What are the dangers on my spine after an auto accident?
Neck and back injuries are common during car accidents; the impact strains the ligaments and muscles in the back, and the facet joints bear the brunt of the force. This can result in several injuries.
What is whiplash?
Whiplash is a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck,like the cracking of a whip.
Why should you be concerned?
It is critical that chiropractic care is sought immediately after an automobile accident since allowing the effects of whiplash to go untreated can encourage long-term pain.
Why should you seek treatment immediately?
It can take days, weeks or even months for major symptoms to show up, which is why immediate chiropractic care is essential to maintaining the health of a spine that has been through a trauma. Early care and treatment means better healing and recovery.
