Airbags are designed to protect you in a crash, but sometimes they can cause injuries like burns, abrasions, and even broken bones. Seatbelts can also cause injuries, especially to the shoulder and abdomen. If you've been injured by an air bag or seatbelt, we ay Delmarva Chiropractic P.C. can help.
At Delmarva Chiropractic, we can treat many types of air bag and seatbelt injuries. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs. Treatment may include chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitative exercises, and more. Our Salisbury, MD, office offers a variety of options to address auto accident injuries.
These are some of the most common injuries caused by air bags and seatbelts.
Airbags deploy at high speeds, and the resulting friction can cause burns. These burns can be minor or severe, depending on the intensity of the crash. Your auto accident injury may also involve pain relief by a chiropractor.
Seatbelts can cause abrasions, or "road rash," when they tighten during a crash. Road rash can be painful and may require medical attention. A chiropractor may provide treatment to relieve pain left after the physical abrasions are gone.
Airbags and seatbelts can both cause broken bones. The force of the airbag deploying, or the seatbelt tightening can break ribs, collarbones, and other bones. If you have suffered a broken bone, we at Delmarva Chiropractic can help you prevent further injuries after your bones have healed.
Whiplash is a common injury that occurs when the head and neck are suddenly jerked forward or backward. It can be caused by an airbag deploying or a seatbelt tightening. Symptoms of whiplash include neck pain, headache, and dizziness. In some cases, the force could lead to concussion symptoms. Our chiropractic care an help alleviate pain from whiplash and can aid in the healing process.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Airbags and seatbelts can both cause soft tissue injuries. These injuries include bruising, swelling, and muscle strains. Soft tissue injuries can be painful and may benefit from a chiropractor.
