Common Car Accident Injuries
If you’ve recently been involved in an auto accident, you may experience a variety of symptoms, including the neck pain and other agonies associated with whiplash. On the other hand, you may not be suffering any symptoms at all, which can also be a bad thing if you’re actually injured and need of care without being aware of it. A car accident injury calls for the skill, expertise and compassionate care of a top-class Vancouver chiropractor — and here at Dr. Ibolit, our chiropractors can make sure you receive that care.
Whiplash is a neck injury resulting from forceful and rapid back and forth neck movement, like the cracking of a whip. Whiplash injury is produced most often during a rear-end car collision but can happen during impact sports and other trauma. If within 1-3 days of a car collision you experience worsening neck pain and stiffness, loss of movement in the neck, headaches, pain or tingling in the upper arms and shoulders, dizziness, and fatigue, you may have suffered a whiplash injury.
Physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic manipulation, and other forms of manual hands-on therapies are all valuable and effective for helping people recover from car accident injuries and whiplash.
