At Taylor Chiropractic Center, we’re proud to be a home for healing for hundreds of people in the Wellington area. One of the medical issues we see frequently in our patients are auto injuries. Many of our patients come to us feeling totally exacerbated and stressed, after all, they were “fine” after the car accident a few weeks ago, but now suddenly there is intense back pain, frequent headaches, or trouble sleeping. Read on to learn why this delay of symptoms can happen and how we can help you heal naturally from an auto injury.
Understanding Your Auto Injury
In traumatic events like an auto accident (including minor fender benders), fight or flight hormones increase within your body. These hormones can mask pain, and if the hormones take some time to return to normal levels, you may not notice an injury immediately after an auto accident. Unfortunately, this means you could walk around for days or weeks without realizing there are unresolved physical issues stemming from your car crash and if these are left untreated for too long, you’re more at risk for having chronic problems.
We strongly encourage anyone who’s been in an auto accident to check in with a chiropractor. Our Wellington chiropractor can diagnose and treat the most common types of auto injuries, including:
- Whiplash (neck strain syndrome)
- Concussion and post-concussion syndrome
- Joint dislocations, especially in the spine, shoulder, and hip
- Disc herniation or disc bulge
- Soft tissue injuries like muscle strains, ligament sprains, and tendon tears
Here’s How Our Wellington Chiropractor Can Help After an Auto Injury
Dr. Taylor has spent several years honing his skills in holistic chiropractic care techniques. These techniques are great for addressing pain and dysfunction following an auto injury, whether that injury occurred weeks, months, or years ago. Services at our chiropractic clinic include:
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Spinal decompression
- Physiotherapy, including corrective exercises and non-invasive modalities like cold and heat
- Massage therapy
Hopefully, you’ll notice these services can address both physical and mental/emotional issues that are commonly seen after an auto injury. True healing, after all, involves the whole person, not just the specific auto injury they are dealing with.
