Auto Accident Injury Treatment in Portland & Beaverton, OR
When you get into an auto accident, it may result in uncomfortable and painful injuries. Depending on the severity of your accident and injuries, the treatment plan to address your concerns may vary. At Devine Chiropractic, we recognize the risks associated with auto accidents and we offer solutions to help with the recovery process.
Common Injuries from a Car Accident
The injuries you face during an accident depend on the situation. Even a minor accident on the road may result in physical pain, discomfort and injuries to your body.
Common injuries that may occur during an accident include:
- Back pain
- Sprains and strains to the muscles of your body
- Cuts and bruises
- Broken bones
- Head injuries, including concussions or bleeding
- Chest injuries, including injuries from the steering wheel or the seat-belt
Most injuries you notice shortly after the accident; however, some injuries may not be obvious for a few hours to a few days after the accident. For example, whiplash may not show obvious signs for 24 to 48 hours. Seeking treatment after an auto accident in Beaverton or Portland allows you to address the injuries before they worsen.
Addressing Pain With Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care helps with back or neck pain by addressing the underlying cause of the discomfort. Injuries occur from the impact of a vehicle hitting another object or another vehicle. In many cases, the injury to the back or neck occurs as a direct result of a pull on the muscles, a slipped disc or poor alignment.
During treatment, a chiropractor in our clinic evaluates your needs. We identify the cause of your pain and then focus on adjustments, decompression therapy and other tools that allow us to address the situation. We may use stretches, exercises and lifestyle recommendations to help your body heal from the injuries. We focus on your goals and provide solutions to help with long-term recovery.
