Chiropractic Care for Vehicle Injuries
Collisions may disturb the normal position of the spine and vertebrae, resulting in damage to the spine and nerves. Surrounding muscles, ligaments and discs are also impacted, sometimes resulting in stiffness, headaches, irritability and insomnia.
It's all part of the kinetic chain. Nerves send messages to the brain, telling the body to function properly and to protect itself. An impact injury can interrupt the neural pathways to and from the brain, preventing the body from protecting and from healing itself.
Untreated, these injuries can result in chronic pain, weakness in the extremities and eventually, physical disability. Pharmaceuticals help to reduce inflammation and manage the pain, but not to treat the injury. Restoration of spinal alignment is crucial to regaining normal positioning and function of the affected areas and is covered by most health insurance plans.
