Phoenix, Glendale and Mesa Car Injury Treatment
A Phoenix car injury is an incredibly traumatic event for the human body. Even a fender bender can cause a whiplash injury that damages the cervical spine, causing neck pain and migraines. Unfortunately, it can be weeks or months after an accident before victims begin to experience chronic pain. This means that many accident victims mistakenly believe they are healthy – until chronic pain strikes.
If you delayed seeking treatment following an accident, you may now be struggling with headaches, low back pain or neck pain. This pain can prevent you from living an active life and even getting a good night’s sleep. You may find temporary relief through medication, such as prescription painkillers. Unfortunately, as long as a mechanical misalignment persists in the spine, you will continue to experience pain. Our auto accident chiropractor can help.
Even if your injuries are months or years old, restoring proper alignment to the spine can still make a huge difference for your overall health. In fact, it’s absolutely essential that alignment be restored. As long as the spine remains misaligned, your body will be at risk for future injuries, pain and illness.
Accident victims experience pain when a misaligned disc compresses nearby nerves. This pressure on the nerves can cause a numbing, radiating or throbbing pain sensation. Chiropractic adjustments work by restoring alignment to the spine, which relieves pressure on the nerves. Adjustments are a safe and effective pain management technique for headaches, low back pain, sciatica and neck pain.
