Auto Accident Injury
Most auto accidents occur with sudden acceleration, abrupt stops, or both. The body, muscles and spinal joints will be stretched too far and the spinal joints will be compressed together. This causes the joints and muscles having inflammation which leads to scar tissue. Soft tissue injuries that occur can be:
- Joint pain
- Muscle spasms
When left untreated this can cause severe long term health issues, neck and back pain, including headaches.
Chiropractic care for auto injuries is effective because spinal adjustments address the root cause for a patient’s pain – the spinal misalignment – rather than covering up pain symptoms. The force of an auto accident injury can knock the spine out of alignment, which then causes a slipped or herniated disc to compress nearby nerves. This nerve compression triggers pain and may even limit an individual’s range of motion. Hands-on Chiropractic adjustments are a safe and effective treatment technique for restoring proper alignment to the spine, which alleviates this compression and reduces pain.
