Burton Chiropractic Helps Relieve Neck Issues After Car Crashes

You’re driving along and then BAM you’ve been in a auto injury. Even if the impact didn't seem that bad when it happened, you might find yourself with issues and a stiff neck over the next few days or weeks.

Why Does This Happen? What Can You Do?

A auto injury happens very quickly, and the forces on your body can be quite dramatic, causing your neck muscles and ligaments to stretch or tear. Whiplash is the most common type of injury sustained in a car accident, and it can be very agonizing. In fact, whiplash can cause neck issues that lasts for months or even years.

There are a few factors that can increase your risk of injury. First, rear-end collisions tend to cause more neck injuries than frontal collisions. Second, there is some evidence that women are more likely to get hurt in a car wreck than men. Finally, if your car has poor headrests, they may not have adequately protected your head and neck from the force of the impact.

Luckily, there are a few things you can do to reduce your neck pain after a auto injury. Heat or ice treatment may also help to soothe your sore muscles. Gentle stretching exercises can help keep your muscles from getting too stiff. And, of course, chiropractic care to help restore the healthy functioning of your neck and spine.

If you are suffering with pain because of a auto collision, even a small one, you may have neck pain as a result of whiplash. Don't wait to get relief. Studies shows that chiropractic is best for these kinds of injuries, so call Dr. Elganainy in Burton right away if you've been in a car accident.
