After a car accident comes the stress of fixing your car, insurance companies, police reports, lawyers, etc… and taking the time to consider your health can feel like a low priority.
But paying attention to how your body reacts to an accident, even a small fender-bender, can make a huge difference in the long run.
Sometimes car accident injuries can be hidden and are seldom detected for months, sometimes years.
Chiropractic Care and Neck Pain
As a result, many whiplash victims wait too long to see if they have injuries and find they are no longer covered.
Do not make this common mistake – schedule an immediate consultation with one of our experienced Tucker car accident injury Chiropractors.
If you wait too long or settle too soon, you lose the right to receive necessary care down the road.
Why You Should Get Checked Out After a Car Accident
Even if your neck just feels slightly stiff or sore, you should get evaluated immediately.
Whiplash and stiff neck are not always felt immediately following an accident, and symptoms can arise as late as two to three months after the injury.
Many people have reported neck and lower back pain, muscle stiffness and headaches many months down the road, so it is important to make sure that you’re covered if these injuries emerge.
How Tucker Chiropractic Helps Stiff Neck and Whiplash
After a car accident, spinal joints that are misaligned or not functioning properly can aggravate adjacent nerves.
Chiropractic adjustments bring motion to these stuck joints, reducing nervous system disruption, muscle spasm, soreness, stiffness, and pain.
At AICA Tucker we offer a unique way of adjusting the cranium, spine, and extremities with a “crackless” technique known as KST. This means we use an Arthrostim adjusting device to gently tap bones into place.
With this instrument, we are able to deliver carefully directed energy 12 times per second in the precise direction and angle needed to make a long-lasting correction. It is very gentle and crackless!
These adjustments and spinal corrections help restore proper motion and position, helping to heal your stiff neck and whiplash.
