Chiropractic Treatment for Car Accident Victims
There are injuries that occur in car accidents that are quite obvious. Things such as broken limbs and bruising are easy to notice, and you’ll get treatment for them easily. It’s rarely this simple though, as the true impact that a car crash has on a person’s body won’t be noticed until symptoms emerge.
The most common injury that car accident victims suffer is a much more subtle injury, one that is rarely felt immediately and that isn’t detected by x-rays – whiplash. Whiplash happens when the car transitions from travelling at a high speed to being almost completely stationary.
The human body simply isn’t designed to withstand this sudden change in force and it usually results in tears in the fibers in the neck. This pain is usually in the neck, and can be extremely painful and debilitating. It might not be immediately apparent that you’ve got whiplash as the confusion and adrenaline from being involved in an accident may dull the initial pain. Rather, whiplash tends to affect the patient anytime from a few hours up to a few days later.
As the spine is an important part of the upper back and neck, chiropractic treatment is often the best way to resolve pain in this area. A chiropractic adjustment is ideal for whiplash as well as other injuries to the back that occur as the result of a car crash. While these subtle injuries may not be easy to detect at first, getting the help of an independent, third-party chiropractor, could help you to ensure that these injuries don’t turn into major health problems for you.
