Car Accident Rehab
After motor vehicle collisions, it is very important to make sure that your body received no lasting damage. In fact, an estimated 15 to 40 percent of those injured in car accidents develop ongoing chronic pain. Thankfully, Allmed chiropractors can treat car accident injuries, such as whiplash, head or back pain, and migraines. Our chiropractors use manual adjustments, massage therapy, and connective exercises to make you feel better and prevent your condition from getting worse.
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries that can result from a car accident, and it can occur for many other reasons, such as from falling, sports injuries, or other accidents. Whiplash involves your neck being forcibly “whipped” beyond its normal range of motion, such as from the sudden stops involved in car accidents. Whiplash dangerously affects the muscles and tissues in the back of your neck and can cause stiffness, back or neck pain, and migraines. You could feel nothing for days, weeks, or even months, making it absolutely critical to treat whiplash immediately.
What happens to your neck in a whiplash type of accident?
Whiplash injuries most often result in sprains and/or strains of the neck’s muscular and ligamentous components. The ligaments that help support, protect, and restrict excessive movement of the vertebrae can become damaged, irritated, or even tear. The joints in the back of the spine, called the facet joints, are covered by ligaments called facet capsules, which seem to be particularly susceptible to whiplash injury.
With chiropractic care, the musculoskeletal system is addressed, and we are able to take a 360 degree approach to treatment for whiplash. Our chiropractors can increase the range of motion in the joints with chiropractic manipulations and treat the muscular spasms with a myofascial release technique. This sort of care can make a drastic change in your whiplash pain!
