Chiropractors and Auto Accidents

If you’ve ever been in a car accident you know that it hurts, a lot. Especially after a few days. Although some may think that low speed accidents won’t cause injury, unfortunately that is not always the case. If you’ve been involved in any sort of auto accident it’s best to get checked out by a chiropractor for whiplash or other non-symptomatic conditions, which if left untreated can lead to arthritis, disc generation, and more permanent damage.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are napped back and forth very quickly. Symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Headaches
  • Numbness
  • Back & Neck Pain
  • Dizziness
  • Ear Ringing
  • Hearing Loss
