Forces absorbed by the body in a car accident can cause significant structural damage. Symptoms often may not show up right away and can be long lasting: six weeks or much longer. Most medical doctors just offer dangerous pain medications that only treat the symptoms.
When a part of the body is whipped back and then forward beyond its normal limits, micro-tears can develop in the surrounding ligaments. Yet many accident victims don’t notice any pain at first. It’s not until the micro-tears start to swell that the symptoms set in, including:
• Blurred vision
• Neck pain
• Shoulder pain
• Reduced range of motion in the neck
• Arm pain
• Neck stiffness
• Low back pain
• Leg Pain
Chiropractic Care can decrease spasms, free joint movement restrictions, lengthen contracted tissues, strengthen weak tissues and decrease pain and inflammation. Most importantly Chiropractic Care helps the body to heal properly long-term, not just treat the symptoms. Call our office today!
