Personal Injury Chiroprator
Patients involved in motor vehicle accidents should never let the absence of immediate symptoms or pain keep them from having a complete spinal exam. Oftentimes, it may take several hours or days for the body to calm down before pain, stiffness, or soreness set in. Dr. Grabouski recommends being evaluated as soon as possible following an auto accident. Early detection of whiplash and other injuries to the spine is the key to overcoming any pain you may be experiencing, and accelerating the healing process in order to prevent lasting issues.
Whiplash is the most common condition we see and its effects are felt the quickest following an accident. Whiplash injuries occur when automobiles collide and the velocity of the impact forces the neck muscles to violently move forward, backward, or to the side, causing extreme movement of the head and spine, while spraining the surrounding ligaments.
Motor vehicle injuries are a major problem, due to the fact that they often cause severe damage to muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments of the spine and surrounding areas. If left untreated, these injuries can change the natural curvature of the spine, resulting in permanent functional loss.
