Every trauma has the potential to cause vertebral misalignments that can pinch, stress or compress your nerves, and affect the health of your muscles, internal organs, discs, bones and brain. These misalignments can cause pain, organ or nervous system malfunction. Chiropractors specialize in correcting these misalignments using safe, gentle, spinal adjustments and physiotherapy.
Accident victims often continue to suffer from pain for months, years or decades, even after the best medical care. Post-accident conditions may include pain or spasms in the back, neck, shoulders, arms, wrists, hands and legs. Some accidents can result in 'post-traumatic stress disorder' which may include insomnia, mental dullness, nervousness, anxiety, memory problems, depression, headache, vision problems and dizziness. All have been reported after traumatic events and have been completely corrected following chiropractic care.1
