An auto accident can do some extraordinary damage -- and not just to your car. Impacts on this scale can place sudden, immense loads on the musculoskeletal system, throwing it out of balance and leaving you with painful injuries such as whiplash, seat belt injuries, sciatica and more. To make things even more complicated, these debilitating symptoms may take their time appearing, causing you to neglect the treatment your body so desperately needs. That's why it's so important to get your spine evaluated at Eulo Chiropractic Center. Our Sewell chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Eulo, can identify any auto injuries -- even the hidden ones -- and correct them with natural techniques to relieve pain and restore physical function.
As remarkable as the human body is, it can't protect itself against the forces transferred in an auto collision. Even when such a massive vehicle is traveling at only a few miles per hour, a sudden stop can prove harmful. That's because momentum is still moving the body, twisting it and throwing it around in the cabin. The resulting problems may include:
Back pain - Twisting of the trunk beneath a three-point harness can produce painful thoracic joint misalingment and muscle damage.
Low back pain - Lower back pain occurs when the jolt of the accident dislocates the lumbar vertebrae and allows discs to herniate painfully.
Leg pain - The same disc herniation that causes low back pain can also press against the sciatic nerve roots. This causes leg pain, tingling and numbness (sciatica).
Neck pain and whiplash - An auto impact can throw your head back and forth violently enough to cause whiplash. This injury of the cervical spine and neck tissues causes neck pain, headaches, hand and arm pain, dizziness, tinnitus and other symptoms.
Shoulder pain - Torn muscles and pinched nerves in the cervical spine can refer pain to the shoulder. The shoulder itself may be wrenched by sharp twisting forces.
Once we've pinpointed your injuries, our chiropractor can prescribe a variety of conservative treatment techniques. For instance:
If you're in the Sewell, Turnersville, Williamstown, Blackwood, and Glassboro areas and you've been in an auto accident, don't assume that your fine or that symptoms you're experiencing will simply go away on their own.
