CAR / AUTO ACCIDENT TREATMENT & THERAPY
Car accidents can cause a myriad of soft tissue injuries and subluxations. The result of such injuries can include vertigo, pain, decreased range of motion, and affects on your daily activities. Often, the symptoms take a few days to set in after the accident or the pain will “go away” for a period of time before returning more severely than initially. This presentation is especially common with whiplash and when left untreated, the pain can persist, cause a number of other compensatory injuries, and even become permanent.
Whiplash associated with car accidents is a major cause of neck/back pain. According to the research, whiplash can happen in motor vehicle accidents as slow as 5 mph! Whiplash symptoms can remain hidden for weeks after an accident, but studies have shown that the sooner you start chiropractic care after a motor vehicle accident, the better you willfeel in the short term, and the fewer long-term symptoms you will experience. At Active Edge Chiropractic our goal is to return your musculature and joint alignment back to, if not better than your pre-injury status. We address all aspects of your injuries simultaneously to return your muscular balance, joint motion, strength, and overall function.
