physical therapy (Muscle Stimulation) to treat your car accident injures. General chiropractic care and a series of manual adjustments aid with pain management for whiplash, herniated discs and headaches. By adjusting your spine and re-aligning your neck and back, we relieve the pressure from your neck, back and head. Proper alignment can also help improve joint motion, reduce muscle spasm, wear on the spine and nerve irritation allowing your nerves to function optimally.
