There are thousands of injuries that happen everyday from car accidents. One of such injuries is called whiplash. It accounts for over one million injuries that drivers experience each year. It is an injury that occurs to the neck area during a car accident. The jolt or jerk that is felt when a car is rear-ended causes pain in the neck area. After being injured it is important to choose the right car accident chiropractor to provide experienced and specialized treatment for the injuries. Proactive Chiropractic and Rehab Center is capable of providing whiplash treatment for those who have experienced an auto accident.
Many patients experience little to no pain immediately following a motor vehicle crash. Others may note a varying degrees of stiffness or pain. Gradually intensifying soreness and pain arising from normal inflammatory responses of the body to trauma typically begin from 12 hours to a few days later. In general, the more severe the symptoms and the more rapid their onset, the more severe the injury. The majority of clinical, automotive, and epidemiological studies report frequent delays in patients experiencing initial symptoms of neck pain after being in a collision, anywhere up to 4 days after the initial injury. It is common for upper extremity symptoms and headaches to have delays of onset several weeks to months after a car accident. That is why it is very important to be examined by a auto accident doctor, even though you might not be experiencing symptoms. If a patient does not get treatment following a car accident, chronic pain can ensue. That is why it is imperative of acting quickly to treat whiplash injuries. An injury can occur at as little as 5 mph crash, causing the energy of the crash to directly transfer into the occupants neck and back. In order to optimally begin the healing process, a person can greatly benefit through immediate chiropractic care to help with relief. If left untreated, the pain can get worse over time.
