The insurance statistics say that the average person gets in a car accident at least once every five years.
These accidents cause the body to move one way and then abruptly stop and/or move in a different direction. Areas usually affected are the neck, mid back, low back and jaw. Injuries to the head, shoulders, wrists and knees may occur as well.
These impacts may result in stretching or tearing of muscles and ligaments. Now that the muscles and ligaments have been damaged, the vertebrae (bones) may be shifted out of their normal position. This may result in the nerves becoming pinched or irritated and this can lead to pain over the affected area. The pain may even radiate to other areas of the body.
If these misalignments are not corrected, long term damage can occur, such as arthritis and spinal degeneration. Chiropractic has been shown to be the best form of care for people suffering from whiplash.
I was referred to the fine people at McCarron Lake because of an automobile accident. I’ve had a lot of pain. If it can be said that good can come from bad, that would describe all the wonderful people here at McCarron Lake Chiropractic.Steve B.
