Even a minor automobile accident can have major effects on your health! When one automobile is struck by another, thousands of pounds of force are exerted on the neck and spine.

Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are thrown or “snapped” back and forth quickly. The painful result is injury to the ligaments, soft tissue, and discs of the neck and spine. Whiplash also causes impingement, stretching, or irritation of the nerves and the spinal cord. Whiplash can also cause headaches, numbness, pins and needles in the face, back pain, ear ringing, dizziness, hearing loss and/or blurred vision.

Too many people who have been in a traumatic automobile accident do not receive appropriate follow up care. That is the reason why over half the accident victims never completely recover from their injuries and may live on pain killers for years to endure repeated surgery. Proper rehab can make the difference between true recovery and healing or lingering pain and disability.

Unfortunately, many do not seek the care they need. As a result, millions of accident victims leave the hospital with as much spinal nerve stress as they had when they entered. They may continue to suffer for months, years, or even decades.

At AV Chiropractic Health Center, we will provide appropriate post-accident care to help heal sore muscles and ligaments, and to ensure rapid and complete recovery after an accident.

Insurance companies realize the many advantages of appropriate care. As such, treatment is generally covered in full by automobile insurance policies, whether you are a driver, a passenger, or a pedestrian….and regardless of who is at fault. Our clinic will assist you in dealing with insurance paper work and filing a claim with your insurance company. If you need representation by an attorney, we will recommend one that is local and cares about your needs as a victim.

Anyone who has been in a traumatic automobile accident, even if there are no obvious symptoms should have a proper examination. The damage from spinal nerve stress may take months or even years to surface. An exam and proper treatment can save an accident victim from much pain and disability later.
