How Chiropractors Help Auto Accident-Related Pain
Auto accidents, both low impact and high impact, often result in acute and systemic pain. Long-lasting conditions such as arthritis can result if not proactively treated properly. We routinely treat auto accident victims with whiplash and other accident-related spine and neck pain.
Whiplash happens when the body is thrown in one direction and then immediately after pulled in the opposite direction. This results to micro-tears which affect the surrounding ligaments. The pain can be unnoticeable on the day of the accident but when micro-tears begin to swell that other manifestation including unbearable pain set in. This includes headaches, blurred vision, dizziness, neck pain, shoulder pain, range of motion in the neck is reduced, neck stiffness, and low back pain.
