Your Body and Whiplash

whiplshAccording to insurance statistics, 1 in 5 people  will be involved in a road traffic accident in the next 2 years.

Our busy society has created a congested road network and the weather this time of year makes it almost impossible for you not to encounter an accident on the road.

What is far worse is that most people involved in a road accident quickly forget about the incident as soon as their cars are repaired or their pain has eased.  This is unfortunate.

* Why?  Because any accident that has caused damage to someone’s car has almost invariably caused injury to their spine, whether they feel it immediately or not.

* Why?  Although, some accidents do cause immediate pain, in most cases, people ignore the signs of spinal injury until months or years have passed and spinal degeneration has occurred.

It is not unusual to be hurt during a road traffic accident and for the pain to go away either by itself or by the temporary use of muscle relaxants, pain killers or collars.

However, unless the spine has been checked by an expert … and the only true spinal expert is a Chiropractor … then the unaware victim is only lying in wait for several months or years until those seemingly minor injuries to manifest themselves into real, painful and possibly disabling spinal conditions.

Don’t let this happen to you, or anyone you care about, even a mild accident can cause:

* Headaches
* Dizziness
* Neck pain or stiffness
* Arm pain
* Pins and needles
* Low back pain

No one understands the spine like a Chiropractor.

* Why?  Because the Chiropractor looks at the underlying cause and the possible future repercussions of the initial injury. Other health care specialists only look at the immediate pain or disability and once it has been taken care of by drugs, collars and rest, they dismiss the future implications until they actually occur.

If you know someone who has been involved in a road traffic accident, care enough to refer them to your SpineLab for a FREE DISCOVERY VISIT.  They will appreciate you for caring.
