NECK AND SHOULDER INJURIES
Many people in Plantation and Sunrise that have been injured in an accident seek fast, safe and natural pain relief by visiting a chiropractor. Neck injuries usually occur on impact when your neck is whipped back and forth or to the side depending on the impact. The brain has the consistency of Jello, and the nerves, muscles and ligaments of the cervical spine are far more delicate and easily damaged than most people realize. Impact can cause severe misalignment of the bones in the cervical spine and shoulder causing nerve irritation, muscle and joint pain, insomnia, vertigo, mood changes, carpal tunnel syndrome and much more.
Your Plantation Chiropractor does an immediate complete set of x-rays and thorough orthopedic and neurological evaluation and documentation of your injuries; correctly diagnosing the cause of your pain and determining the most effective and appropriate treatment for your case. Pain experienced in the shoulder often originates from the cervical spine caused by herniated discs and impinged nerves. These damaged irritated nerves combined with often injured muscles and ligaments need to be properly realigned or adjusted by the chiropractor in order to heal properly.
Safe gentle Chiropractic treatment combined with Cold laser therapy, ultra sound, electrotherapy, and exercises help to reduce inflammation and pain and effect long term healing. Many studies have found chiropractic care to be the most effective treatment for whiplash injuries.
May people are surprised to find out that the medical treatment required for injuries following a car accident are covered by their personal injury protection included in their car insurance. Many people are unable to work due to pain are happy to find out that this insurance will cover days and even weeks if they are not able to work, so that they can rest without financial stress. Others are delighted to find out that even though they don’t have insurance they are still covered by relatives that live with them, the driver of the vehicle they were traveling in, or the person at fault in the accident.
