Auto Accident Injury
Some people can walk away completely uninjured from a car accident. But other times, a car accident may leave the driver in debilitating pain if the crash is forceful enough. That doesn’t mean that you have to live out the rest of your life in pain. Dr. Richard L Hruby, Jr. with Hruby Chiropractic Wellness, located in Greenfield, WI, is there for you when accidents happen. Your trusted chiropractor is experienced with finding the right treatment plan unique to a patient’s problem.
Whiplash is the most common injury from an auto accident. According to Mayo Clinic, “whiplash is a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip.” When a part of the body is whipped back and then forward beyond its normal range of motion, micro-tears form in the surrounding ligaments. Usually, it’s when the micro-tears start to swell that the symptoms begin. Symptoms of whiplash include:
-Neck pain and stiffness
-Low back pain
-Limited range of motion of the neck
Chiropractic care not only treats these symptoms but corrects the root of the problem as well. A chiropractor takes a more holistic approach to treatment and avoids using drugs that only treat symptomatically. Dr. Hruby helps relieve pain, restore mobility, and support long-term healing with a variety of techniques.
