If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident in Goodyear, AZ or surrounding communities, we can help! At Desert West Chiropractic, we understand the overwhelming pain that a person can experience after a car or motorcycle accident. Even a minor car accident can leave a lasting impression. While some people experience pain right away, some people don’t experience pain for days or possibly weeks after the accident. Our experienced Car Accident Chiropractors in Goodyear, AZ know the unique physiological effects or trauma a car accident can have on a person’s body. Those aches and pains you are experiencing are an indication that the spine may have suffered damage. From your neck to your lower back, the spine is rather delicate and vulnerable to injury. If ignored, the pain may go away, but the damaged area may not heal properly leaving you subject to discomfort in the future.
Neck pain, headaches, back pain, shoulder pain, and hip pain are some of the most common symptoms after a car accident. During a car accident, the sudden and forceful impact causes the body to move in several directions. The medical term for this is hyperflexion/hyperextension or more commonly referred to as whiplash. Depending on the severity of the impact, the muscles, tendons, and ligaments are forcefully overstretched causing strains or even tearing. This tearing in the soft tissues of the neck and/or back muscles can cause immediate or delayed pain and stiffness. High-speed motor vehicle accidents often result in more serious injuries and the symptoms which usually accompany such accidents may include back and neck pain, severe headaches, anxiety, fatigue, numbness, irritability and more.
If you or a family member has been in a car accident, give us a call as soon as possible at (623) 935-2929! We will work with your insurance company and/or attorney to arrange the financial means to get you well.
Treating Car Accident Patients
When you schedule your first appointment here at Desert West Chiropractic, we will start by going through a series of tests to better understand the extent of your injuries. We are sensitive to the pain and discomfort you might be experiencing so we try to be as efficient as possible through our evaluation. While each treatment plan is unique, we utilize a special technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics® to restore your spine back to its proper alignment. We use the data collected from your initial visit to create a customize treatment plan which may consist of a series of spinal adjustments, therapeutic exercises, physical therapy, and intersegmental traction to put you on a pain-free road to better health. Our obvious goal is to relieve the pain as soon as possible after your car accident and most patients can start seeing relief after just one treatment!
Isn’t Medication Enough?
To answer that simply, no. Medications are used to temporarily relieve the symptoms, it is not a permanent fix. Medication has done nothing to fix the underlying problem which is typically some form of structural damage. If left untreated, this can lead to future issues which can be much more difficult and painful to treat.
