Hand and Foot Pain After a Car Accident? How Can a Chiropractor Help? | County Line Chiropractic

Often after a car accident, there are injuries and pain in unexpected areas like your hands and feet. Understanding the injury and the source of your pain is key to treating it successfully.

Non-invasive chiropractic treatment is often the needed solution to eliminate your pain and return strength and mobility to your hands and feet. Here are some common car accident injuries and how these injuries, often in other parts of your body, can cause hand and foot pain.

You need your hands and feet for all your daily tasks, that’s why it’s important they are functioning at an optimal level. With such flexible movement and dexterity, your hands and feet are made up of many bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and nerves. Due to excessive use, our hands and feet are prone to injury and pain.

Our doctors at County Line Chiropractic can find the source of pain and perform effective chiropractic treatments to help reduce all types of hand and foot pain.

Chiropractors have the training and experienced to treat numerous conditions, including injuries resulting from car accidents. Often car accidents cause back injuries, neck injuries and pinched nerves, which can lead to pain even in your extremities. At County Line Chiropractic, we help heal car accident injuries with natural non-invasive methods.

Back injuries, especially lower back injuries, are common in car accidents. Herniated discs, fractured or broken vertebrae, or sprains are common back injuries that lead to pain, pressure, inflammation, and mobility issues. Back injuries are very common following a car accident and can result in pain, numbness, and weakness, preventing you from working or performing other daily activities. Back injuries, not only cause pain in the back, neck, or head, but can also cause issues with walking, balance, lack of coordination, weakness, difficulty breathing, paralysis, as well as numbness and tingling in the hands, fingers, toes, and feet. Should you notice pain or other symptoms at any time after a car accident, call on County Line  for diagnostic testing and evaluation.

Neck injuries, including whiplash, are also common injuries following traffic accidents, particularly in head-on and rear-end collisions. Neck injuries from damaged soft tissues often present days or weeks following the accident limiting the range of motion and causing pain. In addition to neck pain, headaches, blurred vision, dizziness, along with shoulder, arm, and hand pain, and even pain in the lower back.  It is important that neck injuries are treated effectively to avoid scarring, pain, and immobility in the future. County Line works to relieve pain, heal injuries, and restore mobility through spinal adjustments and other non-invasive treatments.

Pinched nerves often happen after a car accident. These injuries can occur anywhere in the body but are most common in the spine. A pinched nerve occurs when pressure on the nerve causes pain, tingling, and numbness. Pinched nerves cause tingling (pins and needles sensations) along with numbness, weakness, and burning pain almost anywhere in the body including the hands and feet. They can occur along with spinal or neck injuries and can be treated by your chiropractor though manual manipulation, restoring proper positioning and alleviating pain.

Following a car accident, a visit to your chiropractor will include a comprehensive examination to determine the injury and its location and provide a customized care plan to restore your health and wellness. After a car accident, call on the team at County Line Chiropractic Medical and Rehab to find the best solution for you and your injury, and get the pain relief you deserve.
