Injured In a Car Accident?
Auto accidents are an unfortunate aspect of life. Injuries resulting from auto accidents can range from minor abrasions to more severe injuries like whiplash and acute low back pain. Auto accidents are one of the most severe traumatic incidents that a body can be subjected to. During an accident several traumatic forces are put on the body.
Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injury
Sudden excessive forces as in auto accidents can cause many injuries to the human body including muscles, tendons, ligaments, discs, nerves, and moving bones of the spinal column out of their proper relational position. This misalignment is called a spinal subluxation. The most common symptoms of whiplash include neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, stiffness or limited mobility in the neck and back, headache, dizziness, numbness, tingling, radiating pain down the arm(s) and/or leg(s), jaw pain, and fatigue.
If these misalignments heal in a misaligned position it can cause a persistent irritation as this area of the spine attempts to go through its normal range of motion. This irritation can become a stronger and sharper pain and even begin radiating away from the spine down into the shoulder(s), arm(s) or hand(s) or the lower back, thigh(s), and leg(s).
If uncorrected, these subluxations can lead to accelerated disc degeneration and development of degenerative arthritis. For this reason it is very important to have a proper evaluation after being involved in even a minor accident. The earlier the injury is treated, the greater the possibility of quick and complete correction.
