How Acupuncture Can Help You After A Car Accident Injuries
Anyone who is involved in a car crash can suffer subtle injuries to the neck and back. It is always a good idea to get checked out by a chiropractor anytime there is even a possibility you suffered a car accident injury. At Back and Neck Care Chiropractic in Vancouver, WA, we serve all of Clark County. One of the treatments we offer for a car accident is acupuncture. Our dedicated on-site acupuncturist can give you ongoing acupuncture treatments to relieve pain and accelerate recovery.

Even when you are involved in a fender bender or when you crash at 2 miles per hour, your neck, back, and spine can suffer subtle injuries that are not evident right away. Even the smallest crash can result in just enough whiplash to create microscopic tears in the muscles of your neck and back.
Your body repairs those injuries with a process that begins with inflammation. Inflammatory hormones remove injured cells so your body can replace them. But the process of inflammation also involves swelling. The muscles in your neck are attached directly to your spine. When they swell, they pull on the bones of the spine, pulling them out of alignment. Nerves leaving your spine can be pinched so you feel constant pain, you lose sensation altogether, or muscles become immobile. And because the inflammatory process does not take place right away, you may not experience symptoms until weeks or months have passed after your accident. For this reason, it is important to consult an acupuncture professional (as offered at Back & Neck Care Chiropractic).
Kinds of Symptoms That Can result From A Car Accident Injury
Here is an incomplete list of the kinds of symptoms you can experience after a car crash:
- Neck pain and stiffness.
- Shoulder pain and stiffness.
- Lower back pain and stiffness.
- “Pin and needles” sensations in your hands and feet.
- Blurred vision.
- A feeling of not being “with it,” or attention deficit.
- Poor sleep.
- Enhanced feelings of post-traumatic stress.
Acupuncture can help to relieve all of these symptoms.
