Auto Accident Injury

Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries in Harrisburg

Millions of Americans are victims of car accidents every year. While fender benders and similar accidents may seem minor, injured victims may suffer chronic back and neck pain if they fail to receive proper care. This is because whiplash and other auto accident injuries can even occur in accidents at surprisingly slow speeds. Auto injury pain is a serious problem that can affect your sleeping patterns, work performance and ability to enjoy an active lifestyle.

If you’re a recent victim of an auto accident injury, our Harrisburg chiropractor is here to help. Even if your injury is years old and the pain has become chronic, we can help you recover with our proven holistic approaches.

Limitations of Traditional Treatment for Whiplash Injuries

Whiplash occurs when the force of a rear impact “whips” your neck back and forth. This abrupt movement can knock the cervical spine out of alignment while straining the soft tissue muscles in your neck. As a result, many patients experience soreness, stiffness, chronic neck pain, headaches and migraines. The injury can sometimes even cause sleep disturbances, difficulty concentrating and pain when performing physical activities.

Traditional whiplash treatments include immobilizing the neck and taking prescription painkillers to mask the pain. Unfortunately, both of these treatments have limited effectiveness. Our Harrisburg chiropractor doesn’t promote immobilizing the neck for extended periods because this decreases blood flow to injured muscles. Plus, taking prescription painkillers can lead to dangerous addiction.

Chiropractic Care for Whiplash and Recurring Headaches in Harrisburg

When the spine is compressed, pressure on the nerves causes radiating pain, which can also trigger recurring headaches. At Skocik Chiropractic, we provide spinal adjustments to address the underlying issue and promote internal healing without the need for medication. Chiropractic adjustments fix your spine’s curvature, restoring space between the vertebrae and relieving pain in the process. Gentle, manual adjustments are safe and highly effective for auto accident injury pain relief.

Corrective Exercises and Massage Therapy for Auto Accident Injuries

In addition to spinal adjustments, Dr. Skocik may also recommend corrective exercises and massage therapy to treat your injury. Gentle exercises help restore mobility to the spine and promote good circulation, which is important for healing.

Therapeutic massage offers similar benefits. Kneading sore and stiff muscle tissue releases tension, which relieves pain. Massaging the shoulders and neck also increases circulation. By integrating corrective exercises and massage therapy with chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Skocik offers enhanced pain relief.

Contact Our Chiropractor in Harrisburg for Auto Accident Injury Treatment

If you’ve been in an auto accident, even a minor one, don’t delay treatment. Many people forego evaluation after an accident only to suffer from chronic pain later on. A prompt diagnosis and accurate care from our Harrisburg chiropractor safely treats your injury and provides much-needed pain relief.
