More than half of all Whiplash Injuries are caused by low-speed car accidents. Most patients who experience minor fender benders walk away from their experiences without noticing any pain. Because of this, they will continue with their routine until suddenly, they find themselves suffering from stiffness, recurring headaches, and other symptoms.
Whiplash is the most common car accident injury since its associated symptoms often do not appear for weeks or months after a collision occurs. The idea that if you are not in pain and your vehicle hasn’t sustained significant damage, everything must be okay is reasonable.
However, the potential long-term health consequences of allowing an underlying injury to develop are too threatening to not let one of our Tucker Chiropractors to perform a basic examination. If you are involved in a minor car accident, contact our Chiropractic Clinic to schedule an immediate appointment. Just dial (404) 592-1186.
The impact associated with car accidents, even minor ones, can easily cause significant tissue damage. When your neck is exposed to a force that causes it to move in multiple directions simultaneously, the ligaments that surround your neck stretch beyond their limits and tear. This is how Whiplash occurs and why they are so prevalent by accident victims.
