If you or someone you know has ever been involved in a car accident, you likely know the types of injuries you can sustain from such an accident. Some of the most common symptoms resulting from a car crash include pain and discomfort felt in the neck, as well as the upper and lower back areas of the body. If you’ve recently been in a car accident, we implore you to consider visiting Progressive Health & Rehab, your trusted Gahanna chiropractor.
Even if you don’t feel any immediate pain after the car accident, you may still have suffered some injuries that may manifest themselves later. Whether you feel pain or not, it would be a good decision to see a chiropractor as soon as you can in the aftermath of a car accident.
How can we help you?
Since some symptoms from whiplash can take weeks or even months before they manifest and start to become noticeable, you’ll want to mention the details of your car accident to us so that we can have a clear understanding of any not so obvious injuries that you may have sustained. Very often, a car crash will either create or exacerbate existing vertebral subluxations, which are misalignments in the spinal column.
These misalignments can lead to inflammation and stiffness in the surrounding soft tissues, including your ligaments, muscles, and tendons. Using manual manipulation, we will work to gently realign your spinal column by guiding it into the proper posture. Once your spine is correctly aligned, inflammation and soreness should begin to ease up, which will in turn reduce or eliminate any pain or immobility you may have been experiencing.
