Chiropractic Treatments for Neck Pain, Back Pain, Headaches and Migraines Resulting from a Car Accident Injury

Car accident injury is never expected, but can leave us experiencing pain, discomfort and missing out on activities of daily living. In some cases, although we’ve been involved in an accident, some of us don’t experience any pain at all. Whether you’re suffering from pain or not, immediate chiropractic attention following an auto accident is imperative to aligning whole-body health.

When force of impact is applied to soft tissues such as ligaments, tendons and muscles, strain, sprain, contraction and over-stretching of these structures can often occur. Neck pain, back pain, headaches and migraines act as signals to the central nervous system allowing us to become aware that postural alignment has been compromised. While car accident injury often involves sudden uncontrolled movement in the neck and back and can result directly in pain and discomfort, some patients report a pain-free incident. Whether you’re experiencing discomfort or pain free, immediate action is the key to maintaining spinal alignment.

Why is your immediate response so important? Reporting your experience directly following an injury ensures that healing takes place to restore communication between the brain and spine, improving range of motion, repairing soft tissues, aligning the spinal column and preventing further damage from the force you were subjected to during the car accident.

Reporting your experience of an accident right away is also beneficial to provide your chiropractor with the most detailed information possible. Because our caring chiropractors offer each patient personalized care, the details you provide help develop a comprehensive treatment plan that will involve postural screening, postural realignment techniques, at-home corrective exercises and specialized lifestyle suggestions that may involve nutritional or supplemental suggestions. Every detail counts- we will ask questions about the direction of force or if you experienced whiplash, immediate neck pain or back pain.

While pain may be absent, force creates trauma and trauma creates bruising and swelling that may take days or even a week to settle into the body. Chiropractic care assists in comprehensively evaluating even the most subtle subluxation to prevent an instance of pain. Our chiropractors will apply a myriad of techniques and prescribe physical therapy to complement your physical rehabilitation. By restoring communication between the nervous system and rest of the body, soft tissues and bones will begin to work together again.
