Auto Accidents: “Whiplash”

Of the million of people who visit doctors of chiropractic each year, a large number have had whiplash injuries. Whiplash injuries occur when a person’s spine, usually their neck, was hurt by being unexpectedly or suddenly thrown very quickly in one direction and then in the opposite direction. You might say the head is “whipped around” on the neck.

Whiplash is one of the most common consequences of auto accidents; it is estimated that 15% – 30% of car occupants will suffer neck pain. In almost all whiplash-type injuries the spine is thrown first in one direction and then is pulled in the opposite direction because the muscles react to the initial injury by pulling or rebounding in the opposite direction. The rebound can and often does cause injury to your soft tissue. Occasionally a whiplash injury can result from side to side motion of the neck.Research proves that you can be injured in a car accident at speeds less than 5 mph with NO damage to your car. Injuries from these “low impact”accidents can and do cause permanent pain, suffering, and crippling arthritis if they are not treated properly.

Most of these “low impact” crashes do not cause pain at the time of the accident. Truth is, most of these victims that end up in constant pain later in life didn’t feel any pain at the time of the accident and never knew they were injured.

WARNING: “Soft Tissue Injuries” are sneaky and are potentially debilitating that will strike millions of Americans this year… and as a result, many of them will suffer for the rest of their lives due to misinformation and inappropriate care! That’s the bad news. The GOOD NEWS is that you don’t have to continue suffering!
