Did you know auto accident injuries can occur during collisions at as low as five miles per hour? Although symptoms such as bruising might not be immediately visually apparent, even minor accidents like these can lead to painful seat belt injuries and whiplash. If you have been involved in a car accident, we encourage you to seek whiplash treatment in Tulsa right away.
Sometimes whiplash symptoms do not appear until days or even weeks after an auto accident. For this reason, it is important to seek medical treatment immediately after an accident in order to minimize symptoms and to document the injury for insurance purposes. If you have been involved in an auto accident, our Tulsa chiropractor will perform a gentle medical evaluation and physical, looking for any signs of injury, and he will ask you about any symptoms you might be experiencing to reach a diagnosis. If signs of whiplash are apparent, he will work with you to develop a treatment and recovery plan to best help you mitigate and relieve the unpleasant symptoms of whiplash.
Our chiropractic wellness plans incorporate a variety of holistic services aimed to accelerate healing while providing natural, non-invasive pain relief. These services include gentle spinal manipulation, inter-segmental traction, therapeutic ultrasound, corrective exercises and stretches, and physical therapy modalities to assist you with recovering from injury. Each of these treatments and therapies helps your body heal and recover from injury by reducing inflammation at the affected site. Reduced inflammation relieves pain and increases blood flow circulation to the injury, which ensures the efficient delivery of the oxygen and nutrients vital to accelerated healing. Properly healed auto accident injuries, such as whiplash, prevent the formation of scar tissue, which if left unchecked could lead to future symptoms and limited mobility.
If you have been involved in an auto accident, you likely incurred a car accident injury during the incident. No matter the severity of the injury, symptoms of even minor whiplash or seat belt injury can become severe. If left untreated, auto accident injuries often lead to severe neck and back pain, frequent headaches and migraines, dizziness, visual disturbances, depression, insomnia, and irritability. We encourage you to schedule a neck pain relief or auto accident appointment with our Tulsa chiropractor as soon as possible following a vehicle collision.
