Whiplash Injury Therapy and Neck Pain
Neck soreness is the most prevalent symptom documented after a car crash, and it's not tough to see why. Dr. Palmer in Cheektowaga, NY has been assisting men and women with neck pain resulting from auto accidents since 1996.
During a crash, your torso moves with the seat while your head stays behind due to inertia. It is this difference in movement that contributes to injury.
Your spinal column is prone to sprain and strain from shear forces that come from the head and body shifting in different directions. This shearing action can stretch or tear the ligaments and discs of your spinal column, producing pain, inflammation and scar tissue. Getting early chiropractic care, is key for avoiding chronic pain, especially because of the elevated risk of persistent symptoms in individuals with whiplash injury.
Research has established that up to 20% of individuals may have neck pain difficulties even ten years after the collision.
If you have been injured in a collision, chiropractic adjustments might be able to help. Studies show that chiropractic can help restore neck range of motion and reduce the risk of scar tissue from forming after an injury. And other studies show that early treatment can also help prevent the development of long-term pain.
