Chiropractic and Whiplash Injuries

auto accident neck painCar accidents can cause very serious injuries to the neck and back. The forces involved in these accidents can misalign the vertebrae in someone’s spine and cause severe soft tissue damage.

It is vital to see a chiropractor as soon as possible after these types of injuries. A delay in treatment may make it more difficult to correct the spinal misalignments and therefore cause more chronic symptoms and spinal dysfunction.

Chiropractic care can help the spine move properly again and help break up any scar tissue if performed soon after the injuries.

I really encourage people to start care ASAP because no other profession is qualified to assess the spine for spinal misalignments.

It is not uncommon for whiplash injuries to cause headaches, arm numbness, back pain, neck pain, jaw pain for months or years!

However, once Chiropractic care is implemented, pain relief can be greatly reduced along with proper spinal function.

Lastly, in Alberta, residents are covered by insurance for Chiropractic treatment when they create an accident claim. A patient can be covered with insurance for up to 21 treatments. In addition, we can apply for extended coverage afterwards if need be.

Yours in Health,
