Have you been involved in a car accident? It’s important to make sure you’re evaluated for any injuries. Head and neck injuries can be tricky and aren’t always obvious. At Danubio Chiropractic, we often treat car accident victims for whiplash.
What is Whiplash?
Whiplash is a head and neck trauma that can occur during motor vehicle accidents. The rest of your body is strapped in and protected by a seat belt, but your head and neck continue to move forward on impact because there is no restraint system to protect this part of your body. As a result, pain in the neck and head can occur. Whiplash is difficult to diagnose because the injuries aren’t always obvious, which is why it’s important to be evaluated after being involved in a car accident. Danubio Chiropractic provides specializes imaging in order to determine the extent of your injuries.
How Whiplash is Treated
At Danubio Chiropractic, we don’t recommend that you depend on pain medications for long-term relief. Chiropractic care can be beneficial in treating the injuries you sustain in a car accident.
