Chiropractic Relieves Neck Pain After Auto Injury

Chiropractic Therapy Extremely Effective for Neck Issues After Car Crashes

You’re driving along and then BAM you’ve been in a auto accident. Even if the impact didn't seem very forceful when it happened, you might find yourself with problems and a stiff neck over the next few days or weeks.

Understanding Why This Happens? Can Chiropractic Help?

A auto injury happens very fast, and the forces on your body can be quite dramatic, causing your neck muscles and ligaments to stretch or tear. Whiplash is the most common type of injury sustained in a car wreck, and it can be very tender. In fact, whiplash can cause neck discomfort that lasts for months or even years.

There are a few factors that can increase your risk of injury. First, rear-end collisions tend to cause more neck injuries than frontal collisions. Second, there is some evidence that women are more likely to get injured in a auto accident than men. Finally, if your car has poor headrests, they may not have adequately protected your head and neck from the force of the impact.

Luckily, there are a few things you can do to ease your neck pain after a auto injury. Heat or ice therapy may also help to settle your sore muscles. Gentle stretching exercises can help keep your muscles from getting too stiff. And, of course, chiropractic to help restore the healthy functioning of your neck and spine.

If you are suffering with discomfort due to a car crash, even a minor one, you may have neck pain as a result of whiplash. Don't wait to get help. Research shows that chiropractic is best for these types of injuries, so call Dr. Russell in Henderson right away if you've been in a auto collision.
