Whiplash & Auto Accidents

Car accidents can cause a myriad of soft tissue injuries and subluxations. The result of such injuries can include vertigo, pain, decreased range of motion, and affects on your daily activities.

Often, the symptoms take a few days to set in after the accident or the pain will “go away” for a period of time before returning more severely than initially. This presentation is especially common with whiplash and when left untreated, the pain can persist, cause a number of other compensatory injuries, and even become permanent.

Resolve Neck & Back Pain

Whiplash associated with car accidents is a major cause of neck/back pain. According to the research, whiplash can happen in motor vehicle accidents as slow as 5 mph!

Whiplash symptoms can remain hidden for weeks after an accident, but studies have shown that the sooner you start chiropractic care after a motor vehicle accident, the better you will feel in the short term, and the fewer long-term symptoms you will experience.

At Active Edge Chiropractic our goal is to return your musculature and joint alignment back to, if not better than your pre-injury status. We address all aspects of your injuries simultaneously to return your muscular balance, joint motion, strength, and overall function.

Catch Threatening Injuries Early

Just because they didn’t diagnose it in the ER doesn’t mean it’s a not a problem.

It is important to remember that emergency room doctors are focused on ruling out fractures, bleeding, or other life threatening conditions and fail to fully access the soft tissue injuries and ensuing loss of function. And rightfully so. If those things aren’t caught early, they can be life threatening. So ER docs are great at making sure you live to see tomorrow. We’re here to make sure that the quality of life you have tomorrow and for the next 60 years is what you want it to be.

Even if you’re not feeling pain, it’s important to get evaluated by a professional who regularly deals with soft tissue injuries to fully assess the extent of damage to your range of motion, tissue quality, and your function.
