Chiropractic can prevent lifelong pain attributed to whiplash. “Today, the largest single contributor to chronic neck pain and overall spine pain is motor vehicle crashes. Of the 6 million injuries per year due to motor vehicle crashes, about three million are whiplash-type injuries. Of those, 500,000 to 900,000 will develop chronic pain.” Don’t’ be one of these statistics living in pain unnecessarily.
Whiplash has other lifelong indications: “The prevention and treatment of whiplash have ramifications that extend beyond the head and neck. Other conditions attributed to whiplash include blurred vision, dizziness, nausea, thoracic outlet syndrome, fibromyalgia, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Fibromyalgia is the third most common diagnosis made by American rheumatologists, and as many as 25 percent of diagnosed cases are attributed to an earlier trauma event, of which whiplash ranks number one in frequency.” ( Injury 1996 (Nov); 27 (9): 643–645

When you experience an accident you may not immediately feel pain or stiffness. This often come later up to two weeks after an accident! Many patients who stat to feel pain days after an accident are not even sure if it is caused by the accident because of the delay onset of pain. Dr. Prymak can help determine the cause of your pain. Auto accidents damage the soft tissue in your neck and back and can cause pain, muscle spasms, stiffness, tingling, and numbness in the neck or the extremities. Many suffer from severe shoulder injuries from the seatbelt of the car. Do not let scar tissue grow around these injuries creating permanent damage to your joints. Chiropractic care returns proper motion to these damaged joints and prevents the formation of scar tissue and future degeneration of the joints in your neck, back and extremities.
In a study done Chiropractic care helped 93% of whiplash patients. Of course, we did not need a study to tell us this since our patients tell us they feel better!
