So you are waiting at a red light and hear the sound of screeching tires… Then you hear the loudness of metal hitting metal and your car is suddenly pushed ahead!
Indeed, you are being rear-ended…
In a matter of a split second, your whole body gets pushed against your sear. Your head, isolated from your neck, delays in its reaction.
Your body changes directions in a whim, moving as far as the seatbelt allows. Your head gets snapped back immediately. You just can’t prevent it from happening.
Even the slightest of fender benders can result in a whiplash symptom. It could take a few days to feel your new whiplash injury. Possibly it could be a month or even longer to feel it.
So what do you do now? Get to Rauch Chiropractic & Massage for an examination!
Proper healing can be promoted by specific spinal adjustments. This can help restore your body’s proper motion and position of the spinal bones.
“The longer that you delay and wait,” says Dr. Thaddeus Rauch, “the more unseen damage from whiplash there is and the longer it will take to recover.”
Be sure to let us know if your injury is part of a workers compensation injury.
