Chiropractic Care for a Shoulder Injury from an Auto Accident
At Kentucky Injury & Rehab, we can help patients in Shively, KY, and Dixie, KY, who suffer from shoulder injuries. Many of our patients with shoulder problems were injured in auto accidents. You may not even be aware you have an injury during the accident because your body prevents the pain from affecting you immediately.
Shoulder injuries from car accidents are often overlooked because whiplash can be more painful. However, we offer several treatments for shoulder injuries at our clinic. Keep reading for more info on our treatments for shoulder injuries.
Shoulder Injury from a Car Accident
The most common injury is whiplash. Whiplash can cause even a slight head movement to be excruciating. Shoulder injuries may present stiffness or pain after the accident. Also, your shoulder may only feel stiff if you make specific arm movements.
Many patients only visit our chiropractor for treatment after a car accident. However, upon noticing shoulder stiffness, patients must visit our clinic for treatment immediately. If the injury is ignored, the pain will likely get worse, and the damage to your injury could increase.
How We Can Treat Your Shoulder Injuries
Dr. Langschied treats shoulder injuries with a thorough treatment regimen that often combines several care methods. The treatment methods Dr. Langschied commonly uses for shoulder injuries include:
- Muscle stimulation
- Traction therapy
- Exercise therapy
- Acoustic wave therapy
Dr. Langschied will conduct an exam upon your first visit. This exam may include imaging from our digital X-ray machine. He will use what he learned from the exam to formulate his treatment plan. Speak with our chiropractor if you have any issues with the process. You will be in the loop the whole time. This information will minimize nervousness around your chiropractic care.
