Do you suffer from: headaches, irritability, dizziness, stiff neck, or back pain after an auto accident?
The tragic result of uncorrected trauma can lead to risk of arthritis. Occupants often suffer more than the car & sustain injury from auto accidents. The Journal of Clinical Orthopedics states “that strain injuries to the spine, typically vehicular accidents, increase arthritic development 6.5 times.” The neck is prone to arthritis. It is especially affected by minor fender benders even if there is no damage to the car. The reason is that the energy of the collision of the car is absorbed & transferred to the driver and passengers of the car receiving the impact. The use of seat belts can actually accelerate the whipping motion of the neck, known as post traumatic whiplash. The backward & forward motion of the neck is faster than the muscles can recover. Soft tissue injury and mis-alignments of the vertebrae will occur. The spinal imbalance of the neck and other areas of the spine often goes overlooked, the body tries to reinforce the affected joint with stiffness, muscle spasms, swelling, and pain may be immediate or in later stages, which causes the chronic condition to progress toward developing arthritis of the joints. Initially medical doctors may prescribe pain medication, or anti-inflammatory drugs which may give temporary relief. The uncorrected and affected joints may cause irritation to the nerves, discs, and soft tissue This condition is very responsive to chiropractic care, soft tissue therapeutic massage, rehab exercises to strengthen & increase flexibility.
