Treating Pain Caused by Auto Accidents
When you are in an auto accident, pain from injuries often doesn’t appear until hours, days or even weeks afterwards. Many people walk away from auto accidents “without a scratch” only to suffer crippling pain, neck strain or headaches much later.
It’s actually quite common for pain and injuries after a car accident to remain undetected for a long period of time.
A Natural Reaction to Trauma
That’s because when you are in an accident, the body automatically secretes defensive hormones such as adrenaline that are natural pain-killers. In some case, people go into a state of shock after an accident, leaving them immune to pain or other symptoms of injuries.
It’s only hours or even days later – after the body’s natural defenses wear off – that they begin to realize that they were hurt in the accident.
Post-Traumatic Pain Symptoms
Some of the most common symptoms you can experience hours after a car accident include:
- Mild to Excruciating pain in the back, neck or head.
- Difficulty breathing or inhaling deeply
- Pain while urinating
- Numbness or tingling that doesn’t go away after a few minutes
- If you experience these or other painful symptoms, it’s time to seek medical treatment immediately.
Where to Turn for Help
Many injuries related to car accidents are related to the spinal column. Car collisions can cause the spine to go out of its natural balance, resulting in dull pains in the back and neck, muscle spasms, headaches and other painful symptoms.
Fortunately, gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment can address imbalances in the spinal column, discs, nerves and vertebrae gently yet effectively. In many instances, just a few sessions with our spinal doctor is enough to relieve pain caused by auto accidents and other injuries quickly and permanently.
An Effective Treatment for Auto Accident Pain
Gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment works as a natural, holistic treatment for back pain. It utilizes a series of small gentle decompressions that take the pressure off the discs in your spine. As this pressure is relieved, the nerves within these discs calm down, resulting in the reduction or elimination of back pain.
Combined with soft tissue therapy, gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment is one of the fastest and most effective ways to significantly reduce or eliminate back pain caused by auto accidents and other traumatic injuries. Non-surgical spinal decompression treatment is also effective at treating back pain, neck strain, headaches and other sources of disc conditions caused by aging, work-related injuries, and other causes.
