Auto Accident Injuries
Sadly, car accidents are becoming increasingly more and more common these days. And, more often than not, they can cause serious harm to the body. For example, whiplash is one of the most common problems received from being involved in a car crash. However, there are a variety of injuries that can occur as a result of an auto accident.
When the head is suddenly jerked back and forth beyond its usual limits, the muscles and ligaments supporting the spine and head can be overstretched or torn. The symptoms may not appear for weeks or even months after the accident.
The chiropractic approach involves the use of specific chiropractic adjustments to help return spinal function. After a thorough case history and examination, the doctor will recommend a series of visits to help restore proper motion and position of spinal bones. If caught early enough, we can reduce inflammation, and often minimize scar tissue. Call 703-723-6800 or contact us today to schedule a consultation for your car accident injury.
