Auto Injury Chiropractor
Impact from an auto collision, whether from the rear, front or side, generally occurs without warning and very quickly results in a person not being able to brace themselves and thereby limiting the injury. These traumas to the neck are referred as whiplash injuries and affect the head, neck back, shoulders and surrounding tissues.
The forces that can damage these tissues cause trauma to bones, muscles, and joints that can last a lifetime. Even a ‘minor fender bender’ can create pain that can last from a few days to weeks, months, and even years if left untreated.
Most Rated Chiropractor in Capitola
Many factors determine the extent and severity of the injury as each impact is unique and will have varying effects due to each person’s body type, sex (women generally have less muscle mass, therefore less strength to overcome the force of the impact), general health, muscle tone, and most importantly awareness of the collision occurring. If a person can prepare for the impact he/she can reduce the stress and damage to their body.
If you have been involved in an auto collision, getting your spine checked as soon as possible is important. This could help to reduce the swelling and pain and prevent the long-term progression of degeneration that follows trauma.
