An auto accident can cause a lifetime's worth of suffering in a split second. When you're injured, you need answers -- and Laurelhurst Chiropractic can help. Take a look at these frequently asked questions about auto accident injury treatment in Portland OR.
The idea that you have to be moving at a significant speed before you can sustain an auto accident injury is incorrect. Injuries may occur at speeds of only 5 miles per hour.
When your car comes to a screeching halt, your head may not halt with it. As the weight of your head sends it flying back and then forward, hyperextension and hyperflexion of the neck produce whiplash.
Whiplash is infamous for its ability to cause debilitating neck pain and stiffness. But you may experience a variety of other symptoms as well, ranging from shoulder and jaw pain to headaches, migraines, arm pain, memory lapses and depression.
An impact to your lower back may push the lumbar vertebral joints out of their normal position. The same force can also dislodge lumbar discs, possibly causing painful disc herniation.
These symptoms indicate possible sciatica. The same shifting of lumbar structures in an auto accident that cause lower back pain can also put pressure on the sciatic nerve.
Three-point seat belts restrain one shoulder but not the other. This allows your spine to twist violently in an auto impact. Results may include vertebral subluxation, disc damage, pinched nerves and torn muscles.
Unfortunately, many people sustain "silent" injuries that only make their presence felt days or even weeks after the accident, giving the injury that much time to grow even more serious. Don't take chances -- get an immediate evaluation from your car accident chiropractor in Portland.
Your chiropractor in Portland OR, Dr. Phil McCary or Dr. Danielle McCary, will perform a thorough evaluation to pinpoint the origin point of your symptoms. This allows for immediate treatment to relieve your acute pain as quickly as possible.
Your whiplash treatment in Portland may include a combination of healing modalities that address different kinds of damage. These modalities may include cervical spinal adjustments, massage therapy and acupuncture to relieve neck pain and other symptoms.
