Chiropractic Treatment for Car Accidents in Camarillo

Whiplash Treatment

No one anticipates getting into a car accident, but almost everyone that has the misfortune to get into one will have some negative physical effect as a result. Whether it is just a minor fender bender or serious, multi-car crash, your body will absorb the force. Chiropractic treatment for car accidents in Camarillo is unique to each individual to get the maximum benefit possible.

Common Car Accident Injuries

Neck, shoulder and back injuries are some of the most common issues chiropractors see after a car accident. Whiplash occurs when your cervical spine is abruptly “whipped” backward and then forward, knocking it out of alignment. This injury often happens as the result of a rear-end collision, when the recipient doesn’t know it’s coming. Along with the whipping effect comes muscle stiffness and pain in the days and weeks after the accident. Sometimes, when a driver or passenger sees the impact coming, they will tense up their muscles in anticipation.  This can cause them to end up with strained back muscles, neck muscles or shoulder muscles.

Chiropractic Car Accident Treatments
While your chiropractic treatment for car accidents in will be customized to match your specific injuries, some of the more common treatment methods include:

  • Spinal manipulation
  • Muscle stimulation and/or relaxation therapy
  • Specific exercises to address the area
  • Lifestyle advice to address ergonomic issues that cause pain

Every chiropractic treatment plan for car accidents will include a thorough consultation to determine the main issues and the best course of action to find a solution. Since everyone’s body is different, and every car accident is different, the treatment must be customized to the individual to achieve lasting results.

Addressing the Cause

Although the specific treatment protocols will vary, the overriding concept of addressing the cause first remains the same. Typically, when someone is experiencing pain as the result of a car accident, the idea is to mask the pain with pain medication. While this may provide immediate pain relief, the problem that is causing the pain is probably still there.

Our Camarillo chiropractor will investigate, and get to the underlying cause of the pain. Contact our team today with any questions that you have.  We look forward to hearing from you.
