Chiropractic Care After a Car Accident

Have you or someone you know been involved in a motor vehicle collision? One of the most common injuries from a car crash is the damaging effect of whiplash. Whiplash occurs when a sudden, jarring movement of the head is sustained backward, forward or even to the side. Whiplash destabilizes the spine and causes severe pain as well as these other indicators:

  • Neck Pain
  • Headaches
  • Back Pain
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Numbness and/or tingling in the arms or legs
  • Jaw Pain

Your neck and back hurt, you can't work, your life is in chaos . . . and there's an insurance adjuster on the phone badgering you! If you've been involved in an auto accident, it is important to seek care from a qualified doctor as soon as possible following the incident.

The most common injuries resulting from a motor vehicle accident include neck pain, low back pain and generalized back pain due to sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments. Pain is often delayed and not all of your injuries will be evident to you immediately. 3 Rivers Chiropractic can help you feel neck pain relief & back pain relief in Missoula today.

Have you received pain medications from your medical doctor? Or have you tried to cover the pain with pills? Maybe you are just trying to live with the pain. It is common for people to think "I can control my pain with pills, so it must not be too bad". While pain medications can mask or numb the pain, they do nothing to help the underlying issues, and the damage can continue to get worse with time. But there is a simple way to get on the road to recovery!
