Chiropractors are able to treat neck and back injuries, whiplash and help with soft tissue pain. Many times, individuals who have been injured in a car accident have so much muscle pain and stiffness that they simply cannot function normally. This discomfort, on top of other injuries, can be a serious issue. When you treat an injury like this right away, you are putting the body in the best possible position to heal and recover quickly. This is why you need to visit a chiropractor right away. We can help put the spine in line and help the body start healing right away, help to relieve your pain and provide exercises that can act as physical therapy for injuries and give you nutritional advice that can also help with the healing process.
The first step on the road to recovering from these injuries is to make an appointment.
You may also be suffering from headaches, pain or general discomfort as a result of a whiplash-related injury. Most people assume that whiplash injuries only occur during high-speed accidents, but a change in speed of just 2-3 miles per hour during an accident can cause them.
Some individuals experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away, such as blurred vision, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, reduced range-of-motion and arm pain. Whiplash can also result in minor back injuries, muscle injuries, ligament problems and disc damage. Other individuals may not experience any serious injuries right away and may think they are just “stiff” or “sore” after the accident, when serious injuries could be forming.
If left untreated, these issues can go on to cause other additional serious health problems. In fact, you may not think you have been injured after a car accident, and then start to experience discomfort or headaches several months after the fact. This is why you should always visit a Chiropractor for an evaluation, even if you think there may not be a serious injury to blame.
