Dealing with Cervical Acceleration/Deceleration Syndrome (CADS)
You may be experiencing CADS if you have been involved in an auto accident. It occurs when there is a hyperextension of the muscles, similar to whiplash. This forceful movement can result in minor to severe pain and interrupt your daily activities. Once you have experienced this kind of trauma, it is of utmost importance to seek medical attention right away because CADS is best treated when found early. Utah Accident Clinic’s chiropractor treatment program will help to reduce your pain and get you back to feeling back to normal.
CADS Caused by Auto Accidents
Hitting your breaks abruptly or being hit from behind can cause your head to jerk forcefully, resulting in neck injuries. CADS symptoms include decreased range of motion, stiffness in your neck and tenderness. It is important to consult with a chiropractor professional after being involved in an auto accident, so they can let you know what course of treatment works best for you.
