One of the most common injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident is the damaging effect of whiplash. Whiplash occurs when a sudden, jarring movement of the head is sustained backward, forward, or even to the side. Whiplash destabilizes the spine and causes severe pain, as well as blurred vision, neck pain, headaches, and reduced range of motion in the neck. It is critical that chiropractic care is sought immediately after sustaining an injury, because whiplash can take days, weeks, or even months for these major symptoms to arise. Since chiropractors such as Dr. Martine Charles, specialize in the care of bones, muscles, nerves, and connective tissue, it is important to schedule a consultation to keep these body parts in optimal health.
Chiropractic treatment after an auto accident is a step in the right direction in restoring the body. Depending on the severity of the case, Dr. Martine Charles may make necessary adjustments to align your spine and may suggest massage or other therapeutic techniques. The earlier the issue is detected, the earlier it can be treated, so don’t wait and give us a call today.
