Whiplash injury and neck pain, as a result of trauma due to a car accident, generally include but not limited to soft tissue tears of the ligaments, tendons, and muscle fibers, as well as ruptured discs, and displacement of complex structures in the neck. It is caused by abnormal motion of the force applied to the neck which causes movement beyond the neck’s normal range of motion. Some of the symptoms appear immediately and some may appear even 5 years after the accident.
When joint motion is impaired, there is reduced range of motion, inflammation, calcium build up, and scar tissue. This can be caused by repetitive motion, improper sitting, overexertion, slips, falls, accidents, or sports injuries. Impaired function of the shoulder complex joint can often lead to loss of function and over time to long term damage which is not easily corrected by conservative chiropractic care.
Joint mobilization with the help of chiropractic care at Radiant Health Chiropractic of Smyrna can restore normal range of motion that has become “locked up”, “jammed”, or injured. It improves blood circulation, reduces scar tissue and speeds up the healing process.
Back pain resulting from slipped, ruptured or herniated discs can occur to patients commonly between the ages of 20-50. In older patients they can be related to arthritis or nerve root compression. Most patients will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. It can eventually develop leg pain and be associated with sciatica. Discs herniate or rupture because of degeneration and tears to different parts of the discs.
These similar conditions exist in the area of the elbow. Tennis elbow refers to the overuse and inflammation of the tendon attaching the forearm muscles to the bone on the outside of the forearm. Golfer’s elbow appears with similar symptoms such as tenderness and weakness caused by overuse of the muscles of the forearm, but in the case of Golfer’s elbow the pain and weakness are on the inside of the forearm.
Pain in the lower back may be caused by an improper positioning of the bones, the discs between the vertebrae, ligaments around the spine and discs, spinal cord and nerves, muscles, abdomen and the pelvis. Bones and discs losing their proper position can cause inflammation and result in stress to the soft tissue and bones in the same area.
Jaw pain can be caused by improper bite, teeth griding, accidents, or neck misalignment. The disc that connects the jaw-joint properly in place, has moved out of its proper position.
The nerve in control of the thumb, index and part of the middle and ring finger is the median nerve. The nerve travels from the spinal cord, the neck, shoulders, arm, elbow, and ends up at the wrist. The compression of this nerve can occur at any one or more areas of the path in which it travels. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome doesn’t typically start in the hand, in fact the pain is the last symptom to appear. Carpal tunnel is formed by bones in the wrist. The median nerve, tendons and blood vessels pass through this passage. If any of the bones forming this tunnel, loses its proper position, inflammation, nerve pressure and pain result.
