Common Car Accident Injuries

The excessive force of car crashes can cause many kinds of injuries including:

Injuries to the back, neck, and spinal cord are the most common, and they need prompt treatment to ensure they don’t become chronic problems in the future.

At Impact Medical Wesley Chapel, we offer the following treatments to help our patients recover after accidents.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors treat many injuries following accidents that are caused by subluxations—meaning that your vertebrae are out of position—that can cause pain in the neck, back, hips, and other parts of the body.

Through spinal adjustments, chiropractors can align the spine, fostering healing and relief in inflamed joints throughout the body.

Physical Therapy

Damage and injuries from a car crash can cause inflammation of the nerves and muscles, causing a limited range of motion and pain. Physical therapy can help encourage healing and strengthing, so the body can heal properly.

Our favorite physical therapy modalities include:

  • Stretching
  • Exercise
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Traction
  • Joint mobilization
  • Ultrasound
  • Heat and ice therapy
  • Laser therapy
  • Water therapy

All of these are designed to safely and effectively improve endurance, strength, and range of motion following an accident.

Manual Therapy

Soft tissue damage often results from the force caused by two cars colliding. Manual therapy can help relieve muscle tension by increasing the circulation of blood to the injured tissues.

Many manual therapies can be effective including:

  • Effleurage (circular motions made with the palm)
  • Petrissage (also known as deep tissue therapy and uses kneading, skin rolling, and wringing)
  • Trigger point therapy

When used in conjunction with chiropractic care and physical therapy, manual therapy can enhance relaxation and reduce inflammation, helping the body heal faster.

Interventional Pain Management

If other treatments and modalities have not worked to treat your pain after an auto accident, instead of using prescription drugs, we recommend interventional pain management which uses injections and other minimally invasive procedures to manage pain.

Common types of interventional pain management treatments include:

  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Radiofrequency ablation (RFA)
  • Facet joint injections
  • Percutaneous discectomy
  • Selective nerve root blocks
  • And more!

It’s important to note that these treatments may offer immediate relief, but they may fully address the issue of the pain depending on your injury, pain level, symptoms, etc.
