Per Dr. Barry Matthisen D.C.

Many times, I have testified as to the prevalence of whiplash injuries.  Jurors are often surprised to hear that about half of all whiplash injuries never fully recover.  These people are left with chronic pain and sometimes disability depending on the severity if the neck injury.  Remember, even a rear-end crash with no or little visible damage to your vehicle can have enough force to create permanent joint and ligament damage and disc damage.  Why some people get injured more than others depends on risk factors, as seen below.

Your best bet for recovery is proper diagnosis and treatment of your injuries, that’s why I stay on the forefront of whiplash research and why I say our clinic provides “Researched Based Diagnosis and Treatment”.
