The Damage Is Done
Most auto accidents involve either sudden acceleration, an abrupt stop, or both. When your body is subjected to sudden movements such as these, muscles and spinal joints will be stretched too far and upon stopping, the spinal joints will be “mashed” together. This injures both the joints and muscles, causing inflammation and eventually scar tissue development.
These “Soft Tissue Injuries” can present as:
- Joint pain
- Muscle spasms
The Healing Process
When left untreated, soft tissue injuries result in the formation of scar tissue. This can be very damaging to your long term health, presenting as back pain, neck pain and headaches. We encourage you to visit a chiropractor as soon as possible after an accident to help your body heal correctly. In most cases, soft tissue injuries take six to eight weeks to heal completely. By beginning your treatment right after your injury, you help ensure that it will heal as quickly as possible with a minimum of scar tissue development.
