We Treat Short-Term Memory Loss After Auto Accidents
Many people associate forgetfulness and short-term memory loss with aging, but it is not a trait that is exclusive to the elderly. You may also experience forgetfulness following a traumatic automobile accident. Head injuries are common reasons for forgetfulness. If the impact of another car striking yours caused you to hit your head on the steering wheel, dashboard, or windshield, you must be wary of forgetfulness symptoms. They may be as minor as not remembering why you entered a specific room or as significant as omitting something from a professional report. Either way, it is an issue you will have to address. Boston Chiropractic Spine & Injury Center can treat your symptoms with expert care at our state-of-the-art facility in Boston, MA. Call our friendly staff to explain your circumstances and learn more about how we can help you.
Forgetfulness Following Auto Accidents is Common
Brain injuries are common following automobile accidents. Significant force thrusts your head and neck in all different directions, causing your brain to shake and move in ways it should not. Brain injuries may lead to several varieties of cognitive impairments or disabilities, including forgetfulness. Furthermore, the trauma from a car crash may cause swelling, which puts pressure on your brain and central nervous system (CNS). This pressure restricts blood flow and the flow of information from one area of your brain to another. As the swelling subsides, some memories may return, but that is not always the case. The three most common types of amnesia that car crash victims suffer are:
This state of confusion typically occurs immediately after an accident.
The most common type of memory loss following an accident, anterograde amnesia renders individuals unable to remember the events following a crash.
This affects memories that were formed before an automobile accident took place.
Chiropractic Care Can Minimize Your Forgetfulness
Though some memories will never return, chiropractic care can help minimize long-term forgetfulness so that you can lead your life similarly to how you did before your accident. Spinal adjustments and chiropractic manipulations have been proven to improve brain function. In addition to alleviating pain and decreasing musculoskeletal issues, our treatments can increase the power of your mind and improve your memory. We recognize that all auto accidents are unique, and your symptoms may vary greatly from even those who shared a car with you. But we will carefully evaluate your condition with an eye toward helping you return to your pre-accident self with expert chiropractic care.
