In any car accident, there is a large amount of force
and stress placed on your spine and the supporting musculature. For this reason, it is very important to seek
chiropractic treatment after any type of accident to help prevent any permanent damage that may occur.
The body can react to an accident in a number of different ways and can produce a
wide range of symptoms.
Some symptoms may include:
- Neck and Back
- Loss of Appetite,
- Difficulty Concentrating or
- Numbness and Tingling in the
- pain upon standing and
- difficulty walking
Many of these symptoms occur because of injuries sustained to the spinal column and
the supporting musculature. These intense forces cause the muscles to react in such a way that it may put an
increased level of stress on the vertebrae that protect the spinal column.
Our nervous system is protected by our spinal cord and
due to the extreme forces of any accident; our nerves can be pulled, pinched, stretched, or irritated causing us an
increase in our symptoms. The cervical spine will be forced forward and then snapped backwards in most cases. Any
acceleration/deceleration injury to the cervical spine is better known as a whiplash injury.
