Car Accident

WhiplashA vehicle collision can wreak havoc on your life – financially, emotionally and physically. Recovering from injuries related to a car accident can be a monumental task, for which you’ll need the best help and care available. At Meadows Chiropractic, we specialize in the treatment of car accident-related injuries, including whiplash.

Whiplash is a common injury associated with car accidents, since it is caused by sudden, jarring movements. This jarring movement then forces the head abruptly forward, backward or to the side, destabilizing the spine. Whiplash can cause ongoing pain and injury, including dizziness, shoulder and neck pain, stiffness, low back pain, diminished range of motion, headaches and even blurred vision. In short, car accidents that cause whiplash can cause sustained discomfort, pain and even disability for years to come.

Chiropractic Treatment for Victims of Car Accidents

Getting the car you need after experiencing a car accident can be complicated. That’s because many people do not immediately feel the long-term effects of whiplash or other injuries possibly sustained in the accident. In fact, some symptoms of whiplash may not manifest themselves until months after the incident.

If you’ve experienced a jarring car accident, it’s important to get chiropractic attention as soon as possible. The jolting effects of whiplash can lead to stretched ligaments or even ligament tears. As licensed chiropractors, we are experts in the study of ligaments, bones, muscles and connective tissue, and can help to identify and treat pain and loss of mobility related to whiplash or any other injuries sustained in a car accident.

When you’ve been in a car accident, you’ll want to get back to normal life as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, ongoing pain and injury makes this wish nearly impossible. But at Meadows Chiropractic, we can help you recover from the effects of whiplash or other car accident-related injuries, so you can get back to the activities – and life – you love.
