Car Accident Injury Treatment Minneapolis MN

Everyone knows that getting into an accident is one of the most frustrating things in the world. Not only is your vehicle now damaged to some degree, your body is too. Luckily for you, you live in a state that has a No-Fault rule that applies when people are injured in a motor vehicle accident. Even a minor injury as a result of a car accident is covered. Some people won’t bother to get checked out at all if they feel no immediate or extreme pain but I assure you that some type of damage was most likely done to your body. Here at Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness in Minneapolis, MN, you will be examined to the full extent to ensure there aren’t any underlying injuries you were un-aware of.

Types of Injuries Caused by an Accident

  • Whiplash
  • Concussions
  • Neck Pain and/or Stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Muscle Stiffness
  • Lower Back Pain and/or Stiffness
  • Numbness and Tingling
  • Shoulder Pain and Pain between the shoulders
  • Pain in the Arms and Legs
  • Foot and Hand Pain
  • Pain in the Jaw or Face
  • Sleeping Difficulties
  • Vertigo
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in the Ears
  • Blurred Vision
  • Disorientation

These injuries can be very damaging to one’s body. You may not feel pain at all but what you don’t know is that most injuries happen in your soft tissues. Soft tissues are the tissues that hold your spine, muscles, and main joints strong and mobile. When these tissues become damaged, your movement may become limited or pain may occur.

It can take weeks, months or even years before soft tissue injuries cause you pain. Soft tissue injuries can become permanent over time if left untreated. Even if the accident you were in was a 5 mph hit, (watch this live person demonstration) you can still injure your soft tissues. This type of injury is completely different than injuries looked for and treated in the ER. Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness& and Wellness has over 20 years of experience treating patients for soft tissue injuries.

Other Techniques to Treat the Pain

  • Massage Therapy
    Having a few sessions with a massage therapist can help to relax and loosen your muscles. This will help with stress, sprains, and strains and improve circulation in addition to benefitting your overall emotional well being.
  • Stretches & Exercises
    At Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness, our patients do a series of stretches before their adjustment to prepare their body for the best alignment possible. A post adjustment neuro-muscular reeducation exercise is also done and things you can do at home are discussed in order for you to get the most benefit in the least amount of time and have the longest lasting results.
  • Digital X-Rays
    X-Rays of your spine are used to diagnose the areas which need treatment, monitor changes and assess the need for further diagnostic testing.
  • Computerized Foot Function Analysis
    Your feet are the foundation for your entire body. Surprisingly feet are often injured in auto accidents when a person braces for impact or slams on the brakes. In addition to adjustments, we can do an electronic foot function scan to properly fit custom orthotics as needed.
  • Cold Laser Infrared Technology
    This technology speeds the body’s natural repair response by using light to simulate your body’s natural repair processes.
  • Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) EMS is used for rehabilitation purposes, for instance the prevention of disuse muscle atrophy which can occur after injuries such as damage to bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons.
