If it feels like car accidents have been on the rise lately, you may be correct to assume that. At Complete Health Chiropractic Littleton, we have been seeing more and more patients who have suffered from injuries incurred during a car accident. This may be of course be due to the population boom that Colorado has been experiencing. According to the Denver Post, Colorado has added 77, 059 residents in the past year. If you are having pain due to a car accident, Complete Health Chiropractic Littleton is your Littleton Chiropractor trained to correct these injuries. Some common symptoms from these injuries include but are not limited too, headaches, neck pain, back pain, abdominal pain, numbness and bruising, and shoulder pain.
If you have been in a car accident, recently or not, you may begin to experience pain from an injury that could have occurred during the accident. This pain can begin immediately, or be delayed days to weeks. If the injury is left untreated, symptoms could occur later in life and be much harder to correct. At Complete Health Chiropractic Littleton, we recommend that everyone involved in a car accident should be evaluated for potential injury. We are specially trained at Complete Health Chiropractic to identify and correct injuries that occur during an accident such as whiplash. We are, to our knowledge, the only Littleton Chiropractor trained in and certified in Chiropractic BioPhysics spinal rehab techniques.
If you are looking for a chiropractor for car accident pain, please give Complete Health Chiropractic Littleton a call. Depending on your car insurance provider and the plan you are on, you may not be responsible to payments for healthcare costs that are due to an accident. Regardless of insurance coverage, the most important thing is to maintain your bodies health and ability to function normally; without pain! You only have one body and one spine to support it throughout your entire life. If your spine gets injured due to car accident or another reason, it will begin to break down over time due to gravity puts improper forces and stresses through it. The spine has a specific shape and specific structure designed to deal with the weight and stresses of gravity without breaking down, when it is in this correct position. The structures of the spine designed to carry the weight of the spine are the facet joints. These facet joints stacked on top of each other all the way up the spine create what is known as the articular pillars. (Pillars - plural - because there are two facet joints per vertebrae in the spine. One on each side, left and right, along the backside of the spine.) These joints can be injured or stretched beyond their normal limits during an accident. When these joints become misaligned, they can be put in a compromised position every time you use them. We would encourage you to schedule an initial exam if you have experienced a car accident, even if your symptoms are minimal or come and go.
