Ligament Injury from Auto Accidents
We treat a great number of auto injury patients in our Parma, OH office, and neck pain is the most frequent problem we've encountered in our clinic. It's not unusual when you consider that your neck is vulnerable to very high levels of strain during the course of a collision.
Indeed, a 2006 study discovered that the stresses on your neck during a rear-end impact actually stretch and weaken the ligaments of your cervical spine!
The secret to effective treatment after an auto injury is to:
- Get early care. It's vital to restore spinal motion before scar tissue begins to develop.
- Keep the injured area mobile. Limiting movement also results in scar tissue development.
- Encourage recovery. Chiropractic adjustments improve blood flow to the injured area, improving the rehabilitation process.
