Odds are likely that you will be involved in at least one fender-bender during your lifetime, whether you’re driving or simply a passenger. And even a minor accident at slow speed can cause trauma to your body, even if you don’t feel any pain afterwards. The impact of the collision can cause soft tissue damage to your neck and spine. Weeks or months later, you can develop headaches, back pain and difficulty concentrating.
Orlando Chiropractor for car injuries
If you have been involved in an accident, it’s important to consult a chiropractor for an examination as soon as possible. Whiplash is one of the most common auto injuries. During an impact – even at a slow rate of speed – your neck can suddenly “whip” forward, backward or sideways – causing trauma to the soft tissue underneath, and strain to the cervical spine.
Frequently, people think their aches and pains will go away on their own after an accident. But that’s not true, and patients who delay treatment only prolong their suffering. Other times, people will turn to prescription pain killers to ease their symptoms, but patients risk becoming dependent on them if used for too long a period. In addition, prescription pain medications only mask the underlying cause of the pain, and hide the build up of scar tissue. Chiropractic care is a conservative, non-invasive treatment that can restore alignment to the spine, relieve pain and prevent future injury.
