If you've been involved in an auto accident, even a seemingly minor one, it can have long-lasting negative effects on your well being. Car accidents can lead to chronic mid and low back pain, neck pain, headaches and other issues for years to come if they are not addressed promptly and properly.
At Swain Family Chiropractic, we understand that there is a temptation to ignore the stiffness or aches you may experience after an auto accident. You may simply shrug this pain off and even begin to feel better after a few days. But the jarring of the neck and spine can have ramifications that are better addressed immediately.
Dr. Ronald Swain, of Swain Family Chiropractic, has spent years studying the neuromuscular system of the human body. His focus has been on how the nerves and muscles in the neck and spine affect the overall health of patients. When these systems are jarred by an impact of an auto accident, it can create a misalignment of these systems, causing pain and discomfort. In some cases, it can severely limit mobility.
One of the most common injuries that an auto accident chiropractor is confronted is with whiplash. Whiplash the name for the straining of the neck caused by the sudden movement of the head forward and backward. This is common when a car strikes another either from the front or behind. It also occurs when a vehicle comes to a sudden stop when striking a solid object.
Other common problems of auto injury accidents include back pain or lower back pain from a herniated disc and headaches. We urge you not to discount these injuries as temporary.
At Swain Family Chiropractic, we will examine and document your injuries. This is critical from an insurance and legal standpoint. We will also prescribe a treatment program that is designed first, to help relieve your discomfort, and second, to resolve your problem for the long-term.
The pain and discomfort you feel after an auto accident is a sign. It is a signal from your body that something is wrong. To cover it up with pain killers simply masks the underlying issues. At Swain Family Chiropractic, we know that by adjusting your spine and re-aligning your neck and back, we will be able to relieve pressure from your neck, back and head that is common after an auto accident. Proper alignment can also help boost the function of your immune system, allowing your body to better heal itself and function optimally.
