There are some important things you should know if you have been in a car accident in Minneapolis, Burnsville, Savage, Prior Lake or anywhere, for that matter…
50% of automobile accident victims sustain injuries to the low back, and of these, 15% develop serious nerve damage.
~Hirsch, M.D., Professor of Orthopedic Surgery, UMDNJ in Orthopedic Clinic of NA Oct. 1998.
Additional symptoms may include: Stiff or painful Neck, Loss of Neck Motion, Back Pain, Numbness/Tingling in Limbs, Dizziness/Loss of Balance, Muscle Spasm/Swelling, Ringing in Ears, Early Arthritis, Bursitis, Neuritis, Tendonitis, Nervous Anxiety, Double Vision, Night Blindness, Painful Joints, Nausea
Even the most minor automobile accident can have major effects on your body. When we are involved in motor vehicle accidents, thousands of pounds of force are exerted on the body, most notably the neck and spine.
Cervical acceleration/deceleration (CAD) injuries, more commonly referred to as Whiplash, occur when the head and neck are thrown or "snapped" back and forth very quickly. The result of this injury is damage to the ligaments, muscle, and discs of the neck and spine.Neck_Pain.jpg
CAD injuries also cause impingement, stretching and irritation of the local nerves and spinal cord. This can result in headaches, numbness, tingling in the face, arms or hands. Whiplash injuries can also result in neck pain, back pain, ear ringing, dizziness, hearing loss and blurred vision.
So often when we are injured in a car accident we do not seek care, this results in many accident victims never completely recovering from the injuries and are forced later in life to endure surgeries or resort to pain medications.
Chiropractic care can be the difference between true recovery vs. lingering pain and long-term disability.
At Northern Life Chiropractic & Physical Therapy we take these injuries very seriously. Through our treatment protocols we are able to restore nervous system function, heal sore and damaged muscles and ligaments, and aid in a complete recovery after your accident.
