When you think of an auto accident, your mind may evoke images of twisted metal and shattered glass. But the human body can sustain some serious damage as well -- damage which may not be nearly as obvious or visible. Neck damage, herniated discs, and other problems can cause serious pain and loss of function, even if the immediate symptoms are delayed due to shock. That's when you'll want to turn to our skilled chiropractic team at APEX Wellness Center for non-surgical, drug-free auto injury treatment.
Even when you're moving along at a relatively slow pace, a collision impact or sudden stop can still convey a lot of force to your body. for parts of your body that are securely fastened in place by a seat belt, such as the lower back, this force may take the form of a sharp jolt that throws vertebrae or vertebral discs out of position.
In addition to severe low back pain, you might also suffer a herniated disc that pushes against the sciatic nerve, causing pain and other symptoms in your leg. In areas where only half of the body is restrained, such as your shoulders, one side of your body may be free to twist sharply, damaging vertebral joints and tissues. Since your head is free to move, it may bounce wildly at high speeds, creating the cervical damage, pain, stiffness, and neurological symptoms associated with whiplash.
Even if you have no symptoms at all, you need an immediate evaluation so we can find and treat any injuries that may be lurking silently. Our chiropractors can ease acute joint problems by making specific adjustments to restore proper alignment and function. These adjustments can also relieve the nerve compression that causes neurological symptoms in the neck, back or extremities.
Your muscles, tendons, and ligaments are also in good hands here at APEX Wellness Center. As part of your holistic healing and rehabilitation plan, we may administer techniques such as massage therapy and cold laser therapy to speed tissue repair and relieve your pain naturally. We can even provide nutritional counseling to help you minimize inflammation and maximize your body's own innate healing powers during your recuperation. Rely on us for a personalized, multi-modal treatment plan that really works.
Don't just drop your car off at the local collision center -- make sure you're seeing to your own damage as well. Call APEX Wellness Center at 972-392-9402 to get yourself evaluated and benefit from some "collision repair" to your musculoskeletal system!
