After an auto accident, your body may feel “off” for a while. You may even experience lingering feelings of dizziness or light-headedness. If you do, and you suffered from whiplash or a back injury, you may be struggling with auto accident-related vertigo.
At White House Chiropractic, our team has years of experience helping people reduce the spins and get relief from dizziness or feeling light-headed after enduring a car wreck injury.
What Are Symptoms of Auto Injury-Related Dizziness or Vertigo?
The Mayo Clinic defines dizziness as a range of sensations, such as feeling faint, woozy, weak, unbalanced, light-headed, or unsteady. In turn, vertigo is the sensation of feeling like you or your surroundings are spinning or moving while you are standing still.
Patients who visit our White House chiropractic office after a car crash will often come to us looking for help treating all or some of these symptoms.
How Chiropractic Care Helps Alleviate Dizziness After an Auto Accident
Your spinal column and neck house and protect your central nervous and circulatory systems. When a blunt force trauma from a car crash damages and shifts those structures it can create a chain reaction of health symptoms, such as dizziness, vertigo, headaches, or even TMJ.
Through chiropractic care you can realign and decompress the vertebrae in your spine and neck. Doing so can help relieve stressed and strained muscles and tendons, unblocked the nerve signal flow, and allow the blood to flood more freely through your vertebral arteries.
This not only helps reduce the damage done to your spine or neck, it can also alleviate any related damage to your inner ear and eyes, thus further lessening sensations of dizziness or vertigo.
Think of it like this: a tornado blazes past your home shaking it on its very foundation. This catastrophic force causes structural damage that also impacts the electrical wiring and plumbing throughout your home. Through proper reconstruction work, your home is leveled out and the flow of energy and water is once again working, as it should.
Personalized Care Plans for Chiropractic Patients
At White House Chiropractic, our goal is to help you achieve your best health.
That is why Dr. Banning will first take x-rays of a patient’s neck and back, discuss symptoms, and carefully examine each patient prior to providing any type of chiropractic care. That way he can then develop a personalized chiropractic care plan to address each patient’s individual symptoms.
Next, a series of chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression treatments, and/or therapeutic massage sessions may be required to reduce the frequency of vertigo episodes and dizziness.
Just know that throughout the healing process, Dr. Banning will consult with you and monitor your progress regularly to ensure that your treatment plan addresses your current health care needs.
