Auto Accident Care in Vancouver

Dr. Kathy with spine modelAccording to the Driver Knowledge website, 3 million people in the United States are injured every year in car accidents. Even a minor fender bender can produce spinal misalignment and whiplash. It may take a day or two, however, or even several weeks for symptoms to appear. The longer you wait to be evaluated after a personal injury, the more hidden damage can accumulate. It can also take substantially longer to recover.

At Healing Chiropractic we’ve had almost two decades of helping people to recover from the devastating effects of car collisions. We also help our patients to improve rapidly through outside referrals to experts in massage and physical therapy.

The Damaging Effects of Vehicular Injury

This is the easiest way to describe the damage that can occur to your spine or extremities following an auto accident: think of it as a sprain/strain injury—as if you had sprained your ankle.

Ligaments, tendons and muscles are microscopically torn. These injuries are called micro-tears. This leads to inflammation, muscle spasm and pain. The pain can be in the form of headaches and incredible stiffness.

If these aftereffects aren’t attended to swiftly, the body has no choice but to turn the injured areas into scar tissue and permanently misaligned joints. The results are usually:

  • Accelerated degenerative changes to your spine
  • Decreased range of motion in the joints
  • Extreme muscular imbalance
  • Headaches
  • Intermittent pain and stiffness
  • Postural problems
