Whether your accident was an hour ago or a few months ago, whether you don’t feel any aches yet or the pain is so excruciating you can hardly move – our staff is ready to help. At Eve Chiropractic Clinic, we target the problem at its source and begin healing there; we don’t just simply mask the pain, because when you are healthy, we are happy.
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-ending 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.
Seeking the appropriate chiropractic care immediately after your auto injury may help prevent long-term health problems such as headaches, chronic neck pain, chronic back pain and difficulty performing work and leisure activities. Dr. Armans has earned advanced certifications in whiplash and mild brain traumatology with extensive studies in motor vehicle crash forensics and occupant crash kinematics. Auto accidents are among the most common reasons people seek chiropractic care in Southeast 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, developing after several days or weeks.
