Healing after an Accident
If you’ve been involved in an Auto Accident, you may be experiencing symptoms that include neck pain, back pain, and headaches. These are very common and can present after even the most mild of impacts. Chiropractic is a great option when pursuing care to restore your function and overcome pain.
What happens during the collision?
Even when wearing a seatbelt, you head is vulnerable to rapid changes in direction during an accident. This can create an immense amount of stress on structures of the head and neck. Relative to the position of impact, the head is thrown towards to the collision and then rebounds away. This can result in numerous types of injuries. A muscular strain is what we refer to as “soft tissue damage” because your tendons and muscles are soft in comparison to your bones. Soft tissue injury to the muscles and ligaments of the neck and shoulders cause an inflammatory reaction that leads to subsequent locking (tightness) of the tissues as a protective response. Other common injuries that might not be felt immediately are disc injuries. Discs are the cushions between your vertebrae. These injuries can be tears in the fibers of the disc, bulges, and even herniations due to compression or shearing. Chiropractors at Cross-Up use multiple soft tissue therapies along with adjustments, corrective exercise, and acupuncture to provide you with the best care possible after an auto accident.
