Auto Accident Injury

Our Joplin Chiropractor Can Speed Up Auto Accident Recovery

Regardless of how minor a car accident may seem at the time it occurs, seeking chiropractic care right away can save you serious pain down the road. You might experience pain right away, especially in cases of whiplash, but often issues like herniated discs can take days or weeks to begin sourcing pain. Here at Skaggs Chiropractic in Joplin, MO we can help you experience auto accident recovery much quicker than traditional doctors with our natural methods.

What Are Common Car Accident Injuries?

Whiplash: whiplash is the most common injury sustained during a car accident. The sudden stopping of forwarding motion causes your head to ‘whip’ forward and then backward and this jolt can tear the tiny muscles in the neck resulting in major pain. We offer whiplash treatment that doesn’t involve painful surgical procedures or prescription medication. Our whiplash treatment uses the power of chiropractic care to heal you holistically.

 Disc Herniations: another common condition we see are disc herniations in the spine. These are small bulges that put pressure on the nerves in the spine and cause chronic and acute pain if left untreated.

Sciatica: numbness and tingling in related nerve endings can be a side effect of disc issues from car accidents. Chiropractor treatments for auto accident recovery quickly and gently realign the spine to relieve this pressure and pain.
