If you have been involved in a car accident, it is absolutely necessary to be seen by a Chiropractor as soon as possible to reduce the risks of damage to your spine and help to decrease your pain.
In a low-velocity impact, the soft tissue is seldom torn completely. It is usually stretched beyond its elastic limit, resulting in an incomplete injury. In higher velocity impacts, the same occurs, sometimes to a greater scale. However, incomplete injuries are more prevalent than complete injuries and cause more damage because they cause the ligaments to stretch beyond their normal range without a complete tear.
Studies show that auto accidents can cause injury to muscles, joints, ligaments, nerves, discs, spinal facets, spinal cord, vertebrae and even the brain.
Even a minor fender bender can cause serious injuries to the body because of the massive amount of force that is exerted on your body. Whether it has been days, weeks or even months since your accident and you are experiencing dull/achy pain, sharp/shooting pain, numbness and tingling in your hands or feet, back pain and neck pain or headaches come see us because Chiropractic is one of the safest and most effective treatments that can help you recover and your body to heal naturally.
While pain medications may be necessary initially, they only mask the underlying cause of your aches and pains as a result of your car accident. Whiplash injuries and other physical injuries cannot be CORRECTED or TREATED with harmful chemicals with unforeseen side effects.
Chiropractic adjustments help to promote natural healing by working with your body from the inside. Proper alignment of your spine helps the muscles and nerves to relax and do their job more efficiently, thus helping to reduce and eliminate your pain and stiffness after an accident. Chiropractic adjustments promote blood flow and circulation to your muscles, nerves and surrounding tissues thus, shortening your recovery time, preventing scar tissue formation and helping to decrease the chances of further damage to your spine.
