Car Accident Neck Pain Treatment
A whiplash injury causes your muscles, ligaments, tendons, discs and nerves to be stretched and injured. This results in swelling and inflammation that causes neck stiffness and soreness.
Your neck joints often become misaligned and stuck causing sharp pains on movement.
Nerve irritation may also be caused by stretching of the nerves as they exit the spine. This will cause you to feel shooting pains down your arms or the sensation of your arms or hands falling asleep or tingling.
Treatment of neck pain from a car accident should be initiated right away. Delaying treatment only solidifies muscle spasm and scar formation in the muscles and around the joints, which can cause permanent pain and stiffness. Goals of treatment are to reduce spasm and inflammation (which relieves neck pain), increase motion, restore normal inter-joint mechanics and strengthen the spine.
Chiropractors specifically trained in car accident injuries are your best bet to relieve your pain quickly and return to a normal, healthy life.
