Even though it may seem that you have not been injured after an auto accident, it sometimes takes a few hours for symptoms to appear. Emergency rooms often release patients after crashes because they have no broken bones. Prescriptions for muscle spasms may be offered for some relief from lingering pain.
Chiropractic care for the often-unseen injuries that result from even a minor crash can effectively address your problems without medication, whether it is back or neck pain or soft tissue damage.
Pain, numbness or tingling in the arms and hands are the result of nerve damage to the neck. Lower back pain can also be an after effect of the trauma. You may experience other pain, such as headaches, even after a week or more.
Your body adapts to the environment in a variety of ways. Chiropractic patients benefit from reduction of painful symptoms and better spinal function.
