Car Accident Injury

How do car accident injuries occur?

Injuries sustained from car accidents affect the soft tissues that hold you in place. When your car is impacted by an object or another car, your head (which weighs 10-15 pounds) is thrown around. When this happens, the soft tissues: the muscles, ligaments and tendons, can be torn. This is what we call a soft tissue injury. Misalignments, which cause nerve pressure similar to a rock blocking a hose, are a common result of car accident injury. Dr. Fred Schofield has seen thousands of patients who have suffered from this type of injury.

Immediate Treatment for Car Accident Injury

Soft tissue car accident injuries are best when treated right away. Atlas Chiropractic and Dr. Fred Schofield understand a patient’s desire to find out what the problems are and their desire to be seen as soon as possible. For the best possible outcome, treatment should be started immediately following a car accident. When a rock blocks up a hose and no water can get out, the garden will die. When a bone is out of place it creates nerve interference which prevents the body from healing. The Chiropractor removes the rock from the hose, which allows the body to heal. The longer you wait to see a Chiropractor, the harder the problem can be to correct.
