Whiplash What You Must Know

Statistically, there is a strong likelihood that you or someone you know will be involved in a car accident.  The average driver will be in a car crash once every 18 years translating into 4 accidents over the course of a lifetime.  Though the risk of death is very low, the odds are that one of these accidents will result in bodily injury (whiplash) and/ or property damage, is high.  Even a minor fender bender can result in an injury, which can cause problems.  If you’ve ever been in one you know what I’m talking about.  Typically the first course of action is treating your pain with painkillers and rest.  Once you feel better, you may think that you’re in the clear, but what if your symptoms linger?  Or in some cases if you have no symptoms, can a car crash come back to hurt you later in life?

From time to time I meet members of the community who are just as excited about helping people as I am. They’re knowledgeable in their field and do a great job at helping people to change their life. On occasion I invite these folks to share vital health information through our blog site. This blog post is a special one by a guy who is an all around cool dude, Zach Voigt. He is the owner of Level 10 Fitness in Ann Arbor. In his gym, Zach focuses on functional fitness, which incorporates normal movement skills that we use everyday. Zach is well versed in fitness and nutrition and has helped many people achieve their fitness goals. He is a great resource for health and fitness and from time to time I myself have picked his brain on the topic of weight lifting and CrossFit. Enjoy his post and by all means checkout his website.
