What to do after a Car Accident

Auto Accident VictimIf you’re suffering from an auto accident injury, you might be surprised to learn that chiropractic care can provide a drug-free way to relieve your pain. For instance, if you have back pain or neck pain after being involved in a car accident, this could mean you could have a spinal or whiplash injury. If you do not receive proper care, these types of injuries can have a serious, negative impact on your health. They can lead to months, or possibly even years, of chronic pain.

What can happen as the result of an auto accident injury?

The musculoskeletal system is knocked out of proper alignment because of the force of the accident, which can result in back and neck pain. A whiplash injury can happen from the force of a rear-impact accident that causes a shearing force  of the cervical spin backward and forward. This will knock the spine out of its alignment and strain the neck muscles, which causes pain, soreness, and stiffness. If not treated right away, this misalignment can cause future spinal degeneration.

The next thing to do is get checked by a one of our Castro Valley Chiropractors to make sure that you are not suffering from Whiplash.  We are here to serve you!
