Today, we are going to talk about car accidents and why you should be including chiropractic care within your treatment plan.
Many people do not think about chiropractic care and the benefits it can give them after facing injuries in a car accident. Fact is, it does not take a lot of force to injure your spine.
Car accidents are known to more commonly occur at stop signs, stop lights, and by being rear-ended by another car. This action causes the neck to move backward, forward, and back again. There are ligaments within your neck that are stretched when such an accident happens, causing the vertebrae to become misaligned.
Understand that it only takes the weight of a dime to compress a nerve and cause pain! Whiplash can cause neck pain, upper back pain, migraines, insomnia, and lack of energy. When your nerves are irritated, there can be side effects whether you feel it instantly or not.
The damage to the car is not correlated with the damage caused within your body. Therefore, no matter the intensity of the damage, you should seek care following your accident and get checked over!
Endorphins and adrenaline are released within the body and cause you to not feel pain the day of an accident. Once these chemicals subside, the pain will begin to affect you. When it does, my team here at Lowcountry Chiropractic will welcome you!
