One moment everything may seem fine, when suddenly you’re involved in a serious collision.Most people have one thing on their mind after a car crash their car! However, it’s important to remember that you and your injuries come first. A visit to a chiropractor specializing in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) should always follow an auto injury. Chiropractors are specialists in damage to soft and hard tissue and Fellows of CBP are specialists in correcting the changes in alignment caused by trauma. Car crashes are an outside force that can move your spine to a bad position. Without outside forces to move your spine towards proper alignment, your spine will not correct itself. It cannot, according to Sir Isaac Newton's first law of motion. Those forces will be smaller and repeated so as not to be traumatic like the crash.

After an auto accident, some individuals experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away, such as blurred vision, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, reduced range of motion and arm pain. Whiplash can also result in minor back injuries, muscle injuries, ligament problems, and disc damage. Other individuals may be injured and feel nothing at all.
Treating pain or whiplash should never be secondary to bringing your car at the mechanic or working with your insurance company. If you’ve had an auto accident recently, your first priority should be taking the initiative to visit your chiropractor!
