Seat Belt Injuries in Chicago, IL

Have you recently been involved in an auto accident? If you have and it appears you may not be injured, you could have still sustained an injury.  Spinal injuries are among the most common as a result of a car accident. Symptoms typically take anywhere from 24 to 72 hours before symptoms from an auto accident injury start to show.

Here at Body Work Health & Wellness, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of any number of auto injuries, ranging from neck pain and whiplash to even seat belt injuries.

Common Seat Belt Injuries Seen by Your Chicago Chiropractor

Seat Belt injuries are extremely common in auto accident s. Some of these injuries include:

  • Bruising on their chests and shoulders as a result of the impact against their seat belts
  • Sprains and strains from the upper body being thrust forward into the seatbelt while the lower spine remains stable
  • Whiplash is another common auto accident injury related to seat belts. If left untreated, whiplash can become very serious, resulting in migraines, inability to sleep, and other health issues.
  • Back and chest pain

In some cases, seat belt injuries can even include broken bones typically the collar bone or ribs

Treatment for Auto Accident Injuries by Body Works Health & Wellness

Your Chicago Chiropractor has viable treatment options available. In many cases of spinal misalignment due to a seat belt injury, a chiropractor may recommend a spinal adjustment (or series of treatments) to better align the spine and take pressure off the discs in between the vertebrae. This same treatment can often be used for instances of whiplash in addition to other injuries, such as neck pain.

In other cases, spinal decompression, massage therapy, or any number of other chiropractic techniques may also be recommended depending on the specific injuries, the extent of the injuries, and the symptoms being experienced by the patient.

What a fantastic place to go for an adjustment or a massage. The facilities are extremely clean and new. The staff is extremely friendly and professional. Dr. Z is a great chiropractor with an extensive knowledge of what ails me. He has helped me get rid of my lower back pain and really assisted with my herniated discs in my neck. Iliana is a great massage therapist, and is able to work out knots no other therapist has been able to before. I highly recommend this place for any body part that needs fixing.
