For as long as I have been in practice at Soft Touch Chiropractic in Porter Ranch, CA, I noticed that many of my patients who are involved in car accidents choose to ignore their bodies' cries for help and bypass getting chiropractic treatment solely based on level of discomfort, fractures or the lack of severity of their injuries.
Whiplash in a car accident, for example, could lead to major spasms in the neck, midback or low back which causes the vertebrae to become fixated or locked. The fixation leads to toxic build up in the joints which happens in our body naturally. The build up of toxicity leads to joint degeneration. Most of the joints in our bodies detox through movement. When you are in any kind of car accident, whether major or minor, it could lead to spasms around the joints which creates premature degeneration. Unfortunately, you wont notice the damage until years later. Watch the videos below to learn about degenerative joint disease and motions.
If you have been in a car accident, call your chiropractor immediately for a check up
