The Serious Dangers Of Whiplash
Please be sure to seek treatment immediately.
Whiplash is not caused by a powerful head injury, or any type of contact injury. It is actually caused by a sudden, powerful and forceful movement of the neck and head that commonly occurs in auto accidents.
Here are some important facts you should know.
A Healthy Neck X-Ray
Untreated Whiplash Neck X-ray
A large number of auto injury victims go untreated since the injury is not visible.
The long term consequences of untreated soft tissue injury are not immediately evident.
Pain pills mask a whiplash injury but do not repair the injury, and so the pain returns.
The body begins to respond to a tissue damage injury right away by forming scar tissue.
After an injury, the body begins filling the damaged area with collagen instead of new cells.
Untreated injuries result in a permanent misalignment of the body due to the new scar tissue.
Once the invisible disc and joint degeneration has begun to take place, it is there to stay.
Full healing takes months, but the first 6-8 weeks is a critical time period for primary healing.
Chiropractic care reduces the harmful effects of auto injuries by improving the way it heals.
