This post we will briefly talk about the types of injuries that occur and why chiropractic care at Spinal Rehab of North County is the best treatment possible for those injuries.
In the spine there are only 4 types of tissue that could be injured in an auto accident.
- Ligament and tendon
When someone has been in a car accident many times they think that they have just strained the muscle and that is the cause of their pain. However, this isn’t accurate. The most common tissue injured in a car accident is the ligament and tendon.
This is important to understand! The ligaments primary job is to stabilize the joint. Whether it is the knee, elbow, ankle, or spine. When the ligament gets injured it will cause improper motion of that joint.
When a joint has bad motion, it will cause the joint surfaces to wear out quickly which will cause joint pain and arthritis.
Chiropractic treatment specifically helps to restore normal joint motion and alignment following an injury. That is why it is so important to be seen quickly after any type of auto accident and many times to be treated.
When it comes to injuries to the disc or to the muscle following a car accident, chiropractic is superior then any other treatment available.
