Treating Pain Triggered By Car Accidents.
When you find yourself in a vehicle accident, pain from injuries often doesn’t appear up until hours, days and even weeks afterwards. Many people walk away from auto accidents “without a scratch” only to endure crippling pain, neck strain or headaches much later.
It’s actually quite typical for pain and injuries after a motor vehicle accident to remain undetected for a long period of time.
A Common Response to Trauma.
That’s because when you find yourself in a crash, the body automatically secretes defensive hormones which include adrenaline that are natural anesthetics. Occasionally, people go into a state of shock after an crash, leaving them unsusceptible to pain or other symptoms of injuries.
It’s only hours or even days later– after the body’s natural defenses subside– that they begin to recognize that they were hurt in the crash.
Post-Traumatic Pain Indications.
Some of the most common symptoms you can experience several hours after a motor vehicle accident include:
- Moderate to Agonizing pain in the back, neck or head.
- Difficulty breathing or inhaling deeply.
- Discomfort while urinating.
- Numbness or tingling that doesn’t go away after a few minutes.
If you experience these or other painful symptoms, it’s time to seek medical treatment immediately.
Where to Turn for Support.
Many injuries linked to car or truck accidents relate to the spinal column. Vehicle accidents can cause the spine to go out of its natural balance, causing dull pains in the back and neck, muscle spasms, headaches and other painful problems.
Fortunately, gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment can address imbalances in the spinal column, vertebrae, discs and nerves gently yet effectively. In many instances, just a few sessions with our spinal doctor is enough to relieve pain caused by auto accidents and other injuries quickly and permanently.
An Effective Treatment for Car Accident Pain.
Mild, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment works as a natural, integrated treatment for back pain. It utilizes a series of small mild decompressions that take the pressure off the discs in your spine. As this pressure is relieved, the nerves within these discs relax, producing the reduction or elimination of back pain.
Combined with soft tissue therapy, mild, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment is one of the fastest and most reliable ways to significantly reduce or eliminate back pain triggered by car accidents and other traumatic injuries. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is also helpful at treating back pain, neck strain, headaches and other sources of disc conditions triggered by aging, work-related injuries, and other causes.
