Have you or someone you know been involved in an auto accident recently? Even a car crash that is seemingly minor can cause serious injury to the driver and passengers.
One of the most common injuries from a car crash is whiplash. Whiplash occurs when a sudden, jarring movement of the head is sustained backward, forward or even to the side. Whiplash destabilizes the spine and causes severe pain as well as these other symtoms:
• Neck pain and stiffness
• Headaches and reduced range of motion
• Back and shoulder pain
• Arm pain
• Dizziness and blurred vision
Early care and treatment means full healing and recovery. That’s why it is critical that chiropractic care is sought immediately after an automobile accident, even if you don’t have active symptoms right away. In fact it can take days, weeks or even months for major symptoms to show up, which is why chiropractic care is essential to maintaining the health of a spine that has been through such a trauma.
When your neck has been jarred or thrown forward unexpectedly and beyond normal limits, it can sustain stretched ligaments and even tears. Muscle strains and/or sprains can also occur, making it extremely painful to perform your daily physical activities.
