Auto Injury and Neck Pain in Stamford, CT
Neck discomfort is the most prevalent symptom disclosed after an auto collision, and it's not hard to understand why. Dr. Banc in Stamford, CT has been assisting patients with neck pain resulting from auto injuries since 1992.
During a crash, your body moves with the seat while your head lags behind due to inertia. It is this difference in motion that results in injury.
Your spinal column is susceptible to sprain and stress from shear forces that come from the head and body going in different directions. This shearing movement can stretch or tear the ligaments and discs of your spinal column, leading to pain, inflammation and scar tissue. Seeking early chiropractic care, is key for preventing chronic pain, particularly because of the high risk of persistent symptoms in patients with whiplash.
Researchers have established that up to twenty percent of people can have neck pain signs or symptoms even 10 years after the crash.
If you've been hurt in a wreck, chiropractic care might be able to help. Research shows that chiropractic can help restore neck range of motion and prevent scar tissue from forming after an injury. And other research shows that early intervention can also help prevent the development of chronic pain.
