Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can be life changing. It can cause injuries that last a lifetime. Usually after being involved in a motor vehicle accident your symptoms do not appear for a few days due to adrenaline kicking in. Sometimes people try to brush the symptoms off and assume that they will go away. If you have injuries that are not treated in a timely manner they can get worse over time.
Chiropractors are trained to find the abnormalities of the musculoskeletal system that cause pain. Whiplash is when your head gets jolted and causes damage to the ligaments in your neck, usually from being rear ended. When ligaments get damaged after a trauma it cause serious injuries such as disc herniations. After being involved in a motor vehicle accident your chiropractor will thoroughly examine you and determine what type of treatment you need. Chiropractic care is conservative treatment that will help your body heal without rushing into getting injections and surgeries.
