Auto & Sports Injury
An auto accident can cause many different issues. Often an accident can throw your neck, your spine, or even your entire body out of alignment. Did you know that chiropractic care can provide a drug-free solution to help relieve pain? If you are suffering from back or neck pain as the result of an auto accident you may have a spine or whiplash injury. If you do not receive proper care in a timely manner these injuries may cause negative impacts on your daily living which can lead to months, years or even a lifetime of chronic pain.
When you are in an auto accident your musculoskeletal system is knocked out of alignment due to the force of the accident; neck and back pain may result. When this occurs, you may not only have muscle soreness and stiffness but you may also experience pain in other parts of the body such as leg pain, numbness, headaches, etc.
Traditional medicine generally relies on medication to mask pain symptoms. Chiropractic treatments and Applied Kinesiology addresses the underlying injury. Medications can provide immediate relief but do not offer long-term solutions. In addition, medicines do not help much in terms of regaining lost mobility due to injuries. Chiropractic adjustments can not only restore function to muscles and nerves, but it can also bring back alignment to your spine.
