Car Accident Chiropractic
Have you been in a car accident? Are you suffering from headaches, neck pain, or back pain? We can help.
Car accidents are becoming a lot more common than ever before, thanks in large part to the ever-growing use of smartphones, and distracted driving. Milpitas and the Santa Clara County are no exceptions, with thousands of reported auto accident cases last year alone.
While a small fraction of accidents cause severe bodily injury requiring immediate medical emergency treatment, the majority of accidents are classified as “minor,” causing car accident victims whiplash, neck pain, back pain, headaches, and general discomfort which could last days, weeks, or in some cases, even months after the accident.
Pain is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Listen.
In many cases, those involved in car accidents dismiss the above-mentioned health issues as nothing more than a small inconvenience, thinking the pain will eventually diminish and go away on its own. Unfortunately though, such pain and discomfort signify some degree of spinal damage, an injury that does not go away with time. On the contrary, spinal misalignments get worse with time, leading to much more serious health conditions down the road.
Our expert chiropractors understand that even a bit of pain can mean big damage to the spine, which is the most important reason to see a chiropractor right after a car accident. By conducting a thorough exam and utilizing imaging technology to examine the spine, our team can pinpoint even the smallest misalignments, and devise an aggressive care plan to rehabilitate the spine back to its normal condition.
The significance of spinal misalignments, and what it means to your overall health.
Spinal misalignments occur at the moment of impact. While some may not feel pain, or suffer only a little pain, it doesn’t change the fact that the spine is out of alignment. Misalignments must be addressed quickly, as continuous everyday stresses such as bad sleeping habits, poor posture at work, or even a sudden move can exacerbate the condition.
Similar to a kink in a garden hose which slows down the flow of water, spinal misalignments diminish nerve energy from flowing optimally from the brain, to the spine, and down to the critical organs. Ignoring a spinal misalignment translates into ignoring this critical flow of nerve energy, and allowing the heart, lungs, digestive system, immune system, and other systems to function in a less than optimal manner. In time, this reduction in nerve flow to critical organs will manifest as other serious types of symptoms and ailments throughout the body, including digestive issues, allergies, heart palpitations, or even hypertension.
