Common Auto Accident Injuries:
Subluxations are the misalignments that occur in a person’s spine after a whiplash trauma, such as in car accidents. During a motor vehicle impact, sudden acceleration and decelerations of the spine often cause subluxations. These misalignments can cause localized discomfort as well as additional pressure and inflammation on the nerves that exit out of those spinal segments.
We focus on conducting a comprehensive examination to detect where your subluxations may be and determine the proper technique needed to alleviate the cause of your pain. At Planck Chiropractic & Rehab, we utilize a combination of physical exam, neurological exams, orthopedic testing as well as digital x-rays to determine the extent of your injuries. Dr. Planck then customizes a tailored treatment plant for each individual patient based on their specific set of injuries.
This occurs when compression and/or inflammation affects the roots of the nerves exiting the spine due to subluxations or disc injury.
Patients may feel multiple symptoms due to Radicular pain such as weakness, numbness and tingling in their extremities. Typical presentation of Radicular pain after injury would be along a nerve path from the neck down one or both arms, or from the lower back down one of both legs.
Our experienced professionals at Auto Accident Injury Stallings NC offer chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue therapy for these issues, including decompression and flexion-distraction therapy. These methods help to take pressure off the surrounding nerves affected by car accident injuries.
After being involved in a motor vehicle accident, patients often experience headaches. The most common headache that people suffer after a motor vehicle accident is a post-traumatic headache. Compression of the spinal nerves due to subluxations of the upper cervical spine (neck) can cause what is known as cervicogenic headaches. Through proper evaluation and treatment, relief from headaches is typically achieved within a few visits. Patients suffering from motor vehicle induce concussion may experience headaches for a more prolonged period due to inflammation in the brain.
Whiplash injuries are not always felt in the spine alone. Injuries to your extremities are also common during a car accident. Sprain and strain injuries commonly occur in the shoulders, elbows, wrists/hands, hips, knees and ankles. During a car accident, often times patients brace on other objects such as the steering wheel, dash board or floor boards for example. The sudden acceleration deceleration of the body can cause injuries to these extremities that are bracing the body during impact.
Whiplash or Sprain/Strain Injuries
Whiplash injuries are defined by a sudden acceleration followed by a deceleration of the spine or extremities resulting in injury. This motion causes your tissues to stretch beyond their normal elastic zones often causing minor to severe sprain/strain injuries or worse partial or full thickness tares of the muscles and tendons.
