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
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • 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.

Common Questions

Because the nerves to the arms and hands exit the spine through the injured area of the neck, numbness and tingling are common. Even lower back pain can result directly from the trauma, or as a reaction to the loss of proper spinal curves.
Whether you’ve been in an accident, stressed at work, or over-exerted yourself in the garden, your body is constantly adapting to the environment. When your capacity to adapt is exhausted, symptoms can appear. This can take days, weeks, months or years to occur.
Many chiropractic patients report improved spinal function and a reduction of their symptoms. Those who delay seeking appropriate care often discover that scar tissue and long-standing spinal instability increases the recovery period.
