What’s one part of your body that is most likely injured during a car accident? The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the Highway Loss Data Institute claims the answer is your neck. Over the last few decades, procedures have been made to reduce the severity and amount of these kind of injuries. Unfortunately, they have not completely prevented them. The good news is that your local St. Louis chiropractor is here for you!
When an individual suffers from whiplash or a similar injury, it typically involves the neck which could include ligaments, nerves, cervical muscles, discs, intervertebral joints, and soft tissue. If the impact has been severe and the neck has been impacted there is a chance that an individual could suffer from chronic pain in the neck, shoulders, head and back. There could be other health issues as well such as moodiness, cervical headaches, chronic fatigue, vertigo, and cognitive impairments.
Your St. Louis Chiropractor can meet with you if you are experiencing any of these symptomps or if you have been in a car accident. At North County Pain Relief Center, we can provide an exam to verify that there aren’t any injuries or health issues. Following the exam, we can provide a full plan of recovery that can start by multiple chiropractic sessions over a period of weeks or months. Your chiropractor will encourage you to go through spinal manipulative therapy, chiropractic treatments, physical therapy, and strength training.
