Whiplash & Common Injuries from Car Accidents
The most common injury sustained during a car accident is whiplash, caused by a rapid forceful movement of the head beyond the normal range of motion. Hyperextension injuries such as whiplash overstretch the soft tissues such as ligaments and muscles in the neck and can lead to a number of different conditions. Oftentimes, the symptoms of whiplash are not immediately experienced and may take months. Unfortunately, delays in detecting injuries like whiplash allow for more chronic and serious spinal conditions to increasingly develop as time passes.
Common symptoms associated with auto accidents include:
- Neck Pain/ Stiffness
- Numbness or Tingling in the Arm and/or Shoulder
- Ringing in the Ears
- Jaw/ Face pain
- Low Back Pain/ Stiffness
- Pain between the shoulder blades
- Muscle spasms
- Shoulder pain
- Pain in legs/feet
After sustaining a car accident related injury, such as whiplash, early chiropractic care is the most effective form of health care. Chiropractic adjustments allow the spine to more quickly normalize and aid in new soft tissue and ligament alignment, thus limiting scar tissue formation. Contrary to “conventional” reactions to car accidents, over bracing (ex., neck braces) further reduces motion and enhances scar tissue formation. Anti-inflammatory medications (ex., ibuprofen) may interfere with and slow soft tissue healing. With expert care assisting you to maintain optimal spinal health, your body will know how to heal itself.
Sea Change Chiropractic believes car accident victims deserve the right to restore their health and wellness to the condition present prior to the accident.
