Common Auto Injuries

The most common auto injuries we treat are lower back pain, herniated discs, and whiplash. When you are involved in a car crash the sudden impact puts extreme pressure on your internal organs and musculoskeletal system. Even if you do not have broken bones or open wounds, you can still be severely injured internally. Your spine, for example, can be jarred to the point where your spinal vertebraecrack. This can lead to herniated or bulging discs, which are quite painful and can reduce your mobility. 

As a result of herniated discs, many of our accident injury patients we treat suffer from lower back pain. When the discs are swollen, they become inflamed and put undue pressure on the surrounding muscles. This commonly occurs in the muscles of the lower back, and causes radiating pain throughout the area. At the top of your spine, which is your upper cervical spine, your neck bones and muscles can be jarred and torn. This often results in whiplash, which reduces your ability to move your head and neck. 

Late Onset Auto Accident Injuries

Whiplash is a condition that can occur days or even weeks after your auto accident occurs. This is because it often takes a while for the tears in the muscles, or the herniated discs in the upper spine, to become swollen and inflamed. Fortunately, you can start treating your neck for whiplash as soon as you have an accident. This early treatment by a Charlotte chiropractor can reduce your pain in the long term. 

Chiropractic Treatment for Auto Injuries 

Treating these injuries at your auto accident injury chiropractor in Charlotte often begins with a chiropractic adjustment. By realigning your musculoskeletal system this takes any unwanted pressure off of surrounding muscles and nerves. Chiropractic adjustments also increase blood circulation and improve healing from the inside out. This holistic approach to treatment allows you to experience all-natural pain relief as your body works to mend itself.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "This was my second episode of symptoms so bad that I could not work. The first time I turned to an orthopedic clinic for help. It was very slow going for relief. I had always heard good things about chiropractic treatment. The second time around I called Dr. RICHARD GALLAGHER at GALLAGHER Chiropractic after 6:00pm at his office. He saw me the next morning and afternoon and continued to treat me with adjustments and heat therapy. I was walking straight within a few days and pain free within a few weeks. I highly recommend GALLAGHER Chiropractic."
