Did you know the average driver will be in a car crash once every 18 years?
Did you also know that even a minor fender bender can result in an injury, which can cause problems?
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?
A whiplash injury can also happen from the force of a front or rear-impact accident or spin out that strain the neck muscles, discs and ligaments. Where traditional medicine often relies on medication for pain symptoms, medication can mask or cover up painful symptoms that could be signs of a larger issue.
Specific structural chiropractic care doesn’t just treat the symptoms of your pain, but the underlying injury or injuries causing you pain. Painkillers offer immediate relief, but not long-term pain relief, which could last years if you don’t treat your car accident-related injuries properly.
