Minor Accidents are Most Dangerous

The latest research studies conclude that occupants can be injured considerably more in auto accidents that could be termed “fender benders” than in higher speed collisions.

It is very tempting to minimize your injuries because your car has very little or no damage, however nothing can be further from the truth according to the experts.

What Happens to Your Body

Slow motion video reveals that upon impact, your body is forced deeply into your seat and then within an instant it changes direction, moving quickly forward to the restraining limits of your seat belt. However, your head actually moves in the complete opposite direction!

Since the seat belt cannot restrain your head, it is jerked back and forth beyond its normal limits. Even though everything seems to be happening in slow motion you cannot stop your head from the whipping motion of quickly backward and then immediately forward… Ouch!

Treating Whiplash Quickly is Vital

Seeing a chiropractor after a car accident is vital!  Whiplash can cause very serious soft tissue damage which, left untreated, can significantly diminish your quality of life. Unfortunately, these issues are often masked with traditional medical treatment.
