Long after the car has been repaired or replaced, the body feels the effects of an auto accident. Even small accidents can have a big impact, causing back and body problems for the rest of the victim’s life.
Car accident back pain is nothing to mess around with.
When the body is jolted as it is during an accident, the skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems bear the brunt of the force. In severe cases, much of the body’s soft tissue systems can be inflamed. Even when a person appears to have escaped injury, they likely did not. Whiplash is the most common injury that results from a car accident Miami, followed closely by cervical sprain and strain. Sometimes the back pain after an accident can take several days to manifest. Slip and fall injuries, like the type sustained at work, can also behave in much the same way.
Treating Auto Accident Back Pain
Soft tissue injuries are frequently overlooked by traditional medicine. For one, they rarely show up on x-rays. Two, traditional medicine offers few affective treatments for soft tissue injury, the overlying cause of car accident back pain. There is no doubt that these injuries can be debilitating, especially when they go untreated for an extended period.
If you have been in a car accident, it is of paramount importance that you seek treatment quickly. The time to seek chiropractic treatment is within the first couple of days after an accident, even if you feel no pain. The reason is that post accident back pain is a symptom of the problem, not the problem itself. When left untreated, the body begins to adapt to the subluxations the accident caused, making healing harder and harder as time passes. Traditional medicine’s approach to treat the pain and hope for the best only compounds the problem. When the soft tissue injuries are untreated, scar tissue forms. Scar tissue is the body’s natural answer to such problems, but it does nothing to stop the pain. In fact, scar tissue makes chiropractic treatment harder, often increases pain and leaves the body vulnerable to re-injury.
Chiropractic treatment is the best and most cost effective treatment for back pain after an auto accident, especially when treatment begins shortly after the injury. Chiropractors are the health-care providers that know exactly what to do to reverse the damage. Their treatments will dramatically decrease back pain after an accident.
