Car crashes are an unexpected shock, stress and can be very painful on the body. One of the most common injuries sustained in a car crash is whiplash which leads to restriction of movement and pain in the neck, shoulders and sometimes head over time. Depending on the impact, lower back and other areas can be affected. Even a car accident at slow speed of 10MPH can cause significant strain on muscles and joints of the body affecting day to day living.
What do you feel?
Symptoms range from general achiness, headaches, and stiffness to loss of co-ordination and more significant injuries which require hospitalisation.
What to do?
Such a trauma can causes disturbance to how your body functions on a day to day basis, limiting its ability to self heal and regulate. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your head, neck, shoulder, arm, hip, back, leg following a car accident, it is worth having a consult with us to establish its cause. If your pain is beyond our scope of practice, you will be referred and advised accordingly for the appropriate therapy/investigations.
If it is within our scope, we can work with you to help restore your body to its natural mechanics and relieve the tightness enabling the body to self-heal and regulate; as well as discuss the best way to prevent re-occurrence.
