Instead, our chiropractors in West Des Moines seek to heal your injuries to help naturally reduce your symptoms.
Common Injuries from Auto Accidents
Dr. White and Dr. Kramer treat a wide variety of car accident injuries such as:
- Whiplash – Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries. It happens when your head is forcefully whipped back and forth during the accident. This causes all the muscles and ligaments to become injured, and it can even misalign the vertebrae in your neck, causing neck stiffness and pain.
- Back Injuries – You may also injure your back during the accident. Common back injuries after a car accident include herniated discs and sprains and strains.
- Joint Injuries – It is not uncommon to experience wrist and shoulder injuries during a car accident. Your shoulder becomes injured as a result of the seat belt holding it back while the rest of your body continues to move slightly forward. Wrist injuries occur when someone is holding onto the steering wheel or a manual shifter.
Symptoms of Car Crash Injuries
Symptoms of car crash injuries may take a few days to fully manifest. In order to ensure the best outcome possible, our chiropractor recommends scheduling an appointment within 72 hours of your accident.
