Most people who experience a car accident that doesn’t damage their vehicle do not seek Chiropractic Treatment believing that their health is intact. Although today’s vehicles are subjected to higher standards of safety and thus, are built with technology and materials that allow them to absorb light impact, it does not mean that you are completely safe from injury.
Low-impact car accidents that do not cause a vehicle to fold into itself actually transfer the force to the occupant(s). As the vehicle moves out from under the driver/passenger, such as in rear-end collisions, a slingshot effect is created that causes the occupants to sink back into their seats before launching forward aggressively. Whiplash Injury is the most common accident condition sustained by low-impact victims because of this reaction – where the ligaments around the neck stretch beyond their limits and tear.
Regardless of whether you feel or appear to be ok after a car crash, there are many common accident injuries that do not produce noticeable symptoms for several weeks or months. By not seeking immediate Chiropractic Treatment after an accident, you are allowing potential injuries to develop, which can create a series of health complications and chronic conditions over time.
