Treating Injuries After an Auto Accident

Treating Injuries After an Auto Accident - El Paso Chiropractor

For individuals who’ve been involved in an automobile accident, the symptoms of neck and back pain resulting from an injury can be disabling. The greatest issue with neck and back pain caused during an auto collision involves the continuous cycle of the body when it reacts to injury. Due to the traumatic nature of the accident, the damage or injury to the spine most often causes a chemical response to trigger, leading to symptoms of pain, inflammation, and swelling, well-known signs that unfortunately don’t resolve quickly.

Many chiropractors commonly diagnose and treat neck and back complications affecting individuals after being involved in an auto accident. After suffering an injury, it’s important to seek immediate medical attention to begin treatment for your injuries. When the body experiences trauma from an injury, its normal for the body to produce inflammatory chemicals that cause the region surrounding the tissue damage to become inflamed and swollen but if the individual doesn’t receive medical treatment, the chemical process will continue, causing worse symptoms to develop.

Through chiropractic treatment, a chiropractor may use spinal adjustments, manual manipulations, and occasional exercises to increase blood flow throughout the site of the injury, in order to ultimately help reduce the inflammation and pain as well as loosen stiff muscles and restore the original function of the body.

In addition to chiropractic care, applying ice therapy to the area of the injury and staying active can help improve the symptoms of the injury. Using ice can help temporarily reduce the inflammation on the muscle tissues and it also offers relief from the pain. Walking, for example, is a simple physical activity that can help stimulate the body to produce natural pain killers as well as help maintain the body’s flexibility. Its important to avoid staying inactive while recovering from an automobile injury because doing so will only cause the body to become stiffer and create more pain.

A chiropractor can easily diagnose the source of your neck and back pain to decide which spinal adjustments, exercises, and stretches will be the best option for your type of injury and level of symptoms in order to speed up the healing process and promote the best recovery.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …

5 Common Causes for Shoulder Pain

The shoulders are the most mobile joints in the human body. Because the ball of the humerus is designed to be larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, the shoulders need to be supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments to secure them in a stable or natural position. Since the shoulder can be unstable, it is often a site for many common complications. Below are 5 common causes of shoulder pain and their associated symptoms.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tears within the shoulder are a very common type of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff consists of a set of four muscles: the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the subscapularis, and the teres minor. All of these muscles are attached to the bones of the shoulders by tendons, which purspose is to support, stabilize, and grant the arm movement to move up, down and rotate. The rotator cuff ensures that the arm remains in the shoulder socket. Damage or injury from an accident or gradual wear and tear can result in inflammation to t…
