Having an auto injury is common after a car accident. Airbags and seatbelts have been put into cars as a way of limiting injures. While these safety features are essential for preventing car accident fatalities, seatbelts and airbags can sometimes cause injuries themselves. These types of injuries often respond well to chiropractic care. If you have recently been involved in a car accident in Florence, San Tan Valley, or Queen Creek, AZ the auto injury treatment professionals at Ironwood Chiropractic are ready to assist you.
Airbags and Car Accident Injuries
If your airbags go off in the car, then you have likely been in a major accident that can cause any number of injuries. The airbag is designed to prevent catastrophic injury in these major car accidents. The issue is that it comes out with such force that it can cause injuries itself. When an airbag deploys, it's not uncommon that it breaks bones in your face and could give you a concussion. Another auto injury often caused by airbag deployment is whiplash, which can cause pain and immobility in your neck and upper back.
This pain, while often severe, is treatable in most cases. Chiropractic adjustments will reduce your pain, restore your range of motion, and improve your body’s natural ability to repair itself. From there, our chiropractor will give you exercises and stretches to do at home to improve your overall health.
Your Seatbelt and an Auto Injury
Just like airbags, seatbelts are in a car to prevent a major injury in an accident but can cause injuries as well. You should always be wearing your seatbelt. This means that they can cause injury every time an accident occurs. Like airbags, one of the most common injuries that you can suffer from a seatbelt is whiplash. Normally, a seatbelt will not force your head back with as much force as an airbag would. However, it can still occur with enough force to cause significant musculoskeletal misalignment.
