Have you been in a car accident recently? Have you thought about why you should see a chiropractor? The chances of being hurt or killed in an auto accident are increasing dramatically, likely due to distracted driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), not only did fatalities increase by 7.2% in 2015, “The estimated number of people injured on the nation’s roads increased in 2015, rising from 2.34 to 2.44 million injured people.”
Do you know what help to seek in the event that you do have an accident? It is important to have a plan in case this has happened to you or does happen in the future. Of course if the accident is serious, victims should always seek care at a hospital or with a medical professional. Even if the accident doesn’t appear to be bad and you don’t have any pain or obvious injury right after the accident, one of the first things you should do is see a chiropractor.

Did you know women are far more likely to sustain a whiplash injury than a man by a ratio of 2 to 1?
A study comparing gender in whiplash injuries concluded: “This population is more likely to be injured under whiplash loading”. Women are also more likely to suffer chronic (long lasting) symptoms from such accidents even with low-speed impacts. A study found that once injured, women are between 2 to 2.3 times more likely than men to have chronic symptoms.
Fortunately another study found that women who visit a chiropractor shortly after injury may have better outcomes than those who wait. Continue reading Women and Whiplash
It only takes a small force to cause injury to the lower neck, which is partly why even very low speed accidents cause injury. It seems counter-intuitive but before damage occurs in a car accident, the car getting hit remains relatively stiff and much of the energy from the collision goes into accelerating the car and the occupant(s) forward (causing the whiplash injury). Once the car getting hit starts to crumple much of the energy is spent bending or breaking parts on the car rather than Continue reading The Great Paradox: Car Accidents and Whiplash
