Auto Accident

AlignmentDamage to the vehicle does not reflect the degree of damage to the occupants. In an accident, the head and neck of the injured person is accelerated 3 to 5 times faster than the acceleration of the car. This sudden change in speed (about 1/10 of second) produces damage to muscles, nerves, and ligaments. The soft tissue injuries incurred during an auto accident cannot be seen externally and can heal with scar tissue which can result in pain years later.

The damage to the spine can lead to recurring headaches, neck pain, jaw pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, hand pain, numbness and tingling, as well as memory loss, irritability, insomnia, depression, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and concentration problems; stiffness, chronic muscle tension and spasms, lower back pain, spinal disc degeneration, inflamed arthritis, sore and tight inflexible muscles, a greater chance of repeat injury and poor posture.

Delays in the onset of pain are also common. Even if you are not in pain following a whiplash incident, it is important to receive prompt attention to your injury, as the structural balance of your neck and spine is important to your health.

Remember, nothing is more important than your health, especially when you start to lose it. Several studies show that a large percentage of whiplash victims will still have pain years after their accidents. Pain pills won’t heal inflamed tendons, muscle relaxers won’t heal torn muscles, and cervical collars won’t restore graceful spinal curves. Chiropractic care, coupled with a specific exercise program is the best treatment for patients injured in a motor vehicle accident.
