Car Accident Back Injury Treatment with our Everett Chiropractor
If you have recently been injured in an automobile accident and live in the Everett, Martha Lake, Lynwood, Cathcart or surrounding areas, we invite you to find pain relief at Cornerstone Chiropractic. Our Everett chiropractor, Dr. Lichfield, uses chiropractic care as a holistic approach toward your healing. He locates the source of your pain, examines your injuries and develops a personalized health plan for your recovery.
Our goal is to restore your body to better health instead of covering up your symptoms while you "wait out" the recovery process. Chiropractic care works with your body's healing abilities to decrease your recovery time and your pain. Car accidents are stressful enough without having to also endure back pain. Please contact us as soon as possible after your accident so we can begin your healing plan.
Chiropractic Healing for Back Injuries
The trauma from an auto accident may lead to back injuries and back pain. Depending on the angle of impact, your pain may be in your upper, middle or lower back. Some of the reasons for back pain after an auto accident include:
Herniated Discs - The discs are located between the vertebrae of your spine. If the impact has compressed the fluid-filled disc, it may crack and the fluid can leak out. You feel pain as the disc takes up the space normally reserved for the nerves. You may also feel limited mobility, muscle weakness or numbness in your arms and legs. Adjustments position the vertebrae off the disc to help it recover.
Sciatica - If the impact of the accident caused your lower back to shift out of alignment, you may feel the symptoms of sciatica. These include lower back pain, hip pain, leg pain, leg weakness and numbness. A vertebra may be compressing the sciatic nerve and can be alleviated with gentle chiropractic adjustments.
Muscle Strains - An auto accident may lead to an overstraining of the muscles in your back. Our massage therapy services work to ease muscle tension and help prevent the buildup of scar tissue. Plus, massage therapy stimulates circulation to the area for quick healing.
