Body Works Health & Wellness Urges Early Treatment for Auto Accident Injuries

CHICAGO, May 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Patients need to become more aware of the common injuries that result from car accidents and the need to begin treatment early, reports Body Works Health & Wellness. Auto accident victims can have a number of injuries including whiplash, concussion, sprains, strains, neck and back pain, headaches and more. This Chicago chiropractor offers spinal manipulations, corrective exercises and traction as part of offered chiropractic care to alleviate discomfort and assist the body’s healing process. Car accident injuries can prevent people from performing daily activities and chiropractic can make it possible for them to resume favorite hobbies and activities with reduced need for medication.

Many auto accident patients are surprised to see additional aspects of their injury reveal itself in time. It is necessary to start chiropractic treatment early to identify car accident injuries and begin appropriate treatment for optimal recovery. Whiplash is often due to a car accident. Forceful hyperflexion of the neck causes damage in tendons, ligaments and related muscles that support the head. Whiplash injuries cannot be validated with an x-ray, making it hard to diagnose and treat. Other related injuries are manifested symptoms of whiplash. Pain in the shoulders, neck and lower back, frequent headaches, fatigue, cognitive changes and more can develop due to whiplash. Many symptoms have a delayed onset and can take weeks to months to make their presence known. Chiropractic addresses such trauma.

“Chiropractic care has been effective in treating many injuries resulting from car accidents,” said Dr. Yousef Zaffarkhan. “Whiplash is the most frequently seen car accident injury, as the impact during an accident quickly moves the head forward and back, typically past their body’s normal range of motion, and leads to muscle strain and spinal misalignment. Concussions, spinal injuries, inflammation, reduced range of motion, headaches, shoulder, neck and back pain, and stiffness can all be due to an auto accident. Many injuries reveal themselves in time as when earlier symptom recedes and others arise. Memory problems, headaches and significant pain can make difficult performing routine activities difficult. We partner with patients to guide bodies back into a balanced state and promote the body’s natural healing from car accident trauma.”

Dr. Yousef Zaffarkhan offers chiropractic treatment to Chicago’s West Loop residents and the surrounding neighborhoods. Holistic treatment programs take into account all aspects of patient needs with a range of chiropractic and complementary treatment options, such as massage therapy, chiropractic care, spinal manipulations, acupuncture, corrective exercises and traction to correct auto accident injuries.
