Automobile Injury Chiropractic Care
Getting in a car accident is something that nobody wants to ever experience. In addition to your car being damaged, you may also have damage to your body. One major injury that commonly occurs during a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash is a generic term applied to injuries of the neck caused when the neck is suddenly and/or violently jolted in one direction and then another, creating a whip-like movement. During a rear-end auto collision, your body goes through a rapid and intense acceleration and deceleration. There are different forces that act on the body, contributing to the overall injury. With such a sudden and forceful movement, damage to the vertebrae, nerves, discs, muscles, and ligaments of your neck and spine can be substantial.
The most effective treatment for whiplash injuries is chiropractic care. Chiropractic care utilizes manual manipulation of the spine to restore the normal movement and position of the spinal vertebrae. It is by far the single-most effective treatment for minimizing the long-term impact of whiplash injuries. The treatment plan will depend on the severity of your whiplash injury. Our primary Chiropractor, Dr. Ross Leago, will take x-rays and conduct an exam prior to your first adjustment and will create a plan of action to get you in optimal health in no time.
