Auto Injuries Q & A

What are common auto injuries?

Auto accidents can cause a range of painful conditions, even if the accident is minor. When left untreated, some auto injuries can become chronic and lead to disability or other long-term complications.

Whiplash is a common auto injury that results from the forceful back-and-forth movement of your head. The condition causes symptoms like neck pain and headaches. 

Other types of auto injuries include:

  • Spine injuries
  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Dislocated joints

Health Advantage Physical Medicine offers comprehensive chiropractic care for auto injuries in adults and children. Acupuncture and other therapeutic services can ease symptoms of auto injuries and support your overall recovery from an accident.

When should I seek medical attention for auto injuries?

Schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Health Advantage Physical Medicine after any type of auto accident, even if you’re not having unusual symptoms.

It’s possible to have a sprain, strain, or other auto injury but not experience pain or other issues right away. Early treatment can reduce your risk for more serious complications that auto accidents can cause.

X-rays, ultrasounds, and other diagnostic tests onsite can provide the answers you need about your health right away. Based on the results of your evaluation and tests, your chiropractor creates a treatment plan to support your recovery from an auto accident.

What treatments are available for auto injuries?

Health Advantage Physical Medicine provides a range of services to address pain and other symptoms of auto injuries.

If you have soft tissue injuries from an auto accident, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can stimulate your body’s natural healing processes. PRP injections trigger the growth of new tissue to heal tears in muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
