Car accidents are one of the most terrifying and overwhelming experiences for everyone involved in the incident. With no time to prepare for trauma and serious issues, your physical and emotional wellness can be severely jeopardized in an instant. Even after the incident, it can be difficult to know how best to deal with this. A positive step towards recovery in seeking chiropractic care for treatment of injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents.
Chiropractic care is exceptional in the treatment of soft tissue injuries, especially of the spine, sprains, muscle & ligament strains and more. Medical professionals often prescribe pain medication to help patients dealing with debilitating pain. Chiropractic care offers a natural alternative that can help heal even severe motor vehicle injuries without the use of drugs.
Chiropractors specialize in neck and back injuries, whiplash injuries and soft tissue pain and injuries. Our team can help clients suffering from severe muscle pain and stiffness to the point they can’t normally function. This discomfort can lead to more serious issues. Whiplash, for example, is among the most common car accident injuries and is also the hardest to treat. It only takes a slight change in car speed to injure the neck and micro-tears can easily develop in the surrounding ligaments. Still, accident victims often don’t notice any pain until later when the micro-tears begin to swell and cause symptoms including blurred vision, neck pain, headaches, dizziness, shoulder pain, reduced range of motion in the neck, arm pain, neck stiffness and lower back pain.
