Get Safe And Effective Chiropractic Treatment After A Car Accident
People who sustained an auto accident injury may not only find the experience traumatic, but they may have to deal with other stressors beyond injuries. The additional stress can create difficulties for everyday life. Here at Chiropractic West in Bessemer, AL, our chiropractor, Dr. Lowell Bragg, treats a number of conditions associated with auto accidents, such as whiplash, neck and back pain, headaches, anxiety, fatigue, and difficulty of sleeping.
Whiplash is one of the most common conditions associated with automobile accidents. People who have whiplash can experience a wide range of symptoms, including, but not limited to, neck pain and stiffness, numbness and tingling in the upper or lower extremities, fatigue, and dizziness. Some people also experience blurry vision, sleep disturbances, and tinnitus.
Back pain is another condition commonly associated with car accidents. Some symptoms associated with back pain include muscle aches, shooting or stabbing pain, pain that radiates down one or both legs, and pain that becomes worse when performing activities like walking, standing, lifting, or bending.
Headaches can be trigger by whiplash or a head injury. The stress or strain in your neck muscles caused by the accident can radiate pain to your head, thus, causing headaches. Signs of headaches are nausea, vomiting, dizziness, vertigo, tenderness or tightness in the head, and eye pain when looking at lights.
