Whiplash injuries from auto accidents occupy the majority of accident-related cases that Chiropractors treat. This is the nation’s number one auto accident related injury. At Advantage Chiropractic, we successfully treat many types of whiplash and motor vehicle related injuries daily.
Even “fender-benders” can cause hidden injuries that can develop into pain, headaches, and arthritis. Even worse, most people who have been involved in an auto accident may not even know that they’ve been hurt. Most doctors give pain killers that hide these injuries. The chiropractic approach to these types of injuries is to use specific chiropractic adjustments to help return spinal function. After a thorough case history and examination, our doctor will recommend any necessary care to help restore proper motion and position of spinal bones. If caught early enough, inflammation can be reduced and scar tissue can often be minimized.
Running a close second to whiplash is the seatbelt injury. Although lifesaving, the seatbelt causes misaligned ribs and vertebrae, which in turn pinch and pull the nerves that are connected to these affected areas. The result is pain. Why go untreated after an automobile accident? Pain does not have to become a way of life after an accident. If you’re involved in an accident, whether it occurs on the job or on the road, contact Advantage Chiropractic for a complete post accident examination. It could save you from having to say, “….it’s never been the same since the accident.”
