Auto Accident Injury Treatment

Auto Accident Injury Treatment at Idaho Chiropractic Group

Most people rely on their car to get them from place to place including to work, school, and even to run errands around town. Of course, safety needs to come first whenever anyone sets foot inside of a motor vehicle. An accident can happen at any time and, regardless of how severe the accident may seem, anyone can end up with a serious injury. With this in mind, it is a good idea for everyone to have a basic understanding of some of the injuries that an individual might suffer. The trained team from Idaho Chiropractic Group is here to educate everyone in the Boise, ID area.

Idaho Chiropractic Group: Auto-Injury

Whiplash is a Common Auto Accident Injury

One of the most frequently encountered injuries that someone might suffer in a motor vehicle collision is called whiplash. This is the common term used to describe a cervical ligament strain. The spine is divided into multiple parts and the portion at the top is called the cervical area. There are ligaments that join the cervical vertebrae together and give them their flexibility. In an auto accident, the head and neck move back and forth quickly, straining these ligaments. This leads to whiplash, which can be incredibly painful. Fortunately, a trained chiropractor can help someone recover from this injury.

A Herniated Disc is Common Following a Collision

Another common back injury is called a herniated disc. The vertebrae provide protection for the spinal cord and are divided by cushions called discs. These discs prevent the bones from scraping against each other. In an accident, these discs can rupture and liquid can pour out onto the nerves of the spinal cord. This can lead to shooting pains down the arms and legs. A trained chiropractor can help someone recover following a herniated disc.

Head Injuries can be Serious

Finally, individuals may also sustain a head injury in a motor vehicle accident. The rapid changes in momentum can cause someone to strike their head on the steering wheel, door, or dashboard. This can lead to a concussion, a skull fracture or even a brain bleed. Head injuries always need to be evaluated by a trained medical professional as quickly as possible. Fortunately, a chiropractor has the tools necessary to help someone recover.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I'm a young and fairly active woman. I started having a pain in my hip area and thought it was a pinched nerve or something. The pain was getting stronger every time this would happen. The last time it happened the pain was so bad it put me into tears! I didn't want to go to a doc in the box because I figured they would just prescribe me pain pills and not fix the problem... whatever that would be. My Office Manager suggested that I go to Dr.Klena. She and the staff here at my new job all used h
