Chiropractic Care & Nerve Damage

A damaged nerve can make it tough for an accident victim to follow through with their everyday routine.

The amount of pain and physical impairment that a pinched or damaged nerve can cause can be debilitating and have a significant influence on a patient’s ability to maintain the type of quality of life they are used to.

An auto accident can lead to a variety of nerve conditions, but the most common forms of pinched nerves are those caused by Whiplash Injuries.

Whiplash develops when the head and neck are randomly jerked in one particular direction, and then suddenly pulled in the opposite direction because of the change in force.

The rapid movement of a Whiplash Injury can lead to the nerves in the back and neck to become overstrained, stretched beyond their limits, or torn.

Diagnosing Nerve Damage

If you are involved in a car accident, it’s important to understand the kind of the symptoms that can help identify whether or not an accident victim has experienced a pinched nerve.

These symptoms can include:

  • Twitching
  • Involuntary muscle movement
  • Heightened sensitivity to temperature, both hot and cold
  • Significant muscle pain
  • Tingling
  • Numbness in the toes, fingers, or the damaged area

If you believe you have suffered nerve damage, contact one of the Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta who can diagnose your condition and provide immediate treatment.
