Nashville, TN Auto Accident Recovery

Throughout the years, we've cared for many people with auto injury pain in our Nashville, TN clinic. Chiropractic is the perfect approach to these kinds of problems, and some research shows that over 90% of patients show improvement after a whiplash injury when getting chiropractic.

A crash subjects you to rapid, violent movement that it wasn't designed to deal with. Due to the dramatic stresses you're subjected to, the ligaments, tendons, nerve fibers, and muscle tissue of the body can be stretched, sprained, or torn during a crash. This can lead to chronic pain and impairment if not treated promptly.

From our practical experience and success treating auto injury cases, we've seen these common symptoms in our patients:

  • Headache - Nearly every car accident patient in our clinic reports headache, and this can have a wide array of origins, based upon on the type of injury you had.
  • Lumbar pain - Another prevalent problem in adults and particularly after a vehicle accident.
  • Neck pain - Your cervical spine is one of the most sensitive areas of your body in a car crash, and it can easily be sprained. The fact is, most symptoms that develop after a crash can be specifically attributed to injury of the neck.
  • Shoulder problems - Your shoulder can be injured by the seatbelt, the forces on your arm during a crash, or can be a secondary symptom triggered by neck injury.
  • TMJ symptoms - Jaw symptoms (or TMJ pain) are still another frequent problem we see in our Nashville, TN clinic, and can be difficult to diagnose. In some cases TMJ problems doesn't manifest for many weeks or months after your injury.
  • Radiating pain - Radicular pain can be identified by numbness or prickling in your arms, hands, or legs, and many auto injury patients suffer from this symptom.
  • Dizziness or Vertigo - This is a challenging symptom that can also have a wide range of causes. In most cases, we find that neck trauma is the primary source of this symptom.
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome - This is another symptom caused by damage to your neck during a collision.

If you're struggling with any of these symptoms after an injury, give our clinic a call. It's important for you to know that you don't have to suffer! Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, and non-invasive method that really works for these types of injuries.

If you've been injured recently, it's important that you seek treatment quickly. With no treatment injuries can lead to reduced range of motion and the development of scar tissue, and that can lead to persistent pain and disability. Studies show that early, gentle mobilization of the damaged tissues can boost recovery and prevent chronic problems.

Our office is conveniently located in Nashville, TN, and we would love to help you get back on the road to recovery. Give the doctor a call now at (615) 331-7040 for an appointment.
