That is why it is crucial for auto accident victims to see a San Diego chiropractor for auto accident chiropractic care as soon as possible following the incident.
Chiropractic Care: An Effective Whiplash Treatment
Whiplash is an extremely common auto accident injury caused by wearing a seat belt during a car crash. While seat belts save lives, the action of being thrust violently forward and then backward has a traumatic effect on the spine. The vertebrae of the neck in particular are ground together laterally. This can lead to pinched nerves and inflammation that in turn can cause chronic pain. This debilitating condition greatly reduces quality of life due to chronic pain and discomfort.
The soft tissues in this area are also damaged in a whiplash injury. This includes the muscles,tendons, ligaments and blood vessels. The cervical spine can no longer be property supported, leading to back and neck pain. Additional symptoms can include headaches, migraines, vision issues, sleep problems, and tingling and numbness in the extremities.
San Diego Chiropractic Care Treats Auto Accident Injury at the Root

Fortunately, chiropractic techniques and spinal adjustments allow for safe,gentle, non-invasive correction of these misalignments and related issues.Therapeutic stretches, physical therapy, massage therapy and at-home and exercises also help to rebuild and restore proper spinal functioning and range of motion.
Again, efficiency is key to successful treatment and minimizing the pain associated with it.
