Injured in an Auto Accident?

auto injuries are commonly helped by seeing a chiropractor

Do you have whiplash in Lexington? Most car accidents in Lexington are rear end collisions. Some people that are involved in rear-end collisions don't even realize they've incurred a whiplash injury. The pain or other symptoms associated with a whiplash injury don't always present immediately following a car accident. Symptoms in the form of headaches, neck or upper back stiffness or neck or upper back pain, are some of the more frequently experienced symptoms following a car crash. Sometimes these symptoms present immediately after the accident, but sometimes they may not present for days and maybe even weeks after the accident. It's important to still get evaluated though. Your insurance will pay 100% of all of your necessary and related medical expenses.

To have success with a whiplash injury, it's important to work with a provider that understands the problem. A Chiropractors' education prepares us to handle these type injuries. The sooner a Doctor of Chiropractic evaluates you for potential injury after the car accident, and the sooner you start care for any whiplash injuries sustained, the less chance you have of developing long term problems. If you have been injured in an accident, this article from LifeStyle Chiropractic will help you understand the options that you have.

Whiplash in Lexington

Whiplash injuries are a serious matter. The results can be devastating if an injury of this caliber is left untreated. What's unfortunate, is that most people don't even realize they are injured until long after the accident. By the time many people realize they are in need of help, their problems have escalated to a much greater condition.

Injuries tend to be more significant when your headrest is positioned too low. In the instance where your headrest is positioned too low it can act as an acceleration point when you are hit from behind. A 5 mph impact can result in your head whipping back at a much higher rate of speed causing greater injury.

Statistically, significant improvement was noted for 93% of the 28 patients studied in the Woodward study while under chiropractic care. In the research study chiropractic care consisted of spinal manipulation, PNF, and cryotherapy. Many of the patients were treated prior to the study with NSAIDS, soft colors, and physiotherapy.

Chiropractic care is an effective modality for patients that have been injured in motor vehicle accidents. The study mentioned earlier was able to clearly document the success and experience most chiropractors see in clinical practice. Symptoms ranging from headaches to neck pain, back pain, inter-scapular pain, and related extremity pain with numbness and tingling often respond very well to chiropractic care.
