A Chiropractor Shares The Most Common Injuries Associated With Rear-End Car Accidents, High Point, North Carolina

Did you know there are nearly 1.7 million rear-end collisions in the U.S. each year? These common auto accidents can cause a slew of injuries for drivers and are the main reason why patients visit South Main Chiropractic Clinic in High Point, NC. Their skilled chiropractor, Dr. Layne Bullard-Kelley, often provides relief for drivers who experience symptoms like whiplash, back pain, and headaches following a crash.

Neck and back pain are often the most common injuries drivers experience after an accident. The rapid forward and backward motion caused by a collision can cause acute neck pain, known as whiplash, as well as make it difficult to move these muscles for a short period.

Soft tissue pain is another common injury that occurs after a car accident. During a rear-end collision, your body often absorbs a great deal of trauma from the rapid change in direction. This causes soreness, swelling, bruising, and stiffness that can occur either in specific spots or all over the body. Examples of soft tissue damage include sprains from joint overextension, contusions (a bruise caused by a direct blow), and ligament strains such as whiplash.

Patients also often reportchiropractor an onset of migraines following an accident, as well as double vision and dizziness. Spinal manipulations provide an effective treatment for these symptoms, which chiropractors say are often associated with muscle tension in the neck.

Chiropractic adjustments help alleviate any stress being put on your system, as well as improve spinal function and provide pain relief.  During an evaluation, Dr. Bullard-Kelley will perform a spinal exam to determine whether any additional regions have been affected. Therapy techniques such as ultrasounds can be used to reduce inflammation, while stretching and hands-on manipulations will soothe aching muscles.
