When you are involved in a car crash, your body undergoes tremendous jarring movement, and this can lead to whiplash. Whiplash occurs when the experiences sudden, jarring movement of the head in any direction. This causes the spine to destabilize and can cause pain along with dizziness, headaches and vision problems. Chiropractic care is one of the most effective, drug-free ways to deal with car accident injuries, and the team at Ringer Chiropractic is ready to help you on the road to recovery.
After a car accident, you need to seek the services of a chiropractor immediately, because leaving whiplash untreated can cause long-term problems. It's not always possible to feel the full effect of the injury until weeks or even months after the accident, but a chiropractor is trained to spot these injuries before they project.
The ligaments supporting the head and neck are particularly vulnerable after a collision, and your chiropractor can help determine if you need care for these in addition to the vertebrae in the neck. At Ringer Chiropractic, we will perform a thorough exam to ensure that the right treatment is chosen to help you function properly.
