Have you or someone you know been involved in a car accident near Olympia, WA? One of the most common injuries from a car crash is the damaging effect of whiplash. Whiplash occurs when a sudden, jarring movement of the head is sustained backward, forward or even to the side. Whiplash causes instability in the spine and causes severe pain as well as these other indicators:
• Blurred vision
• Neck pain
• Shoulder pain
• Reduced range of motion in the neck
• Arm pain
• Neck stiffness
• Low back pain
It is critical that chiropractic care is sought immediately after an automobile accident since allowing the effects of whiplash to go untreated can induce long-term pain. The seriousness of the physical effects of an accident is not always known or felt immediately following. It can take days, weeks or even months for major symptoms to show up, which is why chiropractic care is essential to maintaining the health of a spine that has been through a trauma.
Our Olympia Chiropractors and Massage Therapists will help you feel better as quickly as possible. If you were involved in a car accident near Olympia, call us today and we will help you file a claim and get started feeling better immediately. Most insurance will cover 100% of the cost of your medical bills even if the accident was your fault. We want to help you, call us now.
