Hidden Injuries of Car Accidents


It all happens so fast.

Auto accident - front end, with hidden injuries to passengersYou are sitting in your car at a red light and then WHAM!  You are rear-ended by another vehicle.

The sudden, unexpected accident that caused your whiplash injury may fade into memory, but the physical and psychological damage of whiplash can become chronic, severely affecting your quality of life.
Over 25% of people who are injured in auto accidents don’t make a full recovery.  That means that they live with some ongoing pain or disability related to their injury.
When we are injured in whiplash accidents, muscles are torn and ligaments are sprained.  Torn muscles and sprained ligaments heal with scar tissue which limits our mobility, causes pain in cold weather and can impede our ability to play the sports or participate in the leisure time that we enjoy.

Chiropractic care can give you the best chance at living a normal, healthy life after a car accident.

This is because chiropractic techniques were developed to relieve the neck pain, back pain, headaches and other debilitating effects of whiplash.

Specifically, chiropractic care will help you with:

  • restoring movement lost after the accident,
  • overcoming muscle weakness and enhance muscle tone,
  • speeding recovery,
  • diminishing chronic symptoms that can persist or recur over many years.

Chiropractic adjustments have proved successful for hundreds of thousands of patients. Chiropractic care significantly reduces patients’ distress and allows them the best chance of returning to their normal activities and lifestyle.
