Trinity Chiropractic offers excellent care for you and your family after car accidents, whiplash, and motor vehicle injuries. Dr. Johns follows the research from the San Diego Spine Research Institute which is the leading organization dedicated to discovering injury mechanisms and treatment options for injuries sustained from car accidents.
Whiplash is a common problem caused in car accidents. This occurs when the neck is forcefully "whipped" during the sudden impact of a crash. This can create damage to the structures of the spine including bones, muscles, ligaments, discs, and nerves.
The speed of the accident does not necessarily dictate the amount of injury that can occur and often symptoms will not appear until weeks or months after an accident. Research has shown that even a five mile-per-hour fender-bender can cause whiplash injuries and nerve trauma with long-lasting negative side-effects. That is why it is always necessary to receive a chiropractic exam for whiplash after any car accident before permanent injury is allowed to set in.
Common symptoms of a whiplash injury include:
Unchecked neck injuries after a motor vehicle crash can lead to chronic pain, arthritis, and degeneration. Often after an accident the pain is so overwhelming that people are afraid that chiropractic care will not be able to help them. That is why Dr. Johns uses gentle techniques that helps alleviate the pain and fix the problems.
