Chiropractic Therapy Treats Neck Problems After Car Accidents

You’re driving along and then BAM you’ve been in a car wreck. Even if the impact didn't seem very forceful when it happened, you might find yourself with issues and a stiff neck over the next few days or weeks.

Understanding Why This Occurs? What Can You Do?

A auto injury happens very fast, 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 car accident, and it can be very tender. In fact, whiplash can cause neck problems 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 hurt in a car accident than men. Lastly, 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 reduce your neck pain after a car wreck. Heat or ice treatment may also help to calm your sore muscles. Gentle stretching exercises can help keep your muscles from getting too stiff. And, of course, chiropractic treatment to help restore the healthy functioning of your neck and spine.

If you are suffering with irritation because of a auto accident, even a small one, you may experience neck pain as a result of whiplash. Don't wait to get relief. Studies shows that chiropractic treatment is best for these types of injuries, so call Dr. Green in Estero, Bonita Springs right away if you've been in a car crash.
