Chiropractic Care Following a Motorcycle Accident

At Veeva Chiropractic Clinic, we’ve successfully treated the pain of many patients who have been in automobile accidents, helping them recover. But when a patient has been in a motorcycle accident, the challenges to recovery can be compounded. The freedom so many bikers enjoy about motorcycling leaves them fully exposed. There is no barrier between them and other vehicles, the road surface or any obstructions they might meet, especially if they leave the bike. This makes motorcyclists vulnerable to even more serious injury.

Typical Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents

At Veeva, we’re trained to address the pain symptoms that may arise should you suffer a motorcycle accident or collision.

  • WhiplashJust as in an auto accident, the force of impact can cause the head to be moved back and forth suddenly. Muscles in your neck are stretched and even torn, and vertebrae knocked out of alignment, leading to lasting pain and discomfort.
  • Hip injury. It’s not uncommon tohit the pavement and land on your hip if you’re knocked off your bike. In the process, your hip can become misaligned, leading to back and leg pain.
  • Biker’s arm. When a biker is falling, it’s a natural instinct to try to brace for impact by extending a handout in front. This can cause injuries to your hand, arm and shoulder, with implications for the back, as well. The muscles, bones and nerves in your arm were not meant to absorb this level of trauma

The Right Kind of Care 

Of course, the first thing you should do after an accident is to be checked out by a medical professional. Any wounds or broken bones must be addressed first. But keep in mind, as your body tries to adapt to your injuries, other pain symptoms may surface, even weeks later. That’s when your doctor may refer you to Veeva Chiropractic for care, or you may come to us for help on your own.

At Veeva, our skilled chiropractors will make a comprehensive assessment of your case and devise a treatment plan to address your pain symptoms. Through gentle adjustments of your spine, and other therapies like therapeutic massage, we’ll encourage your body to heal and help you regain motion in your neck, hips or any other place in the musculoskeletal system where you’re having problems.

Our treatment techniques are safe and effective, and work without dependence on prescription drugs.
