Chiropractic is an effective treatment choice for car accident-related back pain, headaches, and neck pain. It may surprise you to learn that we not only treat patients with recent auto accident injuries, but also those who had incidents that were dismissed as minor and were not previously treated.
It’s always seemed odd to me that people don’t normally look after themselves as well as they do their cars. After an auto crash injury, minor neck pain, headaches, and lower back pain are all too frequently minimised, ignored, or dismissed as unimportant. This should not be happening. Can you imagine how other health issues would be handled if they were treated with such zeal?
The injury causes of whiplash injuries are complex. Discs can herniate, spine fractures can occur, muscles can stretch and tear, and ligaments can also partially tear or burst. There are many signs that can cause pain in the neck or back, ranging in severity from a minor discomfort to a serious impairment as a result of these injuries. Short-term back and neck pain is very distressing, but chronic back and neck pain is much more difficult to manage.
Though whiplash is a complicated injury, the spinal injuries that result from it often follow a pattern. Muscles and ligaments near the injury site become irritated. Irritation leads to inflammation. The majority of symptoms occur as a result of the inflammatory phase, which often results in the formation of scar tissue, which may cause these symptoms to become permanent or chronic.
