Everyone has experienced the pain and frustration of a car accident. Whether it is a fender bender or something more serious, the effects of a car accident can impact both your finances and your health.
The most common injury reported after a car accident is whiplash.
Whiplash occurs when the body is suddenly jolted when one car hits another. The body quickly tenses up as a defence against injury, but the result can often be just as painful
Whiplash can occur at speeds of 15 miles per hour or less. The more sudden the motion, the more bones, discs, muscles and tendons in ones neck and upper back will be damaged.
The traditional view of whiplash is of someone wearing a neck collar, but the pain and injury resulting from whiplash can go much deeper reaching into the back and causing severe headaches.
The team at the Nottinghill Family Wellness Centre can help identify the root causes of your pain and provide effective solutions to help get your life back to normal.
Identifying The Problem
Many people often experience pain long after their accident. A sudden bump or jar to the body or moving in a certain way can trigger the symptoms of whiplash over and over again.
Dr Steve Knighton and his staff are experts in identifying the cause of injury and developing a long-lasting treatment plan to prevent reoccurring injury and pain.
His team don’t simply say pain is the result of an accident, but help identify which part of the body was affected so you can receive effective treatment.
They have the tools such as spinal and nerve screenings which can identify where pain and discomfort is centred.
If left ignored, these types of injuries can become chronic and last for years and years. Many people who have not sought treatment feel they simply have to accept the pain as a new part of their life.
Through individualized treatment plans and one-on-one guidance, the pain of your accident can become a thing of the past. Based on your injuries, a care program will be put into place with options such as massage therapy, acupuncture and chiropractic treatments.
Patients quickly find they are able to live pain free and can prevent pain from returning with simple exercises to help strength and correct damage resulting from injury.
