Do you have neck pain after a car accident in Depew, NY? Dr. Palmer offers efficient, drug-free relief of whiplash and other auto injuries.
Car crashes, even at low speeds, often cause injury to the joints and ligaments of the neck. As a result, neck pain is among the most common auto injury symptoms. Without proper care, these injuries can result in chronic, long-term pain. Depew chiropractor Dr. William Palmer sees many patients who have been involved in a car accident and experienced neck pain. He provides chiropractic treatments that can reduce pain and prevent long-term symptoms without the need for surgery or medication.
One of the most common causes of auto injury neck pain is whiplash
. During the a rear-end car accident, your body is pushed backwards into the seat, while your head remains forward, resulting in a shearing force. This force can stretches, strain, or tear the tendons and ligaments in the neck, leading to inflammation and pain. Medication may cover up this symptom, but they are not a long-term solution. Chiropractic adjustments treat the underlying spinal alignment issue, relieving pressure on the nerves and realigning the spinal joints. Exercise therapy can also help to restore full range of motion.
Spinal Adjustments for Neck Pain
The unnatural movements that occur during a car accident can shift and misalign the spinal joints, a condition known as subluxation. Chiropractic care addresses neck pain directly by addressing misalignment in the cervical spine, or the part of the spine located in the neck. This can alleviate not only neck pain, but also headaches, migraines, dizziness, and other signs of neck injury. Spinal adjustments are a gentle, safe, and effective way to restore proper neck alignment. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown by researchers to be an effective treatment for many patients suffering from neck pain.
