Being involved in an automobile accident is an extremely terrifying and overwhelming experience. One minute you everything is fine, and the next minute you are involved in a serious collision and seeking auto accident treatment for your lower back pain and/or whiplash.

Visiting a Chiropractor in Kenosha for prompt diagnosis and treatment of your injuries will help to reduce your recovery time and increase the benefits of your treatments.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
An auto accident can cause injuries to any part of your body. Some people may notice their pain or other symptoms immediately following the accident, while others may not notice the symptoms until days or even weeks after the accident occurred. Because the injuries may have a long-term effect on your health, comfort, and quality of life, it is essential that you seek auto accident treatment as soon as possible following your accident. Visiting Jeranek Family Chiropractic for a consultation about chiropractic treatment as soon as you notice symptoms is the best way to minimize the possible consequences of your injuries. Some of the most common injuries associated with auto accidents include:
- Whiplash - which is the most common type of injury associated with automobile accidents. Whiplash can occur even in a low-speed collision, especially if you were rear-ended. The symptoms may include pain and stiffness in your neck, headaches, pain, stiffness and/or numbness in your shoulders, arms or upper and lower back.
- Back injuries - such as fractured vertebrae, a herniated disc and lower back pain from sprains and strains are also a common consequence of auto accidents. Damage to your spine can lead to chronic back pain and even disability. Working with a Chiropractor in Kenosha is the best way to reduce the risk of lasting damage and to have effective relief of your back pain.
The first step towards being on the road to receiving auto accident treatment in order to recover from your injuries is to make an appointment with Jeranek Family Chiropractic. During your initial visit, your chiropractor may want to take x-rays to determine the extent of the injuries in your neck and/or spine. Keep in mind that you may not notice the symptoms of these types of injuries, so it is important to consider having an x-ray. If you are experiencing indicators of whiplash, such as headaches, blurred vision and neck and shoulder pain, it is important to not assume these symptoms are mild will go away on their own. Whiplash can lead to worse injuries, such as muscle injuries, ligament problems, disc damage and minor back injuries.
