Chiropractor speaks about rear end accidents and whiplash

Chiropractic and Acupuncture can help you get “pain free” from a rear-end automobile accident.

You’re in your car relaxed waiting at a stop light.  Suddently you here screeching of tires behind you and the crunching of metal hitting metal.  In that split second before you can brace yourself, you feel your car surging forward from the collision.  You have just been rear-ended.

Your body snaps forward getting caught by your seat belt.  Now, your head starts moving backwards in the opposite direction.  This is the “whipping” action that occurs from a whiplash accident.

Don’t downplay your own injuries because your car has sustained little or no damage.  An immediate chiropractic examination is essential.  Pain pills won’t heal inflamed tendons and ligaments.  Muscle relaxers won’t heal torn muscles.  A cervical collar will not restore your normal spinal curve.

Common symptoms with whiplash injuries are:  dizziness, headaches, loss of concentration, pain in the neck and upper back, tingling in the shoulders and arms, and inability to sleep.

Consider chiropractic and acupuncture to help restore proper motion, proper positioning of spinal bones, and to speed healing.  We can help you get well and stay well after the trauma of whiplash injury.
