Unexpected jolts and severe impacts can cause whip-like head and neck motions, resulting in spinal Subluxations.

Imagine you are in a car stopped at an intersection. Suddenly, the driver shouts, “Brace yourself. Instinctively you tense yourself for the crash. Before you can control your reactions, your body is thrust forward with the car, and your head and neck are whipped backward. You are the victim of whiplash.

Unexpected jolts and severe impacts can cause whip-like head and neck motions, resulting in spinal subluxations. Common producers of whiplash are falls, automobile accidents, or any force which regularly overcomes stabilizing and controlling structures in the neck and head.

As your head is thrust backward, several thousand pounds of force must be dissipated and absorbed through the neck. The degree of this force determines the impact and resulting damage to the neck.

Early detection of probable damage and appropriate care is essential in preventing serious consequences. Chiropractors detect even tiny misalignments of the cervical vertebrae … vertebrae, which may have been displaced by the impact and allowed to move out of position.  With specific chiropractic adjustments, the vertebrae can be restored to their normal position.

Early care is critical to minimize these effects. Because healing time can be quite prolonged, it is essential to allow adequate time for complete correction.
