Before continuing, people are inundated with misinformation about collisions. Here is a brief article on the truth behind accidents, insurance, and chiropractic care.
If you or a loved one has been in a motor vehicle accident, no matter how minor it seemed, we encourage you to get checked by a doctor. Chiropractic care after car accidents can save your quality of life as you age. In accidents with a change of speed of 5mph, nearly 40% of the passengers were injured.* Whiplash can occur in minor accidents as slow as 5mph. These collisions can change the structure of your neck setting you up for a decreased quality of life as you age, if left untreated.
What is whiplash and why is it so dangerous?
Whiplash is a soft tissue injury to the neck. It is characterized by a collection of symptoms that occur following damage to the neck, usually because of sudden snapping back and forth (rapid flexion and extension) of the head and neck. This disorder commonly includes injury to intervertebral joints, discs, and ligaments, cervical muscles, and nerve roots. Symptoms such as neck pain may be present directly after the injury or may be delayed for several days, weeks, or even months. In addition to neck pain, other symptoms may include neck stiffness, injuries to the muscles and ligaments (myofascial injuries), headache, dizziness, abnormal sensations (burning or tingling), shoulder pain, or back pain. Some people may also experience cognitive, somatic, or psychological conditions such as memory loss, concentration impairment, nervousness/irritability, sleep disturbances, fatigue, or depression.
Unfortunately, most people who have been in motor vehicle accidents do not receive chiropractic treatment. This can cost the patient time and money in the future for something they should not be responsible for. Chiropractic Biophysics is the only type of chiropractic proven to not only help to alleviate pain from whiplash injuries, but also to improve or in some cases restore normal spinal structure. This unique form of chiropractic care after car accidents, can actually make your quality of life better than it was before the accident.
