Chiropractic Helps Neck Pain After Car Crashes

Chiropractic Therapy Extremely Effective for Neck Issues After Auto Injury

You’re driving along and then BAM you’ve been in a auto accident. Even if the impact didn't seem that bad at first, you might find yourself with issues and a stiff neck over the next few days or weeks.

Why Does This Happen? Can Chiropractic Adjustments Help?

A car accident happens very quickly, 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 auto injury, and it can be very tender. In fact, whiplash can cause neck pain 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.

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

If you are suffering with irritation due to a auto accident, even a minor one, you may feel neck pain as a result of whiplash. Don't wait to get care. Research shows that chiropractic is best for these kinds of injuries, so call ChiroWerx in Charlotte, NC right away if you've been in a car crash.
