Car Accident / Whiplash and Chiropractic

Whiplash from car accident.Have you been in a car crash? Are you suffering from chronic pain because of your injury?

You don’t need to suffer. Learn how chiropractic can help you recover from auto injuries.

Auto injuries are a common source of chronic pain. Getting the proper treatment early after your crash can be very important in recovering quickly.

Most auto injury pain originates in the spine, and that’s why chiropractic can be beneficial: we get to the underlying trauma that you experienced and help your body heal.

An entire whiplash injury occurs in about 1/10th of a second — the length of an eye blink. But in that time, the human head can experience forces greater than that of jet fighter pilots.

Injury to the body is caused when one part of the body moves too quickly in relation to another part of the body. In whiplash, the head and torso are moving in different directions, resulting in damage to the tissues of the neck.

The neck is a very complex structure, though, and there are many important nerves and blood vessels that travel through the neck to other parts of the body. Damage to these tissues can cause a complex set of symptoms that can be difficult to diagnose. In addition, other parts of the body—such as the shoulder and lower back—can be subjected to dramatic forces, as well. This can result in pain in different parts of the body.
