Auto accidents are among the most common reasons people seek chiropractic care in Portland. The level of damage to your vehicle is not always a good indication of your injuries, as even minor crashes can cause profound tissue damage. Some motor vehicle accident injuries develop after several days or weeks, so you should report to your chiropractic physician as soon as possible for a thorough evaluation and proper treatment. The most common cause of auto accident-related pain and discomfort is Whiplash. Whiplash injuries cause damage to your neck’s soft tissues, including your neck muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia. Whiplash injuries are most commonly caused by rear-end automobile collisions. The “whipping” motion of your neck—the rapid thrusting of your neck backward, then forward—stretches your neck muscles and ligaments, resulting in micro-tears in your tissues that cause pain and swelling.
Another common auto injury is joint dysfunction. In simplest terms, a joint dysfunction (or Vertebral Subluxation) occurs when one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) are moved out of position and create pressure on, or irritate spinal nerves. This will not heal naturally but you may not notice the problem for years because it isn’t painful unless the misaligned vertebra presses on the nerve. However, pain is not the only symptom. The best way to prevent any further injuries such as herniated discs or increased pain is to stay informed about the possible conditions and contact Eve Chiropractic Clinic immediately after your accident. We have an outstanding team of knowledgeable, trained, experienced and caring chiropractor, acupuncturists and massage therapists ready to help – and we are recognized as the best in auto injury chiropractors in Portland.
