One of the People You Need to See after an Auto Accident Is Your Chiropractor
Chiropractic care can save you months of pain after an auto accident injury. Dr. Stark at Back and Neck Care Center of North County in Florissant, MO has the answers to your frequently asked questions about auto accident injury.
Why do I need to see my chiropractor after an auto accident injury?
You may not even realize you have an auto accident injury until weeks or even months after the event, when chronic pain starts to take over your life. You may not even remember the fender bender that caused the misalignment in your spine that set off a series of events that cause your chronic pain, stiffness, and immobility. But your chiropractor can diagnose the underlying cause of your symptoms and give you effective, non-drug, non-surgical treatment.
Why is there usually a delay in symptoms from an auto accident injury?
The answer to the mystery of delayed effects of auto accident injury is inflammation. Even a 2 mile per hour crash can injure the muscles in your neck. Tiny tears in the muscle have to be removed for your neck muscles to heal. The process of inflammation that removes injured tissue can take weeks or even a few months.
As inflamed neck muscles swell, they tug directly on the bones of your cervical spine, pulling them out of alignment. Then your neck bones can pinch a nerve or cause you to experience an array of symptoms ranging from headaches that seem to wrap around your head to jaw issues to blurry vision to arm pain, all due to the swelling of muscles in your neck. These symptoms can persist after the muscles in your neck have healed if your spine has been affected.
