Personal Injury & Car Accidents Q & A

What are some common personal injuries?

Some of the most common personal injuries come from car collisions, including:

  • Whiplash from car accidents
  • Concussion
  • Broken bones
  • Back injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Contusions
  • Herniated discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Muscle spasms
  • Sprain/strain injuries
  • Post-traumatic headaches

You can also experience a personal injury from slip-and-fall accidents on your property or someone else’s, or a workplace injury. Some personal injuries at work are the result of overuse from a repetitive task or suffering an injury from unsafe working conditions.

How soon should I see a chiropractor after a personal injury?

If you were involved in a collision, it’s a good idea to make an appointment with Dr. Skinner as soon as possible. He can detect potential sources of pain even if you don’t experience immediate symptoms. In some cases, symptoms don’t appear until weeks or even months after the incident.

After you experience a personal injury, Dr. Skinner conducts a thorough examination of your musculoskeletal and nervous systems to determine areas that might have been damaged. He takes a comprehensive, whole-person approach to treating any obvious and more subtle injuries, and provides an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan so you can heal.

It’s important to be proactive about treatment before you develop more complicated conditions from injuries left untreated.

What types of personal injuries do you treat?

With his extensive background in trauma care and as a doctor of chiropractic, Dr. Skinner treats musculoskeletal and nervous-system injuries such as:

  • Back, neck, and spine pain or injury
  • Headaches and whiplash
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries
  • Joint pain
  • Pain in your hands, feet, legs, and arms
  • Pinched nerves
  • Herniated discs

Dr. Skinner uses a combination of physical therapies, progressive exercises, and chiropractic adjustments to help repair damaged tissue, joints, and bones. His proven, natural approach to personal injuries relieves pain and discomfort and helps restore mobility.

Each therapeutic method works together to help you fully recover and return to your normal lifestyle as seamlessly as possible.

When you come to Action Chiropractic after a personal injury, you get a customized, drug-free, nonsurgical treatment plan based on your particular needs – not a one-size-fits-all approach.  However, Dr. Skinner also has an extensive referral network of medical doctors including pain management specialists, neurologists, orthopedic specialists, and neuropsychologists who’ll work closely with Dr. Skinner on your care to be certain you’re getting the best and most appropriate treatment available for your specific injuries.

While Action Chiropractic’s approach is all natural, Dr. Skinner understands that in some cases, especially when there’s trauma involved, having medical specialists to aid in your recovery can be crucial.
