Car Accident Injuries and the Risk of Concussion

If you've recently been involved in a car accident, no matter how major or minor, it's important to realize that concussion and whiplash are two of the most common injuries related to auto accidents. Even if you're not experiencing symptoms of these injuries now, it's important to be aware of them so you can be on the lookout in the days following your incident.

At Chiropractic Partners, we offer chiropractic services in the Raleigh area to treat any number of conditions, including injuries related to an auto accident.

Signs of Concussion and Whiplash

Signs of a concussion don't always show up right away following an accident, so it's important to be vigilant in the days following. Some of the most common symptoms of a concussion include sudden headaches and neck pain, confusion, changes in sleep patterns, fatigue, and nausea.

Whiplash symptoms tend to show up anywhere from 24 to 72 hours following an accident. The most common symptom of whiplash is back and neck pain, though some people will also experience muscle tightness, numbness or tingling, and sudden headaches or migraines.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

If you notice any of these symptoms after your auto injury, the first thing you'll want to do is seek medical and chiropractic care. After all, there are a number of chiropractic treatments that may be helpful in providing you with the pain relief you need. For instance, spinal adjustment and decompression can often be useful in re-aligning the spine and relieving pain from whiplash.  Here in our offices, we have the technology and the skilled staff available to help you find the relief you need from your symptoms.
