Four seasons of occasional extreme driving weather and tight, blind turns on Rocky Mountain roads can add up to a greater risk of auto accidents. Many of those auto accidents can wind up causing truly debilitating neck pain that makes your daily activities much harder to accomplish. Metro Denver Accident & Injury Centers provides licensed chiropractic services that help to document and treat neck injuries. If you live in Westminster, Lakewood, Aurora, Centennial, or the surrounding area, choose Metro Denver Accident & Injury Centers for your neck pain treatment.
How Car Accidents Cause Neck Pain
When your head and neck suffer a sudden, forced, and generally unnatural movement in any direction, the rebound that occurs in the opposite direction is how the term “whiplash” came about. The muscles in your neck tighten and contract, which causes your muscles to fatigue and ache. The pain often occurs with popping or cracking sounds as you turn your head and neck during normal activities. More severe cases will include injuries to the discs, joints, ligaments, nerves, and muscles with car accidents being the most prolific cause of whiplash injuries.
How Chiropractic Care Helps Your Neck Pain
Your chiropractor can help with spinal adjustments and a variety of therapies that alleviate pain and facilitate quicker healing. Those treatments and therapies may include:
- Spinal adjustments, which help to properly align the spine and release the pressure that causes pain from herniated discs, sciatica, and other common spinal injuries.
- Physical therapy helps to strengthen afflicted areas while accelerating the healing process and more thoroughly documenting the extent of your injuries and related pain.
- Massage therapy helps to relieve the swelling and pain in muscles and joints while increasing circulation to injured areas.
Quality chiropractic care can increase the speed at which you heal from your car accident injuries and help to build a stronger case against the offending driver. We work with insurers and law firms while giving you the best care available.
