If you are the unfortunate victim of an auto accident, it is important to find an experienced personal injury doctor to evaluate and treat your injuries. Dr. Timothy P. Spears has cared for victims of auto accidents and personal injuries since 1991. He can accurately diagnose your injury which is essential in optimizing your treatment plan and getting you back on the road to recovery.
While cuts and scrapes are apparent immediately after the accident, symptoms for more serious injuries may take a few days to develop. Stay aware in the days and weeks following any car accident to make sure you receive any necessary treatment.
Auto accidents can cause injury to any part of your body. While some individuals notice pain or other symptoms right away, others only notice changes in health or comfort several days after the accident. Because auto accident injuries can have long-term effects on your comfort, health, and quality of life, seeking chiropractic treatment as soon as you notice symptoms of any injury is the best way to minimize the consequences of your injuries.
Common Auto Injuries:
- Neck/ Whiplash Injuries are the most common injury associated with auto accidents. This type of injury can occur even in low-speed collisions, particularly rear-ending, and may cause stiffness and pain in the neck, shoulders, arms, or upper and lower back.
- Back Injuries such as herniated discs, fractured vertebrae, sprains and strains are another common consequence of car crashes. Damage to the spine can cause chronic back pain and disability; working with your chiropractor is the best way to prevent lasting damage and achieve effective back pain relief.
- Joint Injuries commonly occur when the body is jostled or jolted in an accident. Chiropractic treatment can restore joint mobility and relieve pain, as well as prevent chronic conditions such as accident-related arthritis from developing over time.
How are car accident injuries treated:
The findings from your examination need to be documented immediately after your accident to determine the appropriate treatment necessary for optimum recovery.
The exact regimen of treatment will vary depending upon the patient and type of injury sustained, but injuries typically helped by Dr. Spears include neck pain, whiplash, back pain, or any other musculoskeletal discomfort. Treatment may include a combination of hands-on stretching or strengthening exercises as well as other techniques.
Dr. Spears works with patients to develop a customized series of exercises to help them regain muscle strength and flexibility. Building strength is just as important as regaining range of motion. Passive and active care therapy regimens include a mixture of exercises to achieve both of these goals.
