No matter which way you look at it, car accidents are extremely stressful. From the trauma your body experiences to the auto repairs to the stress of dealing with auto insurance. If you experience a car accident, make your health a priority even if your injuries don’t seem serious.
We have treated a great number of patients that have suffered car accident injuries such as whiplash. If you don’t seek out the proper care, you can suffer from lasting and serious side effects which can lead to chronic pain that lasts for months or even years.
One of the most common injuries we treat after an auto accident is whiplash. Whiplash is when an abrupt movement causes your head to jolt forward, backward, or sideways. The spine is destabilized, causing serious pain and other symptoms including:
Lower back pain
Stiffness in the neck
Reduced range of motion in the neck
After an auto accident, make your overall health and wellness your number one priority and seek out the care of a chiropractor. If left untreated, the effects of whiplash and other injuries can be long lasting. After an accident, your injuries aren’t always obvious. Sometimes they take weeks or even months to be recognized, which is why it is essential to visit a chiropractor to support the health of your spine after it has gone through trauma.
Any time a body part is jarred unexpectedly or thrown further than its normal limits ligaments can become stretched or tear. The ligaments that support the head and neck are vulnerable during a car accident. As chiropractors, we specialize in nerves, bones, muscles, and connective tissues which makes us experts at treating injuries from car accidents. By keeping the major parts of the body as healthy as possible and the spine in proper alignment, your body will be better able to function optimally, meaning it will operate as it should.
When you seek out chiropractic care after an auto accident, you give yourself the best opportunity to heal quickly. Even a minor accident with little damage to both the passengers and vehicle can cause trauma to the body, and we can help restore your health. We will work with you to create a custom treatment plan unique to your needs to help you recover. Contact us for a consultation today!
