Common Questions

  • Why do my arms and hands hurt?
    A quivering or tingling sensation and numbness in the arms and hands is quite common after an auto accident. This is because the spine houses all the nerves to the arms and hands, and most often the spine is the first area to sustain trauma. As a reaction to the loss of proper spinal curves or directly affected by the trauma, lower back pain can also crop up.
  • Why didn’t my headaches start immediately after my accident, and occur over a week later?
    This is because when your body’s ability to adjust to the constantly changing environment is exhausted, that is when symptoms occur. It is quite possible that at the time of your accident, your body wasn’t exhausted, and the after-effects of the trauma endured resulted in the headaches. There could be factors other than the accident affecting your body, such as stress, physical strain, etc. These symptoms can take days, weeks, months or even years to arise.
  • Will I ever be back to my regular old self again?
    Naturally, the sooner you address and resolve and issue, the quicker the recovery time. Putting off the required healing process will only result in delaying the road to recovery. There have been many cases of chiropractic patients testifying that spinal functions have improved and symptoms reduced post treatment.
