Auto Accident doctor in Austin, TX
If you've been involved in an automobile accident, we encourage you to contact our Austin, TX chiropractors at Whitehead Chiropractic. Our Austin auto injury doctors can help diagnose any injuries that you may have received and attributed them to the automobile accident. This is critical when it comes to insurance coverage and in any potential legal action that may result. While any legal claims can take months or years to conclude, having documentation soon following your accident is very important.
Dr. Wendee Whitehead will provide a complete initial consultation, exam, diagnosis, and prescribe a treatment program, and document it every step of the way. Documentation, however, is just one reason to see our Austin chiropractor promptly.
When you seek care quickly, damage can be limited, perhaps preventing a life of chronic pain. Treatment benefits are maximized, pain is relieved sooner, and the odds of complete success increase. Even if you only experience some initial soreness or stiffness, it may be an indication of more significant issues. A visit to Whitehead Chiropractic can help provide peace of mind.
Common Car Accident Injuries
Auto accidents and trauma are a common cause of misalignment of your upper two neck vertebrae creating a potential “CHOKE” point. This can result in a decrease in circulation and nerve function to your brain. If you have had an accident and you’re suffering with:
· Neck Pain
· Shoulder pain
· Pain between your Shoulders
· TMJ or Jaw pain
· Blurred Vision
· Ringing in your Ears
·Low Back Pain
One of the most common auto accident injuries is whiplash, a straining of the neck. This often occurs in an auto accident because, in the sudden impact of many incidents, the head can move rapidly back and forth or side to side on the neck. This can cause a variety of issues ranging from headaches and sleeplessness to immobility of the neck and/or shoulder area. An auto accident can also create disc problems and can cause trauma to the neuromuscular system in the neck and spine. Because this is such a complex system, it can affect other areas of the body, including tingling or numbness in the extremities. If you experience any of these symptoms, see our Austin chiropractor immediately.
