Suffering from neck pain after a car accident?


 

If you have ever been in a car accident than you know that the road to recovery can be long and uncertain. You realize in retrospect how your life has changed dramatically in those split seconds. The moments before the accident you were fine and suddenly your life takes a turn for the worse. The most basic things you take for granted become painful and problematic. Painful headaches, dizziness, neck pain, numbness and muscle soreness become a reality. Now basic tasks such as comprehension, reading and sleeping become painful and require energy.

 If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you are suffering from whiplash. Whiplash is caused by sudden jerking motion of your cervical spine in any direction. Whiplash can damage your neck ligaments and if not treated properly scar tissue can develop instead leading to chronic pain down the road. Medical studies have shown that about 43% of patients develop long term chronic pain due to whiplash and no conventional treatment has been effective to treat this pain.

If you do not revive immediate treatment for whiplash, these injuries will only get worse. More than half the patients will suffer from long term pain leading to a deterioration in their quality of life. Traditional methods such as pain killers and “wait-and-see” approach do not work with whiplash. Several studies have shown that chiropractic care has been effective for whiplash injuries compared to conventional treatments or drugs. So why wait? If you want to get your quality of life back, see a chiropractor today!
