Automobile accidents are one of the most common causes of neck and back injury resulting from spinal misalignment. When a car impacts another vehicle, the forward momentum of your body is stopped by a seat belt, air bag, car door, or dashboard, creating enormous force and pressure to the neck and back. Auto injuries to the neck and back can often create serious pain and discomfort, challenging simple movements and enjoyment in life.
The jarring experience of a car accident typically causes strain to the ligaments, muscles, and facet joints, which bear the brunt of impact. Treatment begins with a chiropractic evaluation and recommendations for ongoing therapy based on your diagnosis. There are often multiple neck and back injuries sustained in a car accident, requiring a comprehensive treatment approach including chiropractic, massage, acupuncture and naturopathic supplements.
