Car Accidents and Whiplash

Involvement in a car accident can be a very traumatic experience, both emotionally and physically. Chiropractors have great success treating musculoskeletal injuries caused by the majority of car accidents, including whiplash. It is important to seek treatment as early as possible and not to wait for those aches and pains to just go away. In fact, according to a recent study of over 350 whiplash victims, 12 months after the accident 40 percent of the male and 50 percent of the female victims still had neck complaints. If you or someone you know has been involved in a car accident and has yet to seek treatment or has sought treatment but is still experiencing problems, we urge you to contact our office as soon as possible… we can help!
