Chiropractic care for an auto injury at Kosak Chiropractic Auto Accident & Pain Clinic in Fairfield, CA, and Dr. MIchael Wilson can get you back on the road to recovery. An auto accident injury can be a devastating event to both your physical and mental well-being. Here's why scheduling an appointment with Dr. Wilson is just as important – if not more – than seeing your primary care physician after an auto accident.
Why Seek Chiropractic Care After an Auto Accident?
At Kosak Chiropractic Auto Accident & Pain Clinic in Fairfield, CA, Dr. Michael Wilson is an auto injury treatment specialist, so he doesn't rely solely on x-rays and MRIs to determine if you've experienced trauma from your auto accident. In many cases, auto accident injuries don't show up until well after the event occurred. Symptoms of whiplash may not occur until days after the accident. Here are some symptoms you should look out for:
- Onset of headaches/migraines
- Blurred vision
- Neck pain/stiffness
- Upper back pain
- Decreased range of motion in the neck area
Unless you've experienced a significant injury, an x-ray won't reveal micro-tears in your ligaments or muscles or scar tissue that might be forming around your injury. When you seek chiropractic care, Dr. Wilson can isolate damaged spaces and reduce or eliminate pain and inflammation from those spaces using proven treatments.
For example, Dr. Wilson can perform spinal cord realignment and manipulation to re-center your musculoskeletal system. Many car accidents result in a victim's spine getting moved out of its normal position, which can result in a host of medical problems like back pain, neck pain, joint pain and shoulder pain. Spinal manipulation, which is a non-invasive treatment, moves your spine back into a healthy position.
Chiropractic care also eliminates the need for prescription or over-the-counter medications to reduce pain after an accident. Dr. Wilson treats the underlying problem to alleviate symptoms, while medications only mask pain symptoms. Although you might get immediate relief from pain killers, they don't provide long-term solutions.
