We all hear about motor vehicle accidents happening every day. Whether you hear of one on the radio, social media or on the news, they never seem to disappear. Chiropractors can help tremendously for car accident victims who are often left in a lot of pain. Many medical doctors prescribe painkillers as a first line of treatment. However, chiropractors can help heal injuries caused from motor vehicle accidents without the use of drugs.
Common symptoms that can occur after a motor vehicle accident are headaches, neck and/or back pain, dizziness, nausea, radiating pain, numbness and tingling, weakness, fatigue, irritability, nervousness, anxiety, jaw pain, popping and/or clicking, sciatica, leg pain, shoulder pain, rib cage pain, muscle pain, and stiffness.
