Get Your Life Back On Track

Working with a chiropractor after a motor vehicle accident can help you get on the right track to healing. Studies have shown that even cars moving at a speed of 2.5 mph can cause injury to the neck from whiplash as well as injury to the back.

Motor vehicles are designed to withstand damaged caused by impact at a speed of 5 mph, however the body is not built to handle that kind of impact which results in injury. When the impact occurs and the vehicle does not absorb the impact the passengers inside the vehicle can sustain injuries to the neck, back and even the spine.

External injuries such as broken bones and lacerations are healed with time and typically do not cause recurring pain but with damage done to the spine, pain and suffering could occur for years. When damage is done to soft tissue areas of the spine, the muscles and ligaments, pain can occur long term if not treated properly.

Headaches, spinal disc degeneration, chronic muscle spasms, arthritis, tight muscles are all long term effects of soft tissue injuries if not treated after an accident. Sometimes the pain from accidents do not surface right away but injuries to the joints from accidents may cause the body to develop post-traumatic osteoarthritis, which is when the body jump starts itself into a form of arthritis caused by the accident.
