Car Accidents and the Effects on the Spine

Car Accidents and the effects on the spine in Flushing

Chiropractor Flushing NY Auto Accident

A car accident in Flushing can be a very painful and emotional thing. I know because I had one not so long ago and I still feel the effects of it. A small 5 mile per hour impact from behind can cause significant whiplash and cause spinal misalignments that if not corrected, can cause a lifetime of spinal problems.

Whiplash in Flushing

Whiplash is common in a car accident and is when your head whips forward and lashes back at a very high rate of speed. This can cause severe trauma to the muscles, which we refer to as severe spasm. Perhaps the worst complication of a car accident is when the bones of your spine become "knocked out of alignment", which we call a subluxation.

If left unchecked, these bones can stay misaligned and subluxated for many years. This can lead to spinal disc degeneration, arthritis, and many other spinal complications. If you are involved in a car accident, on the job injury, sports injury, or any high impact injury, please get your spine checked by a Chiropractor to restore spinal health.

After my car accident, I received Chiropractic Care on a regular basis. I am grateful to have done this because I am very active and love to work out and play sports. I also need to be able to serve patients and do what I really love...Chiropractic!
