Have you been involved in an car accident? If you have, you may have sustained hidden injuries that you are unaware are a result of that motor vehicle accident.
Whiplash is one of the most common car accident injuries. During a crash, the force of impact can "whip" the neck backwards and forwards beyond its normal range of motion. Whiplash can cause serious damage to the cervical spine, leading to chronic neck pain, headaches, difficulty concentrating, visual disturbances and much more. Whiplash can also damage the soft tissues and muscles in the neck, making it difficult to turn your neck or look up and down.Whiplash therapy/rehab is a natural, non-invasive treatment the restores alignment to the cervical spine. Elite Health and Wellness will provide immediate pain relief while also helping the soft tissues in the neck heal.
Many car accident injuries result in a herniated disc. The impact of the crash can cause the disc to herniate at any level in the spine. If the herniated disc compresses nearby nerves, patients may experience pain in the back, shoulders, arms, legs and/or buttocks. Chiropractic is essential in order to provide long-term pain relief. While medication can temporarily relieve back pain, only chiropractic adjustments can restore alignment to the spine, relieving pressure on the nerves, creating healthier discs and providing long-term relief.
If you are the victim of an auto accident, it is important that you seek immediate care. While serious damage to the musculoskeletal system can occur immediately, many patients may not experience pain until weeks, months, or even years after the accident. A prompt diagnosis and treatment can speed your injury recovery process and reduce the build-up of scar tissue. It is scar tissue that restricts function and accelerates the degenerative process in the near by tissues and joints.
