Did you know that an auto accident in Brentwood could cause chronic neck pain, back pain and other health problems that last for months – or worse – years? If you have recently been in a car accident, treatment from our chiropractor in Brentwood can help your body heal faster after the accident. Chiropractic care is a drug-free, conservative, non-invasive treatment technique that can safely manage musculoskeletal pain after a car accident. Our Brentwood chiropractor Dr. Uzelman has been helping auto accident victims safely heal without the need for surgery or medication for more than a decade. Dr. Uzelman helps car accident victims just like you get back to living a full, active life as quickly as possible.
Even if you received emergency care following the accident, you may still benefit from a diagnostic exam with our chiropractor. Urgent care at a hospital treats obvious, visible injuries like a broken bone. Additionally, emergency care relies on medication to “mask” pain symptoms. As a result, you may initially feel better after the accident and not realize that you have serious, undiagnosed musculoskeletal injuries. Our chiropractor in is specially trained in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. Even if the car accident was a “minor” fender bender, you may still have sustained serious whiplash injuries requiring chiropractic care.
The most common auto accident injury that our chiropractor Dr. Uzelman treats is whiplash. Whiplash injuries occur when the force of a rear impact accident “whips” the cervical spine beyond its normal range of motion, straining ligaments and soft tissues in the neck. Serious whiplash injuries can occur at speeds as slow as 5mph. Injury symptoms may not be immediately obvious and can lead to treatment delays. If you experience any whiplash injury symptoms following an auto accident in Brentwood – even if the car accident is minor – schedule an immediate diagnostic exam with our chiropractor. Common whiplash symptoms include neck pain and stiffness, headaches at the base of the skull, and shoulder pain. Later, you may experience additional symptoms weeks after the accident including disordered sleep patterns, forgetfulness, mood swings, and blurred vision.
Lower back pain is also common following a car accident. As the spinal vertebrae are thrown out of alignment, the discs between them may "slip" or bulge outward onto sensitive nerve roots. The resulting nerve pressure can cause mobility restrictions, weakness, numbness and pain. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe, drug-free treatment technique for bringing correct alignment to the spine and relieving nerve compression.
While some car accident victims experience agonizing pain within hours of the accident, for most victims, their pain is delayed by days, weeks or even months. Unfortunately, this “lull” can give you a false sense of security about your health. Our Brentwood chiropractor Dr. Uzelman is trained to identify and treat musculoskeletal injuries following a car accident for complete, whole body health.
