Whiplash Injury? You Don't Have to Wait For Treatment!
Have you been in a recent car crash? Unfortunately with the amazing winter in Colorado, can come car crashes in Centennial, Coolorado. If so, we can help you out.
You're probably told you have what's called a hyperextension hyper-flexion injury or commonly called whiplash. What happens is when you're stopped and you get hit from behind, your head and neck will rapidly extend and then flex.
What can you do to help?
Make sure the headrest is used and at a good location for your head. Don’t wait to seek care. Studies show that if you get care within the first 24 to 48 hours after an injury, you're far less likely to have that turn into a chronic injury. 50% to 80% of people in a car crash who did not seek care, still have pain one year or later after their injury, sometimes up to five years or even lifelong as a result of their injuries.
The combination of chiropractic care, active release techniques, and corrective exercises are effective in reducing pain and getting you back to where you need to be in a much quicker way. If you're experiencing neck pain after a car crash, our chiropractic office in Centennial, Colorado can help get you out of neck pain fast.
If your neck still hurts after trying these exercises, give us a call. We'll be happy to help you out.
