Personal Injury/Auto Accidents
An auto accident is a scary experience. Even if you walk away without any broken bones, the accident may have done serious damage to your spine - an accident injury you may not realize has occurred until much later. If you suffer from chronic back pain, neck pain or headache as the result of a car accident, it's never too late to get lasting help for a personal injury.
During an auto accident, you may experience whiplash, an injury that occurs to the neck. When a car is struck from behind, the force of this impact causes a misalignment of the cervical spine, straining the neck's muscles and ligaments. This misalignment can cause chronic neck pain and stiffness, headache at the base of the skull, dizziness, blurred vision and fatigue. You may also struggle to concentrate, experience ringing in your ears, have memory problems and suffer from sleep disturbances. While prescription painkillers and muscle relaxants can temporarily ease pain, this relief is fleeting.
Lower back pain is also a common accident injury following a car crash. During impact, the lower back may become injured during the movement of the crash. The only way to correct this injury and permanently relieve pain is by restoring proper alignment to the spine. Hands-on chiropractic adjustments reposition the lower back so it is no longer compressed upon the nerve. A chiropractic adjustment will safely restore alignment to your spine.
