Approximately three million people sustain Whiplash Injury as a result of a car accident.
Whiplash is one of the most common conditions our Jonesboro Car Accident Injury Chiropractors treat, helping hundreds of patients throughout the greater community overcome their pain and return to their routine.
If you are involved in a car accident, it is imperative that you seek professional Chiropractic treatment as soon as possible.
Whiplash: Ignored and Undiagnosed
Despite Whiplash serving as one of the most common car accident injuries, it is also ignored and undiagnosed because its symptoms do not always appear right away.
This means that regardless of the damage your vehicle sustains, even if you are involved in a minor “fender bender,” you still need to be examined by a Jonesboro Chiropractor to protect yourself from long-term to permanent damage.
What Is Whiplash?
Patients experience Whiplash when they are exposed to a sudden force that sends or “whips” their head and neck in multiple directions.
In most cases where Whiplash is the result of a car accident, it usually happens when the victim is waiting at a stop sign or red light and are rear-ended by another driver.
The force that exists at the time of the accident causes the tendons, tissue, and ligaments surrounding the victim’s neck to stretch beyond their limits and tear.
