Chicago Car Accident Injury Chiropractor Treats Concussions

Have you been injured in a car accident? Did your symptoms appear days later and you’re unsure if they are related? Our Chicago chiropractor, Dr. Zaffarkhan, encourages you to visit our Body Works Health and Fitness office for evaluation. Sometimes, symptoms of head injuries such as concussions, do not appear immediately after an automobile accident. Instead, you may begin to experience symptoms within the hours or days following. We provide effective Chicago head injury treatement to ensure your recovery and eliminate your unease.

Concussion Symptoms

If your head hit the windshield, steering wheel, headrest or side window during a car accident, you may have a concussion. The impact caused your brain to shake around and leave you with concussion symptoms such as:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Disorientation
  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Ear ringing
  • Loss of memory- especially moments surrounding the accident
  • Tiredness
  • Loss of consciousness at the accident

If you are experiencing these symptoms or more, please visit Body Works. Our chiropractor is available to evaluate your condition and determine the severity of your injury. It is important to seek treatment immediately, as waiting may cause a lasting condition. Chiropractic care provides drug-free treatment options for concussions and is able to restore your body to health.

Chicago Chiropractic Adjustments at Body Works Health & Wellness

Our chiropractor evaluates your concussion and your spine to identify the best healing approach for you. Dr. Zaffarkhan looks for misalignments in the vertebrae of your neck and back. If the vertebrae have moved out of alignment, he gently positions them for a healthier posture. This allows circulation and nerve messages to move freely from your spine to your brain. As a result, healing is faster and your body is able to repair itself. Our chiropractor also identifies any discs that are bulging from between the vertebrae. He repositions the spine to take pressure off the discs which also improves circulation. If the soft tissues in your neck such as the muscles, tendons and ligaments were stressed when your head made contact with the window, our chiropractor is able to reduce tension in these areas and prepare your body for healing. Our health team shows you exercises to care for your neck and back and support your recovery.

Immediate care for a concussion is essential to your full recovery. Instead of waiting for it to pass, visit Body Works Health & Wellness for a full evaluation of your condition. When you begin chiropractic treatments for concussions, your body recovers in a healthy alignment and reduces the risks of lasting effects.
