Tucson Chiropractor Treats Car Accident Injury and Whiplash with Chiropractic Care
Here at Carrion Chiropractic Clinic, we are honored to be your local Tucson car accident injury resource. Painful conditions stemming from a car accident injury is so common today that many people who are involved in an accident are not even aware of this until hours or even days following the impact. Injuries like whiplash, a soft tissue injury that can involve headaches, neck pain, and back pain, occur at the moment of impact when a car accident injury first happens. It is not uncommon for patients to be in shock immediately after an accident, and to think that they are not feeling any differently than they normally do. However, once the initial shock of the car wreck wears off, people may begin to notice neck pain, headaches, back pain, or other similar soft tissue injuries that combine to be called whiplash.
Although whiplash is not always a result of an auto accident, it is one of the injuries which happens most often in this situation no matter how severe the crash impact. In some cases, patients who were hit from behind at a very low rate of speed may have injuries and pain just as severe or even worse than those that were hit at a high rate of speed. The very fast forward jerk of the neck and back that can occur upon impact can cause chronic back pain, neck pain and headaches.
Often, the vertebrae of the neck and spine may be moved out of alignment, and sometimes nerves may become pinched or compressed. These conditions will cause upper, middle, and/or lower back pain, even traveling pain that reaches down to the extremities like the hands and feet. Our Tucson chiropractor can execute a wellness plan to find the base of the injuries sustained and administer the proper attention towards pain management.
