Auto Accident Injury Treatment with our Naperville Chiropractor

Woman injured from an auto accident in Naperville

At Symmetry Chiropractic & Acupuncture, expect to find a Naperville chiropractor who will treat you with the compassionate attention you deserve and the holistic care you want. We find our patients who have been in auto accidents are especially appreciative of chiropractic care since it can help them start feeling better sooner (physically and mentally) without the need for drugs or invasive procedures.

Common Auto Accident Injuries We Treat at Our Chiropractic Clinic 

Auto accident injuries can be tricky. For one thing, they can occur even in minor incidents involving speeds as slow as 10 to 15 miles per hour. Additionally, they can take a few days or weeks (sometimes months!) to show up, since fight-or-flight hormones which surge during trauma can mask pain, inflammation, and other symptoms of tissue damage.

What this tells us is that you should always consult with a chiropractor following an auto accident, because you never know what type of injury you could be dealing with, and earlier diagnosis and treatment can help you avoid a small problem from turning into a big one. 

Some common auto accident injuries we see at our facility include conditions such as:

  • Whiplash, which is a syndrome including neck stiffness, pain, headaches, and jaw dysfunction caused by the whip-like motion of the neck during an acceleration/deceleration situation
  • Shoulder pain, often due to the impact of the (very necessary) seatbelt which can cause shoulder joint dislocation, bruising, muscle strains, and brachial plexus injury (nerve damage)
  • Disc herniation and bulges, which can often cause back stiffness, back pain, and nerve impingement syndromes like sciatica (which presents with posterior leg pain and numbness)

Of course, physical and mental stress associated with car accidents can also lead to generalized joint pain, muscle aches, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, fatigue, and headaches. 

Treatments for Auto Accidents Offered by Our Chiropractor

Our chiropractor in Naperville offers several treatments for people recovering from auto accident injuries, including spinal adjustments, acupuncture, and auricular therapy. Together, these services can promote wellness at every stage of recovery: 

  • Reduce and control inflammation and swelling by stimulating circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid
  • Reduce and control pain by stimulating nerve receptors in the skin, joints, and central nervous system and by triggering the release of pain-relieving molecules within the body
  • Control and guide scar tissue formation and prevent mobility-restricting adhesions and muscle tension
  • Restore normal joint mechanics and spinal alignment to prevent recurring dysfunction
