Harrisburg PA Car Accident Recovery

Harrisburg, PA chiropractic care after an auto injuryYear after year, we've cared for many men and women suffering with pain after a car accident in our Harrisburg, PA office. Chiropractic adjustments are the perfect approach to these kinds of problems, and some research shows that more than 90% of patients show improvement after a car accident when getting chiropractic care.

A crash subjects your body to high-speed, violent movement that it isn't intended to deal with. Because of the dramatic stresses you're exposed to, the ligaments, tendons, nerve fibers, and muscle tissue of your body can be stretched, sprained, or torn during a crash. This can result in persistent pain and disability if not treated promptly.

From our practical experience and success treating auto injury cases, we've seen these common signs and symptoms in our patients:

  • Headache - Practically every auto injury patient in our clinic reports headache pain, and this can have a wide array of causes, depending on the type of injury you had.
  • Back ache - Another prevalent problem in adults and especially after a car accident.
  • Neck aches and pains - Your cervical spine is one of the most at risk areas of your whole body in a car wreck, and it can very easily be injured. In point of fact, most symptoms that develop after a collision can be specifically linked to injury of the neck.
  • Shoulder problems - Your shoulder can be injured by the seatbelt, the forces on your arm during a crash, or can be a secondary symptom triggered by neck injury.
  • TMJ symptoms - Jaw problems (or TMJ dysfunction) are another common symptom we see in our Harrisburg, PA clinic, and can be difficult to diagnose. In some cases TMJ problems doesn't show up for many weeks or months after your injury.
  • Radicular pain - Radicular pain can be confirmed by pins and needles or tingling in your arms, hands, or legs, and many auto accident patients experience this symptom.
  • Vertigo or Dizziness - This is a challenging symptom that can also have a range of causes. In most cases, we find that neck trauma is the primary source of this problem.
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome - This is another symptom caused by damage to your neck during a collision.

If you're enduring any of these problems after an automobile accident, give our clinic a call. It's important for you to know that you don't have to suffer! Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, and non-invasive approach that really works for these types of accidents.

If you've been injured recently, it's important that you seek treatment right away. With no treatment injuries can contribute to decreased mobility and the formation of scar tissue, and that can lead to long-term pain and disability. Studies show that early, gentle mobilization of the damaged tissues can boost recovery and reduce the risk of long-term problems.

Our office is conveniently located in Harrisburg, PA, and we would love to help you get back on the road to health. Give our clinic a call right now at (717) 657-2561 for an appointment.
