How to Know You Suffered Nerve Damage After a Car Accident
Aside from sudden tingling, numbness, and pins-and-needles sensations, other symptoms that indicate that you may have suffered nerve damage (also known as a pinched nerve) after a car accident include:
- Experiencing muscle pain and weakness
- Shooting pain that moves outward
- Not being able to feel or move your limbs, fingers, and/or toes
- Sudden twitching or uncontrolled muscle movement
- Increased skin sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
Car crash victims may also suffer secondary symptoms, such as lack of sleep and stress, because of the constant discomfort and pain.
Chiropractic Care Treatment Options for Numbness and Tingling
After a car accident, chiropractic care can help reduce numbness and tingling that is the result of nerves being stretched or pinched by misaligned or locked vertebrae, as well as inflamed and swollen tissue. As a car crash patient’s range of motion improves in their spine and neck, and swelling reduces, their symptoms will begin to lessen.
The rate of improvement depends on the severity of injuries sustained after an auto crash; however, relief is often felt within two weeks.
Here are just a few examples of tingling and numbness treatment options that Dr. Banning may include in your personal care plan:
- Gentle stretching
- At-home exercises
- Deep tissue laser therapy
- Therapeutic massage
- Spinal decompression
- Low-impact chiropractic techniques
