Car Accident Injury? Bilan Chiropractic Can Help — Anchorage, AK
For most people who sustain injuries in a car accident, visiting a doctor in Anchorage for medication, surgery, and other traditional medical interventions is a common practice. Unfortunately, the trauma of typical car accident injuries such as whiplash, lower back pain, and lower back injury can linger for a long time.
If you visit the emergency room, you may be given a clean bill of health because you don’t have any broken bones. You might get a prescription to reduce the muscle spasms caused by structural changes in your neck or lower back.
After what you’ve been through, you’ll need a chiropractor in Anchorage that truly understands soft tissue injuries, spinal biomechanics and rehabilitation strategies. Call our practice today.
Whiplash is One of the Most Common Injuries After a Car Accident
The term whiplash refers to what happens when a person experiences a strong jolt to the body such as what happens at the moment of impact with a car accident. Within seconds, the jolt can push the musculoskeletal system out of alignment and cause significant back and neck pain. Other common symptoms of whiplash include:
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty concentrating
- Shoulder pain
- Sleep problems
Whiplash can be especially challenging to treat in a medical setting because symptoms can take days, weeks, or even months to surface.
The key to this type of injury is to get the musculoskeletal system back into proper alignment. Chiropractic manipulation is an especially useful tool in achieving proper alignment and can reduce inflammation that leads to some of the other symptoms.
