Auto Accidents/ Whip Flash

Even a minor automobile accident can have major effects on your health!
When one automobile is struck by another, thousands of pounds of force are exerted on the neck and spine. Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are thrown or "snapped" back and forth very quickly. The painful result is injury to the ligaments, soft tissue, and discs of the neck and spine. Whiplash also causes impingement, stretching, or irritation of the nerves and the spinal cord.

Whiplash can also cause headaches, numbness, pins and needles in the face, chest, arms or hands, anxiety, neck pain, back pain, ear ringing, dizziness, hearing loss and/or blurred vision. Too many people who have been in a traumatic automobile accident do not receive Chiropractic Care. That is the reason why over half of the accident victims never completely recover from their injuries and may live on pain killers for years to endure repeated surgery. Chiropractic care can make the difference between true recovery and healing or lingering pain and disability.

Unfortunately, Chiropractic is not yet available in emergency rooms and medical doctors are not trained to locate and correct spinal nerve stress. As a result, millions of accident victims leave the hospital with as much spinal nerve stress as they had when they entered. They may continue to suffer for months, years or even decades afterwards
