Importance of Chiropractic Treatment for Automobile Neck Injuries

Robert Smith and Kevin Bailey of Chiropractic Whole Health in Easton are experienced in the treatment of automobile injuries and are available to meet with you regarding your concerns.
Common automobile injuries:
Leg or knee injuries
Neck injuries such as whiplash are the most common problems for individuals who have been in car accidents, even small fender benders. Whiplash occurs when a sudden, jarring impact causes the head to move or “whip” forward, backward, or to the side. This sudden movement destabilizes the spine and causes severe pain. Among others, some symptoms of whiplash may include blurred vision, neck and shoulder pain, dizziness, headaches, and stiffness or reduced range of motion in the neck.
Seek chiropractic care
It is crucial to seek chiropractic attention following an accident. Cuts and bruises fade over time but the underlying pain may remain. Fortunately, chiropractors are trained to find underlying causes of pain. Treatment options may include chiropractic adjustments, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, massage, and exercises.
Get on the road to recovery
The sooner you receive help, the faster your injuries can begin to heal and the better you will feel. The body is not meant to be thrown forward as it is in an auto accident. Small tears or stretched ligaments can occur causing pain or discomfort. Dr. Smith and Dr. Bailey are trained to restore help ease your pain, restore your body, and keep it aligned and in optimal health.
