Neck and Spinal Trauma
A car accident can damage your neck and spine in several ways. For example, the impact of a car accident can dislocate intervertebral discs in the cervical spine. This can result in a slipped disc between the vertebrae. The outcome is nerve-damage, pinched nerves, numbness, pain, and weakness. This can affect more than just the neck and the spine. The discomfort can travel down the neck to the shoulders, arms, hands, and fingers.
Effective Care From Our Chiropractor
Chiropractors play a key role in car accident injury recovery. Neck and spinal trauma are common results of a car accident. The force from colliding with an object can put a tremendous amount of stress on the spine, leaving those involved with whiplash and other associated injuries. Adhesions, which are bands of scar-like tissue, often form following a car accident. When a person develops adhesions, tissues and organs can stick together, restricting movement and impairing body function. Adhesions can also be quite painful. Our chiropractor can step in, assess your injury, and create a chiropractic care plan to encourage healing and restore your strength.

Our chiropractor has the skills to target specific areas of injury and begin the healing and strengthening process. This often includes breaking up scar tissue which can speed up the healing process. Massage can also play a role by breaking down collagen fibers, which can result in scar tissue. Neck and spinal trauma treatments like these can decrease pain and speed up the healing process.
