Auto Accident Injury Center
At Westcoast Spine Center, we specialize in treating auto accident injuries with an understanding that the onset of symptoms can be delayed for weeks or even months after the accident.
Whiplash is a common injury for people involved in car collisions. When a car is struck from behind or collides with another object, it causes the neck to snap back and forth violently. This causes the muscles and ligaments to overextend, leading to strains and/or tears.
This is referred to as soft tissue damage, and can cause stiffness and soreness. Whiplash can also cause structural damage such as misaligned vertebrae, herniated, bulging or ruptured discs, or nerve damage due to the overextension from the violent movement. Gonstead Chiropractic Care and Treatments can help with both types of injuries.
Adjustments and alignments can be performed specifically for those who have been in car accidents and suffered from whiplash. When pressure on the discs and nerves is released, the spine is returned to its proper alignment. Additionally, Chiropractic Massage Therapies can be used to help relieve the pain and discomfort from soft tissue injuries.
If you or someone you know has been in a car accident, schedule an appointment with us for an evaluation before relying on pain medications and/or surgery.
