Our Brea Chiropractor Discusses Common Leg & Knee Injuries Sustained in an Auto Accident
Injuries to the spine--including whiplash and low back pain--are common following an auto accident. The leg is also particularly at risk for sustaining an auto accident injury. Whether a driver or passenger, you are subjected to a lot of force during an auto accident. Depending on your body position and the direction of force (e.g., side impact vs. rear-end impact) at the time of the accident, your leg may undergo any number of strains or blows.
Our chiropractor in North Orange County evaluates and treats several of these common leg and knee injuries caused by auto accidents:
- Muscle strain
- Bone bruise
- Joint dislocation
- Ligament sprain or tear (especially of the knee or ankle)
Many of these injuries, if not treated early, may lead to chronic issues including joint immobility caused by arthritis and excessive scar tissue formation.
How Our Auto Accident Injury Chiropractor Can Help Manage Your Leg or Knee Injury
If you live in Brea, Anaheim, Fullerton, and other nearby towns in North Orange County, CA, be sure to call our wellness center in Brea if you or a loved one experiences an auto accident. Our auto accident injury chiropractor recommends that you schedule an appointment as soon as you are medically cleared to do so--even if you aren't actively noticing any symptoms of an injury! Why? A surge in hormones (like cortisol and adrenaline) that naturally occurs during a time of trauma can mask signs and symptoms of an injury. Since it may take several days or weeks for the hormones to return to normal levels, you may not know you even have a leg or knee injury until after it's already progressed.
Our auto accident injury chiropractor carefully assesses the "whole person" who comes to see her for an initial consultation. She'll look for any underlying signs of injury, as well as identify hidden causes--including postural abnormalities, soft tissue tightness, spinal nerve impingement, and muscle imbalances--that may be contributing to your injury. Then, using a variety of non-invasive and drug-free approaches--including chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy--our Brea chiropractor can then help guide your body back to health, relieving you of your pain and other leg and knee symptoms.
