Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Car Accident

auto injury

A car accident can have a devastating effect on one’s life and the after-effects can be both financially and physically detrimental. Motor vehicle accidents often result in a variety of complex injuries and symptoms, so it is important to consider seeking a healthcare professional with experience in treating patients following car accidents, such as Dr. Jiles LeBlanc, DC.

Some of the more commonly sustained injuries via a car accident are whiplash, headaches, back pain and injuries to the neck, shoulders, knees and other extremities. Many times, the pain and stiffness is not severe enough to miss work or see a doctor, and just limits your daily activities, so you delay in having yourself evaluated. But it is very important to realize that car accidents tend to produce injury despite how low the speed or minimal the impact. Injuries have been documented in accidents with speeds as low as 2.5 mph. The average fender bender in a parking lot is 10 –12 mph which proves that you could be hurt even if your car wasn’t.

When we are injured in an auto accident, muscles are torn and ligaments are sprained. Torn muscles and sprained ligaments heal with scar tissue, which limits our mobility, causes pain in cold weather and can impede our ability to play the sports or participate in the leisure time that we enjoy. So if you’ve recently been involved in an auto accident, chances are you’ve felt a little soreness, or maybe you’ve been in great pain. If you went to your family doctor, or even the emergency room, you may have been told it’s probably just a sprain or strain and given pain medication. Pills do not correct the damage to soft tissues and other systems that can lead to future pain, long-term problems or disability.

If you suffer from any of these symptoms, please contact our office immediately for an appointment:

  • Whiplash
  • Concussion
  • Neck pain and/or stiffness
  • Headache
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Lower back pain and/or stiffness
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Pain between the shoulder blades
  • Shoulder pain
  • Nausea

  • Pain in the jaw or face
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Vertigo
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Blurred vision

  • Feeling disoriented

Often, individuals experience little or no symptoms initially following a car accident but subsequently suffer from a variety of symptoms including pain and decreased function and mobility. Often the trauma associated with these types of injuries takes days and sometimes weeks to develop so it is important to receive immediate and appropriate treatment following an auto accident. The longer you delay treatment the harder it may be to get back to normal.

Dr. Jiles LeBlanc is trained to identify injuries that may not show any immediate symptoms. Even if your car didn’t get damaged and you don’t feel any pain, that throbbing pain you feel today can come back with a vengeance a month, year, or even 10 years down the road. If you have just been in an auto accident, please do not hesitate to research your options for treatment and contact LeBlanc Spine & Nerve to make an appointment with today.
