Treating Pain Triggered By Automotive Accidents
When you are in an automotive accident, pain from injuries often doesn’t appear up until hours, days and even weeks afterwards. Many people leave vehicle accidents “without a scratch” only to endure crippling pain, neck strain or headaches much later.
It’s actually quite common for pain and injuries after an automotive accident to remain undetected for a substantial period of time.
An Instinctive Reaction to Trauma
That’s because when you are in an accident, the body automatically secretes defensive hormones specifically adrenaline that are natural anesthetics. In many case, people go into a state of shock after a collision, leaving them immune to pain or other symptoms of injuries.
It’s only hours or perhaps days later– after the body’s natural defenses wear away– that they begin to realize that they were hurt in the accident.
Post-Traumatic Pain Indications
Some of the most common symptoms you can experience several hours after a automobile accident include:
- Moderate to Agonizing pain in the back, neck or head.
- A hard time breathing or inhaling deeply.
- Discomfort while urinating.
- Feeling numb or tingling that doesn’t go away after a few minutes.
If you experience these or other painful symptoms, it’s time to seek medical treatment immediately.
Where to Turn for Help
Many injuries associated with vehicle accidents relate to the spinal column. Automobile accidents can cause the spine to go out of its natural balance, creating dull pains in the back and neck, muscle spasms, headaches and other painful conditions.
Fortunately, gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment can address imbalances in the spinal column, nerves, vertebrae and discs gently yet effectively. In many instances, just a few sessions with our spinal doctor is enough to relieve pain caused by auto accidents and other injuries quickly and permanently.
An Effective Treatment for Automobile Accident Pain
Mild, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy works as a natural, alternative treatment for back pain. It makes use of a series of small mild decompressions that take the pressure off the discs in your spine. As this pressure is eased, the nerves within these discs calm down, producing the reduction or elimination of back pain.
Combined with soft tissue therapy, mild, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment is one of the fastest and most beneficial ways to considerably reduce or eliminate back pain brought on by vehicle accidents and other traumatic injuries. Non-surgical spinal decompression treatment is also effective at treating back pain, neck strain, headaches and other sources of disc conditions brought on by aging, work-related injuries, and other causes.
