Automobile injury pain and suffering treatments at Austin Active Life
The whiplash automobile injury to the neck, or cervical sprain/strain, is one of the most common injuries resulting from car accidents. Sprains and strains are often referred to as “soft tissue injuries” (soft tissue includes muscles, tendons, and ligaments). Soft tissue injuries, invisible on x-rays and often overlooked, can cause severe debilitating pain after a car accident.
Worse yet, if a soft tissue damage from an automobile injury is not directly addressed with soft tissue therapy, and left untreated and unresolved, the injured muscles and other soft tissues can end up causing chronic pain for months, years—even decades after the accident. The standard medical treatment of these injuries often amounts to nothing more than suppressing the symptoms with pain-killers and anti-inflammatory drugs, known as non-steriodal anti-inflammatory medication, leaving the injured muscles to hopefully heal on their own. Non-steriodal anti-inflammatory medication has other known bad side affects.
As injured muscles heal, they leave scar tissue behind in a way that leaves them weaker, less elastic, and prone to re-injury and pain. Muscular therapy approaches like Soft Tissue Release help to restore muscular strength, flexibility, and normal function by correcting or “aligning” the scar tissue. This can be crucial for full muscular recovery. Muscles tend not to recover fully when given only time in which to heal.
