While car accidents in Arlington only account for between one and two percent of the total car accidents in the state of Texas, the number of accidents is steadily on the rise. Obviously, this does mean that the number of car accident-related injuries is inclining as well. With this in mind, we do understand that finding a good chiropractic clinic near you can be difficult when you are in a hurry to get treatment. That is why, at our Arlington TX chiropractic office, we offer free consultations and the ability to make same day appointments.

The Department of Transportation reports that in just the two years from 2018 to 2019 in Arlington, Texas an estimated 8,724 people were injured in accidents throughout the area.

The Arlington Texas population is around 400,000. Which means there is an average annual car accident rate of around 176 crashes per 10,000 residents.

With such high margins of car accidents in our area, here are some of the most commonly asked questions related to automobile accidents. What happens if you are one of the unlucky people to be involved in a car crash in Arlington, TX? What sort of treatments can a chiropractor nearby offer you for the injuries you may sustain? Let us find out about some of the most frequent injuries experienced in auto accidents and the treatments available from Premier Injury Clinics of DFW to remedy them.

Whiplash After a Car Accident

Whiplash is a neck injury that is caused by sudden movements of the head that often occur as the result of an abrupt stop during an auto accident. Whiplash is most commonly caused by a rear end automobile accident but can be the result of other traumas. For this to occur, soft tissues in the neck that support the head become stretched and damaged. Fortunately, the recovery time is fairly short. This injury will often recover within a few short weeks or months.

Symptoms of Whiplash

The most common symptoms of whiplash are:

  • Pain and tenderness of the neck
  • Stiffness of the neck and a difficulty moving it freely.
  • Headaches and muscle spasms
  • Pain that spreads into the casualty's arms and shoulders

Treating Whiplash

Generally speaking, whiplash heals itself after time. Although, there are some instances where treatment is required. For example, if your symptoms continue for several weeks or even months, it is recommended to seek the nearest chiropractor for professional assistance. Local chiropractors can provide you with a variety of techniques to alleviate your pain such as massages, gentle manipulation of your neck, and neck exercises for you to do at home. Premier Injury Clinics will create an individualized physical therapy program designed to address your specific health issues following an auto accident.

Back Pain After a Car Accident

If you are involved in a car crash, chances are you will have back pain afterwards. It is a very common side effect of being involved in an auto accident. There are many types of back pain that can emerge as a result of being involved in a crash, such as muscle strain, whiplash and various spinal injuries. Refer to the bottom of this page to learn more about these injury types and how chiropractors near you can help.

Managing an Injury With an Auto Accident Doctor

Whiplash and back injuries can disrupt your work and recreational activities, causing loss of income and severe pain.  This commonly requires immediate medical care and a lengthy rehabilitation. The time off work from this rehabilitation can have a negative impact on your finances, as well as your quality of life. Engaging with a chiropractor near you can help reduce your recovery time and improve your quality of life dramatically.

Lumbar Sprains

Sprains in the lumbar region can occur as a result of a car crash. Lumbar sprain is caused when the strong bands of tissue that hold your bones together are torn from their attachments. These injuries occur when tendons, muscles, or ligaments in the back stretch more than they are designed to. This excessive stretching is commonly referred to as a strain or a sprain. These types of injuries generally need to be diagnosed by a chiropractor in your area, such as one of the team at Premier Injury Clinics of DFW.


Disc Herniation

An injury to the discs that separate your vertebrae are known as disc herniation. These are common injuries during trauma suffered in auto accidents due to the impact of the crash. While many people do not find the initial rupture painful, the aftereffect when it meets the surrounding nerves is frequently an agonizing experience. A herniated disc can be extremely uncomfortable and is often an injury that you find a chiropractor near you to treat. 

Good news is that while a herniated disk can be very distressing, most people experience relief within just a few weeks or months of nonsurgical treatment.

 


Spinal Stenosis

Spinal Stenosis can occur after a car crash or other similar trauma. It refers to a narrowing of the bone channel that is home to the spinal cord and nerves. When spinal stenosis is inflicted as the result of a car crash, it is often due to a ruptured disc or a fragment of bone that has impeded on the spine canal and is now pressuring the nerves, causing pain and / or discomfort. While some of those with spinal stenosis may not experience symptoms, others could notice numbness or muscle weakness that increases over time. To avoid such increases, it is best to find a chiropractor open near you right away.

Should you be experiencing any of the grievances mentioned previously, we do suggest that you find out where is the nearest chiropractor and seek treatment as soon as possible.  Call us and book an appointment or visits our clinics for a walk-in chiropractor near you.
