Have You Been In An Auto Accident?
Even if the crash seems minor, the damage to your spine may not be. Even slight pain can indicate damage to the joints, ligaments, tendons or muscles in your spine. If left untreated these injuries can cause chronic pain of the neck, back or shoulders, decreased range of motion (for example, not being able to turn your head), frequent headaches, along with a myriad of other problems.
Sometimes, it takes weeks, even months, for inflammation and scar tissue from a whiplash injury to cause pain and suffering. So long, in fact, that you may not even associate it with that little fender bender.
Auto injuries are a common source of chronic pain. Often, people may not think of going to a chiropractor after their accident, or they may be unaware that the care is covered by their auto insurance. Getting the proper treatment early after your crash can be very important in recovering quickly.
Chiropractic and massage therapy have been proven to help reduce the symptoms associated with spinal injuries and to help prevent chronic pain. That’s because we get to the underlying trauma that you experienced and help your body heal naturally.
