FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR TREATMENT
Spinal connective tissue injuries occur when there is a sudden forced movement of the head or neck in any direction which can cause a rebound in the opposite direction. Surrounding and supporting tissues of the neck and head will be affected. Consequently, the surrounding muscles begin to tighten, contract and fatigue quicker resulting in pain and stiffness. Car crashes are the most common cause of spinal connective tissue injury.
It is vital to get a proper evaluation to determine how to get you feeling better without the use of medication, which is designed to mask the pain, not treat the cause of the pain. At Exactacare Chiropractic & Injury Rehab, our goal is to help you recover from automobile injuries and focus on the correction of your ailments.
During the impact of a crash your neck is forcibly “whipped” back and forth and side to side past its normal range of motion. As a result, spinal connective tissue injuries can affect the muscles and tissues in your back and neck. Stiffness, back pain, and/or neck pain can ensue immediately or take days, weeks, or even months to appear. It is crucial to treat spinal connective tissue injuries immediately even if you are not yet experiencing neck or back pain.
Headaches and migraines are common symptoms that can occur as a result of spinal connective tissue injuries or any type of motor vehicle injury. Headaches may appear when specific vertebrae in your neck are restricted and out of position due to the impact of a crash. Sprained neck muscles can cause pain to radiate to your head. Any injuries or traumas to your head can cause headaches and migraines. If you are experiencing headaches after your car crash, then you should get treated as soon as possible so that your headache pain does not become permanent. At Exactacare Chiropractic & Injury Rehab we treat spinal connective tissue injuries so that you can become functional and return to normal.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT INSURANCE
Documented studies done by Charles Carroll, M.D., Paul McAtee, M.D. and Lee Riley, M.D. revealed that: “The amount of damage to the automobile bears little relation to the force applied to the cervical spine (neck) of the occupants.”
In other words, the damage to the passengers is not necessarily directly related to the damage to the vehicle. Thus all auto crash injuries need to be immediately evaluated by a qualified chiropractor like those found at Exactacare Chiropractic & Injury Rehab.
