Auto Accident Injury Treatment in Las Vegas
When you are in a car accident, you’re at risk of ending up with potentially serious injuries. Even milder injuries can lead to chronic pain without the right care. Dr. Maria A. Giacalone provides chiropractic care when you need auto accident injury treatment. Find out more about how this type of care can help you recover from car accident injuries.
Common Car Accident Injury Types
Car accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, although some occur more often than others. When you are hurt in a collision, you can have head injuries, broken bones and other kinds of injuries. Some of the most common car accident injury types include the following:
- Spine injuries, including spinal cord damage, herniated discs, bulging discs and damage to muscles and other tissue in the back
- Neck injuries, such as whiplash, which occurs when your head ends up snapping back and forth suddenly during a car accident
- Injuries to other joints, such as your shoulders and knees, from torn ligaments, damaged muscles or other soft tissue injuries
Reasons to Get Prompt Care for Auto Accident Injuries
Not all auto accident injuries are apparent right after a collision. In some cases, injuries can take a while for symptoms to appear. When they do, they can quickly become worse and put you at risk of having chronic problems with the affected joint. Even when you have mild symptoms right after a car accident, you should seek care as soon as possible. Our chiropractor in Las Vegas can evaluate auto accident injuries and provide you with prompt care to support the healing process.
Chiropractic Care in Las Vegas for Car Accident Injuries
When you have car accident injuries, Dr. Giacalone offers chiropractic treatment in Las Vegas. This kind of care involves manipulating or adjusting your spine in order to bring the discs back into their proper alignment. Car accidents can cause one or more discs to become misaligned, which can contribute to the pain you experience. Restoring these discs to the right alignment allows your damaged discs or tissue to heal, which helps lower your risk of having ongoing pain.
Our chiropractor might also recommend other forms of care to help your injuries heal fully. This also helps decrease your chance of dealing with chronic pain. For example, non-surgical spinal decompression can help relieve pain associated with herniated discs that can occur during car accidents.
