Neck Pain After Auto CollisionsSeattle, WA Neck Pain Treatment
We see many folks with neck pain after a car crash in our Seattle chiropractic office. Because of the nature of car crashes, neck injury is very common and it's a problem that Dr. Alys Smith, DC is trained to treat.
In a crash, your body is exposed to forces more severe than what a fighter pilot experiences, so it's no wonder injury can occur. In fact, the first head restraints were designed for jet fighter planes to prevent this exact type of injury!
Neck pain can become chronic after a crash if not treated promptly, and we recommend that patients come into our Seattle office immediately after an injury. While you may experience extreme tenderness and swelling, Dr. Alys Smith, DC can still gently work to mobilize the tissues of your neck to prevent scar tissue from forming.
