Advanced Chiropractic Care for Neck and Back Pain, & Whiplash
After a car accident, the first thing you should be concerned with is healing properly. While many car accident victims can escape without any major life-threatening injuries, most are left to struggle with other significant injuries that include chronic back and neck pain, migraines and whiplash. Anything from a minor fender bender in the grocery store parking lot to a 5 car pile up on the highway can leave you with painful and debilitating injuries. Even if you don’t feel like you have been hurt immediately following an auto accident, it is always a good idea to seek medical attention in case your injuries present themselves later on.
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained during a car accident and the pain associated with this type of injury often leaves patients seeking chiropractic treatment. This is because the impact of the car crash forcibly “whips” your neck back and forth and side to side, pushing it past its normal range of motion. This painful whipping motion puts a great deal of strain on the muscles and tissues in your neck and back.
Common signs of whiplash include stiffness and pain in the back and neck. Sometimes whiplash can present immediately following a car accident. In other cases, it can take a few days or weeks following the impact of a car accident before you start to experience the intense pain associated with whiplash. That is why it is best to schedule an appointment with Dr. Gallo as soon as possible after being involved in a car crash to seek treatment and begin the healing process.
Other common auto accident injuries that can be effectively treated with the help of an experienced chiropractor include:
- Neck and Back Pain
- Bulging or Herniated Discs
- Pain Associated with Head Injuries
