The season is approaching where nature delivers snow and even covers roads in ice. Driving in such conditions means that you should be extra careful and drive at slower speeds in order to get to your destination safely.
Regrettably, some accidents just can’t be avoided, whether it’s you hitting a sheet of black ice that you couldn’t have possibly seen or you feel victim to the poor driving of someone else. Still, accidents such as these frequently lead to people suffering from whiplash, even if they don’t realize it.
Most accident victims only suffer mild or moderate whiplash. As such, they might not mind a sore neck or back, assuming it’ll just pass in several days. On the other hand, quite a few people never know that the force of an accident could have created spinal misalignments, even if just slightly. If this is left untreated, then time and gravity compound small misalignments into bigger ones as there is accumulating pressure on nerves, muscles, and ligaments. Research demonstrates that 7 years following whiplash, individuals are 40 percent more likely to be diagnosed with spinal degeneration as compared to anyone that wasn’t in a collision.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR YOUR WHIPLASH
In just a few short months after an accident, a victim might start feeling an increasing level of pain and discomfort from an unidentified whiplash injury. This can also result in a deteriorating posture as the human body will overcompensate for injuries and misalignments.
