Auto Accident Injury

Auto Accident Injury Treatment

An auto accident injury can happen to drivers, passengers, and just about anyone who traverses the roadways. If this sudden, unforeseen event should happen to you, our Harrisburg chiropractor can play an integral role in your recovery. The comprehensive joint, spine, and soft tissue therapies we provide at Skocik Chiropractic go beyond the temporary relief patients may get from habit-forming pharmaceutical drugs. Instead, chiropractic care addresses the root cause of pain and musculoskeletal imbalances caused by neck, back, or spine injuries.

Common Auto Crash Injuries

The type and severity of the injury depend on certain factors, such as whether it was a single-car crash, side-impact, rear-end, or head-on collision. Among the most common injuries seen are:

  • Neck injuries- whiplash
  • Spinal cord damage or compression
  • Joint injuries- fractured or broken shoulder, wrist, pelvis, or knee
  • Spine or back injuries- dislocated bones, herniated discs, or compression fractures
  • Head injuries- concussion, skull fracture, or head wounds
  • Soft tissue injuries- bruises, muscle strains, tendon sprains, or ligament tears

Typical Auto Accident Injury Symptoms

Your chiropractor in Harrisburg may ask about the following symptoms caused by injury or trauma:

  • Body aches
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Blurry vision or dizziness
  • Dull or sharp neck, shoulder, or back pain
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Pain that radiates to the arms, chest, abdomen, or low back

Spinal cord injuries can pinch a nerve and cause sciatica symptoms such as low back pain, limited movement, and numbness or tingling in the lower extremities.

Chiropractic Care in Harrisburg for Auto Accident Injury

Dr. Skocik will do a comprehensive exam of the body and spine. Your treatment plan is then personalized to minimize the risk of long-term damage and increase range of motion.

Chiropractic Adjustments: Disabling back or neck pain can be corrected with pain-free spinal adjustments. Your chiropractor will gently manipulate the joints, bones, and tissue to realign the spine and relieve restrictions. Realignment also restores communication between the brain and the spinal cord.

Spinal Decompression: Decompression therapy is a non-surgical technique performed using motorized traction. It releases the pressure on the spinal cord, lengthens the vertebrae, and reposition the injured discs between the backbones. Spinal decompression is especially beneficial for relieving disc and sciatic nerve pain.

Massage may be administered to optimize the results of spine treatments. It is beneficial for relieving muscle stiffness or spasms, increasing circulation, and improving flexibility.
