Chiropractic Care for Common Auto Injuries
Understanding The Injury
The sudden impact involved in most car accidents can cause severe jarring of the highly complex neuromuscular system, especially in the neck and back. This is often the area where many accident victims experience discomfort. What may initially be minor aches and pains can be a signal that more significant damage occurred. Because the neuromuscular system effects far reaching parts of the body, damage can cause pain throughout the body.
Whiplash, a straining of the neck, is common in car accidents. This occurs when the head rapidly snaps back and forth or side to side on the neck. Symptoms can range from headaches to complete immobility. In some cases, sufferers may experience sleeplessness, irritability, tingling in the extremities and other pain. It can be tempting to suffer through the initial pain of whiplash but left untreated, issues may get worse and could result in long lasting unnecessary pain and suffering.
