Car Accident Injuries
Keeping Your Body in Balance
You may not feel anything right after the car accident, but numerous studies show most people experience a wave of symptoms a few days later. Your spine is whipped forward and backward during the accident. Bones can slip out of position and inflammation builds up. This process causes tissues to break down, leading to symptoms of pain.
It is vital to visit your chiropractor not only because of pain, but because slight changes can wreak havoc on your spine, nerves can be bothered and your overall body balance disturbed.
Signs of Injury
Pain or discomfort indicate that your soft tissue has been hurt. A chiropractor can easily determine the severity of the tear and what can be done to minimize pain and speed up the recovery.
Some car accidents can lead to disc bulges or herniation and can cause chronic pain after the accident. Other symptoms you may experience include
- Decrease in range of motion
- Increased stiffness
- Muscle spasm
- Scar tissue buildup
