Auto Accident Injuries and Chiropractic Care
If you have been in an auto accident, there are some important things you should note. You can be injured even if your car is not damaged. A fender bender can cause lasting injury to your spine such as whiplash. Getting the right kind of care from an auto accident injury specialist can make the difference between total recovery and spending a lifetime in pain and suffering. At Revive Chiropractic in Chandler, AZ, our team is uniquely skilled to help you recover from car accident injuries.
How A Chiropractic Exam Can Help You
Many people walk away from a car crash feeling fine. They may get checked out in an ER and told they are good to go. But a quick trip to the ER right after an accident is not enough to detect subtle injuries.
There is a unique relationship between the muscles in the neck to the cervical spine, the vertebrae at the top of your spine. Often auto injuries are not immediately caught after an accident. Your neck muscles are attached directly to your spine. A car crash — even at 2 miles per hour — may result in microscopic tears in your neck muscles.
Your body repairs these tears with inflammation, but the process does not start right away. The swelling of injured neck muscles may not create symptoms until days to weeks to months after the accident. These swollen muscles pull the spine out of alignment, and pressure on muscles and nerves becomes a feature of daily life.
Sometimes people injured in auto accidents don’t even remember the accident that caused their injury. Your chiropractor can recognize the early symptoms of neck and back injuries and get you back on the road to recovery. If you have been in an auto accident seek a chiropractic consultation.
