Back & Neck Injuries

Treating Back Pain And Neck Pain After Accident

When we think about car accident injuries, the first thing to come to mind is a serious collision on the highway attended by paramedics and multiple first responders. It is all too easy to discount a fender bender as a “minor inconvenience” rather than the potential cause of serious injury. Just because you do not go to the hospital in an ambulance, however, does not mean that your car accident has not caused serious damage to your body. Musculoskeletal injuries affecting the neck and back can occur in accidents with speeds as slow as 5mph. A comprehensive diagnostic exam and chiropractic care is essential to identifying and treating these injuries before chronic pain develops.

Treatments That Can Help With Back Pain After Auto Accident

How Does Chiropractic Care Help Back Pain?

Whiplash injuries are the most common cause for neck pain. This injury occurs when the ligaments that support the vertebra in the neck are torn. The joints covered by these ligaments, known as the facet joints, are especially vulnerable to whiplash injuries. Nearby muscles and tendons may also be stretched beyond their normal limit, leading to additional pain and reduced mobility. The most common whiplash symptoms are pain and stiffness in the neck. Headaches at the base of the skull are common. Your neck injury pain may extend to stiffness and soreness in the shoulders and down the arms. You may experience dizziness, difficulty swallowing, nausea and blurred vision. While some of these symptoms may resolve themselves naturally, the neck pain and headache pain will not simply “go away”. In some cases, your pain may persist for months or even years.

How Does Cold Laser Therapy Help Back Pain?

Back pain is also common after a car accident injury. While seat belts are an incredibly important lifesaving device, in order to do their job, seatbelts hold your body in place and prevent the spine from moving naturally in response to the force of an accident. Consequently, the force of impact in conjunction with the seatbelt restraint may result in a spinal misalignment or herniated disc. Once the spine is knocked out of alignment, the misaligned disc or discs can place pressure on nearby nerves, triggering additional pain. Chiropractic adjustments can bring proper alignment back to the spine and alleviate this pain.

Spinal Remodeling For Back Pain Injuries

While back and neck injuries from an auto accident cannot be prevented, a prompt diagnostic exam and effective care can help to prevent serious back and neck pain. Since delayed back pain and neck pain is common following a car accident injury, it is all too easy to believe you are “uninjured” and neglect to seek treatment. Unfortunately, failing to seek prompt treatment can lead to months and years of chronic pain. Chiropractic adjustments help to correct the underlying spinal misalignments that exacerbate your pain. Together with physiotherapy, these treatments naturally relieve back and neck pain and bring a fuller range of mobility back to the body.

I have seen their Nashville accident and injury center from a year now for just preventative maintenance. There has been a tremendous improvement on my overall fitness and energy levels compared to before. I can’t thank them enough. The auto accident I was in reallytook a toll on my life but thanks to these Dr. Bearden and his team for the great chiropractic care and a very supportive nature.

If you are searching for auto accident injury treatment in Nashville, then you should give them a call. I was grappling with so much neck pain for nearly a year after my accident. Tried so many approaches whether its physical therapy, medicines or massage but all of them were only short term relief. Within a short period of time, I could tell an enormous breakthrough with my pain levels and after 2 and a half months was off my meds and sleeping well again. Only wish I found them sooner.

From the years of strenuous workout of power lifting and squats, my spine was exhausted. After months of suffering with chronic, re-occuring pain, I scheduled an appointment with their center. Right off the bat, they addressed all of my concerns re: Insurance and ability to pay and what to expect from one week to the next. After a month of treatment I was back in the gym at a capacity I hadn’t achieved for several years. I am optimistic this has saved me from future back surgery and having to resort to pain management. I tell everybody at my gym to try this first before resorting to other dangerous methods recommended to me by the other people.

2 years ago, I was brutally hit by a car which caused me immense neck pain and sciatica. Dr. Bearden and Dr. Josh were great at fixingmy spinal alignment with their gentle traction method and rehab. I was lucky to find them and hopefully avoid any future chronic pain down the road.

Their spinal decompression therapy ended up being the best therapy for my grandfather. In fact, he wasn’t able to sit properly and donormal work around the house. But because of these great folks, he is now doing everything on his own without any support of a family member.

I found this clinic after being turned away from my regular doctors office because of “third party pay” after my car accident. Their Insurance dep’t was helpful in assisting me with resolving my case so that I could focus on my health and overall recovery.

Nashville accident and injury center treatment plans are quite easy to follow for treating the pain and ache in the body. I went to this doctor at the hard time of Covid; each and every staff member had taken a proper precaution while wearing a masks and gloves. Overall I am impressed with the careful measures they have taken. Within a few sessions, they reduced the back problem from my back and neck. It was an effective treatment and I strongly referring them high enough.
