Personal Injury Treatment in Salem, OR
Whether it is a fender bender or a more serious crash, the first questions that enter your mind are, "Am I okay?” and “Is everyone else okay?" In many cases, your mind will answer "yes" even if your body doesn't necessarily agree. This happens with other personal injuries as well, such as those caused by falls or using faulty products. Eventually, often the next day, the mind catches up and realizes you are in fact injured and in pain. If you haven't already called a chiropractor in Salem, Oregon it is time to do so.
Swift Action is best for Personal Injuries
Back and neck pain related to injuries such as slipped and herniated discs and whiplash are among the most common after automobile accidents, falls, and other types of accidents. Because of legal reasons in making insurance claims or filing a lawsuit, getting a proper diagnosis of your injuries as soon as possible after the accident is advisable.
At the Spine Clinic Doctors of Chiropractic in Salem, Oregon we are experienced in diagnostics and can evaluate your injuries and confirm that they were a result of whatever accident you were in. The more time that passes between the incident and your evaluation the more difficult it is to establish a strong personal injury claim. So, we encourage you to come in right away, even if it seems like you are fine.
Common Personal Injuries Treated by a Chiropractor
A wide variety of things can go wrong in the days, weeks, months, or even years following a personal injury.
Of course, recovering from a personal injury is about more than making a strong claim. It is about getting rid of as much of the associated pain as possible and getting your life back to normal. At the Spine Clinic, we understand this. Overall, those who receive some sort of physical therapy or chiropractic treatment have a much higher rate of recovery and have less long-term pain than those who are not treated. Some common ailments from accidents include:
- Whiplash - a neck injury that involves the compression of vertebrate when an abrupt force from a collision has occurred.
- Pinched Nerves- Pinched nerves can cause various problems, from headaches that radiate upward from the neck, to sciatic pain that radiates down through the sciatic nerve into the legs and feet.
- Misalignments - Accidents often simply jolt your spine out of alignment, which can damage joints and ligaments and create a lot of discomfort. At the Spine Clinic, we find the source of the pain so we can get you back on track.
