Even if your car wreck seemed minor, it can cause major problems in your neck and spine. In many cases, the injury is not readily apparent as there are no physical signs or trauma and pain is not present. While you may take the absence of these indicators as a sign that you got out of the accident unscathed, you still need the professional of a chiropractor to give you the all clear.
In even small car wrecks, major trauma to your head, neck and spine can occur and it can take days, weeks or months for signs of injury to present themselves. In fact, it is estimated that more than fifty percent of car accident victims suffer the effects from their wreck more than forty eight hours after the incident. The condition of late appearing complications resulting from the wreck is so common it even has a medical term: late whiplash syndrome. Left undiagnosed and untreated, whiplash and late whiplash syndrome can lead to serious problems including migraines, blurred vision, dizziness and other issues. The common occurrence of late whiplash syndrome helps illustrate why it is so important to have an experienced chiropractor perform a full exam immediately following the accident. An experienced chiropractor can diagnose whiplash before symptoms are present and can effectively treat your injuries to prevent them becoming major problems.
