Suffering From Auto Accident Injury Symptoms?

Chiropractic care can relieve most symptoms following an auto accident. See the symptoms below for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What if my symptoms did not begin immediately?

Often times, pain and/or symptoms of injury are delayed following a car crash. The soft tissues (muscles, tendons, discs, ligaments, etc.) are commonly stretched and/or sustain microtears in an automobile accident. This leads to an inflammatory reaction that takes time to build up within the soft tissue. Often patients mask their initial symptoms with pain medications and are unaware of the level of their pain and stiffness until these medications wear off.

In most cases, your auto accident insurance will pay 100% for the cost of your chiropractic care. Our Office can assist you in obtaining this information. Using your medical coverage should not raise your premiums.

Whiplash injuries occur when there is a sudden forced movement of the head or neck in any direction which can cause a rebound in the opposite direction. Surrounding and supporting tissues of the neck and head will be affected. Consequently, the surrounding muscles begin to tighten, contract and fatigue quicker resulting in pain and stiffness. Car accidents are the most common cause of whiplash.

It is vital to get a proper evaluation to determine how to get you feeling better without the use of medication, which is designed to mask the pain, not treat the cause of the pain. At Pain and Rehab Center of Maryland, our goal is to help you recover from automobile injuries and focus on the correction of your ailments.

During the impact of an accident your neck is forcibly "whipped" back and forth and side to side past its normal range of motion. As a result whiplash injuries can affect the muscles and tissues in your back and neck. Stiffness, back pain, and/or neck pain can ensue immediately or take days, weeks, or even months to appear. It is crucial to treat whiplash immediately even if you are not yet experiencing neck or back pain.

Headaches and migraines are common symptoms that can occur as a result of whiplash injuries or any type of motor vehicle injury. Headaches may appear when specific vertebrae in your neck are restricted and out of position due to the impact of an accident. Sprained neck muscles can cause pain to radiate to your head. Any injuries or traumas to your head can cause headaches and migraines. If you are experiencing headaches after your car accident, then you should get treated as soon as possible so that your headache pain does not become permanent. At Pain and Rehab Center of Maryland we treat whiplash injuries so that you can become functional and return to normal.

After an incident about 2 months ago I was not able to work due to low back pain and right leg numbness. My orthopedic Dr put me on some pills to make me even more drowsy and sleepy all day instead of helping me with the pain to be able to go back to work and I was also referred to a physical therapist in Washington DC for pain management. After 1 month and a half going there 4 times a week there was only very minimal relieve so I decided to talk to my attorney to be seen by another provider in the area. Then I found Dr Gela, she is very knowledgeable and professional and her staff are very friendly. They provided me with the transportation for every visits since I have no ride at this moment. Dr Gela was able to help me walk pain free in 5 visits and I returned to work after being out of work for almost 2 months. I highly recommend pain and rehab center if you are suffering from injuries.
