Auto Injury, Whiplash, & Personal Injury
Helena and its surrounding areas are seeing a steady increase in population annually. And while we love meeting new residents, with more people come more accidents. Our chiropractic clinic works with several patients who have been involved in an auto or personal injury accident.
With the safe, non-invasive solutions we provide, most of those patients find quick pain relief, no downtime, and an efficient return to their daily activities. We don’t want your acute injury to turn into a chronic injury, so we offer several therapies and services that find the source of your discomfort and treat it there.
Some of the patients we work with include:
- Post-surgery patients
- Prehabilitation patients (those looking for physical support before a surgery)
- Whiplash patients
- Rehabilitation patients
- Back pain patients
- Neck pain patients
- Shoulder pain patients
- And more
We understand that after an accident of any kind, the trauma is more than physical. There can be mental and emotional anguish, as well as financial burdens that increase the stress of the accident. Our safe healing methods center around you and your overall well-being. Restoring you physically will benefit your body and mind.
Book your appointment, and let’s get to work.
Pain Caused by an Auto Accident or Personal Injury Accident
Accidents happen; they’re part of life. In fact, a 2020 study by Esurance found that over 77% of US citizens have been involved in a car accident. And, yes, that’s only car accidents. That doesn’t consider other kinds of accidents.
When the body experiences a sudden, aggressive trauma, adrenaline and shock may take over. These natural responses are intended to help get you out of danger.
You may be able to:
- Move without knowing the complexity or severity of your injury or even that you’re injured at all
- Help others while having injuries of your own
- Get yourself out of an extreme circumstance effectively and quickly
- And more
The body is designed to perform under distress. But not for long.
After an accident, even one you’d consider not serious, it’s crucial to seek medical attention. Minor injuries will affect different people in different ways, so knowing exactly what’s happening inside your body is the responsible step to take for your health.
We want to help you get through the recovery process safely. The last thing the body needs after an accident is further trauma, whether that’s by aggressive surgeries, pain-masking medications, outlandish medical bills, or developing chronic pain.
Our Helena chiropractic team provides relief for patients suffering from various pain issues after a personal injury accident, including:
These pains come in several forms:
- Radiating pain (pain that starts in one place and moves into another)
- Stabbing pain
- Dull pain
- Loss of range of motion
- Pain during a specific movement
- And more
Let us find the root of your symptoms using our holistic solutions and thorough, full-body approach. In most cases, we not only determine what’s wrong, but our services provide the necessary care to end the pain and fix the issue.
Some injuries we help include:
- A strained or sprained ligament or muscle
- Herniated discs
- Nerve irritation
- And more
If you need surgery after an accident, we can help you prehabilitate and rehabilitate using the most non-invasive methods. We know your health and well-being are important to you. Getting your body moving as soon as possible is a key ingredient to your recovery. Chiropractic care helps motivate and activate your soft tissues and joints the right way, ensuring you find your balance and strength as quickly as possible.
What is Whiplash, and How Will it Affect Me?
Many of the patients we work with have whiplash due to their vehicle getting hit from behind (a rear-ended accident). And, it’s true that this event is often the reason for whiplash. However, a person can get whiplash by any forward then backward forceful head jerk. This can happen during a workout session, a contact sport, a fall, a hit or blow to the chin, or even a violent pull of the arms.
When these sudden and harmful events occur, the muscles, tendons, and ligaments may become injured.
Whiplash symptoms can show up as:
- Neck stiffness
- Neck aches or soreness
- Weakness of neck muscles
- Inability to turn head from side to side
- Loss of range of motion or flexibility in the neck
- Inability to sleep
- And more
