Suffering from Whiplash?

auto injuries are commonly helped by seeing a chiropractor

Have you experienced a whiplash? Most car accidents are rear-end collisions. Each of which vary in severity. Many of our patients that are involved in rear-end collisions don’t even realize they have received injuries until weeks or months post-impact. Their medical doctors do not always acknowledge injuries that occur at lower speeds, but research today says differently. If you have been injured in an accident our Iowa City chiropractor will help you understand the options that you have.

To have success with a whiplash injury it’s important to work with a provider that understands the problem. Our team has experience with these types of injuries, so if you have recently been injured it’s important to get your spine checked as soon as possible. The sooner that you start care the less chance you have of developing long-term problems.


Whiplash in Iowa City

Whiplash injuries are a serious matter. The results can be devastating if an injury of this caliber is left untreated. What’s unfortunate is that most people don’t even realize they are injured until long after the accident. By the time many people realize they are in need of help, their problems have escalated into a much greater condition.

Injuries tend to be more significant when your headrest is positioned too low. In the instance where your headrest is positioned too low, it can act as an acceleration point when you are hit from behind. A 5 mph impact can result in your head whipping back at a much higher rate of speed causing greater injury.

Statistically, significant improvement was noted for 93% of the 28 patients studied in the Woodward study while under chiropractic care. In the research study chiropractic care consisted of spinal manipulation, PNF, and cryotherapy. Many of the patients were treated prior to the study with NSAIDS, soft collars, and physiotherapy.

We have experience helping individuals suffering from symptoms of a whiplash injury. Call today to see if chiropractic care can help you.
