If you suffer an auto injury, seeking medical attention is critical to your recovery. Emergency care is typically the first step in diagnosing and treating your injury. However, you may not realize the effects of your injury for weeks, even months, after the initial collision.
Once inflammation sets in, you may experience pain, stiffness, and soreness that limits your mobility and range of motion. The experienced chiropractors and interventional pain specialists at Liberty HealthCare provide comprehensive care for auto injuries to help you recover quickly and safely.
Several types of injuries can occur after an auto accident, including:
Whiplash is a neck injury that develops when the head snaps back and forth rapidly. This sudden movement strains, sometimes tears, the tissues that support the neck. While mild whiplash symptoms can resolve on their own with over-the-counter pain relievers, many cases require medical treatment to reduce neck pain, stiffness, headaches, and limited range of motion.
Muscle sprains and strains can cause pain, limited movement, and soreness that interfere with your recovery. While muscle sprains can occur anywhere after an auto accident, they commonly affect the neck, back, and shoulders.
Spinal fractures are cracks or breaks in the small bony structures in your spine. These cracks can range from mild to severe. Early intervention is essential to diagnose and treat fractures after a spinal injury.
The practitioners at Liberty HealthCare use multiple tools to evaluate auto injuries. After reviewing your medical history, the providers perform a comprehensive physical exam. They may also order imaging scans, such as X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and bloodwork to gather more information about your condition.
