Body Works Health and Wellness Treats Auto Accident Back Pain Injury

A car accident occurs in seconds, but your back pain may last for years. You do not have to suffer with back pain from an auto accident injury. Dr. Yousef Zaffarkhan, your Chicago chiropractor, has the services and treatments you need to reduce your discomfort after an auto accident. You may not feel the pain instantly if you have suffered an auto accident or whiplash, but within a few days, you may experience symptoms such as:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Upper back pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Numbness or tingling in arms or legs
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Leg or arm pain

When these symptoms are left untreated, your pain worsens and it may lead to chronic conditions such as a misalignment in your spine, muscle weakness, lasting pain, scar tissue and headaches. These can interfere with your career and your personal life. Fortunately, Dr. Yousef Zaffarkhan provides a holistic, gentle, non-invasive, chiropractic care program to eliminate your back pain and prevent future concerns.

Auto Accident Back Pain Treatments

Chiropractic adjustments are the key to overcoming back injuries from automobile accidents. When your vehicle was hit head-on, from behind, or from the side, your body reacted to the impact. As a result, your spine and the surrounding muscle tissues were forced out of place. Our chiropractor adjusts your spine and returns it to a healthy alignment. In turn, your muscles are repositioned to support this healthy posture. When we decrease pressure on the nerves that are creating pain, your discomfort improves. Our chiropractor will see you frequently at first to help your spine recover from the impact. Your visits are welcome since you leave Body Works Health & Wellness feeling better every time. Your back pain lessens and your energy level returns. We help overcome injuries to the spinal column or herniated discs that may be the result of an auto accident. Our goal is to support a healthy spine and return your body to a natural state in which healing occurs.

If your injury was specific to your neck and upper back such as in whiplash, we gently adjust your upper cervical vertebrae to alleviate your back pain. Our team at Body Works Health and Wellness provides other auto accident back pain treatments. We offer massage therapy to eliminate tension in muscles and to increase blood flow for repair to the injured tissues. In addition, our physiotherapy programs teach you exercises to support a healthy back posture. As we strengthen the muscles along your spine and those in your core, your body is able to stabilize itself and healing begins. Our alternative, holistic treatments at Body Works Health & Wellness also use acupuncture to alleviate back pain caused by an auto accident. Acupuncture frees the energy throughout your body and helps to speed the healing process.
