Caring for Your Palmdale Auto Accident Injury

Even a seemingly minor auto accident injury can leave patients struggling with serious whiplash, back pain and other symptoms for months after the accident occurs. Dr. Dewald understands how frustrating and overwhelming the pain can be for patients. If you are a car accident victim, our experienced team is here to help. Our chiropractic center provides natural, drug-free pain management for your auto accident injury.

Chiropractic Treatment for Your Auto Accident Injury

Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries, affecting thousands of accident victims each year. Whiplash injuries are common because they can occur at speeds as slow as 5 mph. Unfortunately, because whiplash pain can take weeks to develop, many victims of a fender bender mistakenly believe they are uninjured. Symptoms of a whiplash injury include neck pain, recurring headaches and migraines, and stiffness and soreness in the neck. If you are experiencing these symptoms, our Palmdale chiropractor can help.

While prescription painkillers can help relieve whiplash pain, medication is not a permanent solution. Drugs only mask a patient’s pain; once medication wears off, the pain will return. Whiplash causes a misalignment in the cervical spine, “whipping” the neck beyond its normal range of motion. As long as this mechanical misalignment persists, so too will a patient’s pain. Chiropractic care is a natural method that corrects this misalignment and relieves pain.

Chiropractic care is also an effective treatment for herniated discs, another auto accident injury. Like whiplash injuries, a herniated disc occurs when the force of the accident’s impact knocks the spine out of proper alignment. For some victims, this misalignment may occur in the lumbar spine. If a herniated disc compresses the sciatic nerve, for example, this can trigger radiating and numbing pain sensations along the lower back, buttocks and legs.

If you are suffering chronic back pain, neck pain, headaches or migraines as the result of a car accident, a diagnostic appointment with our chiropractor can discover the source of your pain and provide ways to prevent more serious injury from occurring. During this appointment, we will perform diagnostic tests to determine the precise location of your spinal injuries. Results from these tests help our chiropractor create a customized treatment program for drug-free pain relief and injury rehabilitation.

In addition to chiropractic care, our patients benefit from therapies, including physical rehabilitation and massage. These complementary therapies enhance pain relief and also help bring mobility back to the body. For example, corrective exercises help patients safely move the neck again without experiencing significant pain or risking further injury.

An auto accident injury will “get better” on its own. The sooner you can make an appointment to visit our chiropractor, the more immediate chance of pain relief and injury recovery for your body.
