Even a crash at 2 miles per hour can knock your body out of alignment. However, you probably won't notice the effects of your auto injuries right away. That's particularly true of whiplash and neck injuries. Tiny tears in the muscles of your neck don't cause you any problems until they begin to heal, days to weeks after they are injured. The repair process for injured muscles involves inflammation and swelling that pulls directly on your spine, and then when your spine pinches nerves coming out of your neck bones, you have pain and loss of mobility. This is why it is important to schedule an appointment with a chiropractor as soon as possible following an auto accident.
Untreated auto injuries usually just get worse and worse. You may have a collection of symptoms that don't seem connected to your injuries. At first, you may just feel "off." It may make you anxious or fidgety. You may have an odd reaction to heat or cold. You may feel a little stiff, but it may come and go. There are cases where severe pain and immobility only started several years after a car accident. The longer you put off your visit with a chiropractor, the worse the pain and immobility get.
Our chiropractor can help you regain normal alignment of your spine through chiropractic adjustments. There are many more techniques for relieving pain and restoring range of motion. Let our chiropractor show you the right treatments and the right exercises to do at home to relieve your pain and restore your mobility following your auto accident.
