Auto Accidents often cause whiplash injury by violently forcing the head and neck backward (hyperextension) and forward (hyperflexion). The injury is often worse if the head was turned at the time of the accident. Often you cannot feel it right away and then the next day, the pain begins to settle in and becomes worse over time.

There are three million whiplash injuries in the U.S. every year. Whiplash leads to long-term disability in 10% of people injured in auto accidents. 30-50% of whiplash victims never fully recover if left untreated.

Specialized Treatment For Whiplash

Whiplash can be diagnosed with an examination or using x-rays. The course of treatment will be specialized depending on the extent of your injury. Physical rehab consisting of myomassage, electric muscle stimulation, cold therapy, exercising and stretching will be performed. Chiropractic treatment of whiplash injuries gently realigns the spine and helps regain muscle strength and flexibility.
