Can Chiropractic Care Help my Neck after a Car Accident?
Being involved in a car accident is always a surprise and tends to ruin and disrupt your day. The amount of stress you body has to deal with, physically, emotionally, mentally and hormonally, can be overwhelming and prolonged. Your spine acts as the base and support for your entire body as well as houses and protects the vital nervous system. Your spine undergoes stresses involved in a car accident that can throw your spine out of proper, ‘normal’ alignment. This can cause things such as pain, dizziness, arm pain and begin the process of degenerative arthritis in the spine.
When you are involved in a car accident, you should absolutely have your spine examined by a trained CBP Chiropractic Doctor following a car accident. Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) trained chiropractors are the only doctors certified in spinal curve correction that have the research to back up the treatment. If the spine remains untreated and the misalignment remains, early degeneration may begin in the spine. This will cause further pain and dysfunction as well as decrease your range of motion. Unfortunately, many people are plagued with some of these symptoms as they get older because their spines have misaligned at some point in their life. If you have any sort of traumatic injury, including falls, please have you spine assessed as it is easier and quicker to treat right away.
