Whiplash/Car Wreck Treatment
Statistics show that up to 65% of people injured in car wrecks never fully recover. In fact, of all people with chronic pain, nearly half can directly point to a car wreck as the origin of their pain. If you've ever been in a car wreck (whether it's recent or old) and you have pain, we just might be able to help.
In fact, over the past 50 plus years more than 55 studies have been done to figure out how injured people respond after whiplash injuries, and to determine the best ways to treat those injuries.
Here's what the Journal of Orthopedic Medicine had to say after their study:
"Whiplash injuries are common. Chiropractic is the only proven effective treatment in chronic cases."

Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care
Americans go to a doctor for back pain more than for any other reason other than colds and flu.
According to Consumer Reports (2009) Doctors of Chiropractic were rated as the top practitioner for back pain, with survey respondents noting that they were more likely to be "highly satisfied" with the care received from their doctor of chiropractic (59 percent) than any other profession, including medicine, physical therapy, massage and acupuncture.
And chiropractic helps a lot of other problems, too! Problems like headaches (including migraine headaches) frequently improve with chiropractic care. Neck pain, upper back pain, carpal tunnel, TMJ disorders, numbness, pain or tingling in the arms, hands, legs and feet too. Plus, many seniors suffering with arthritis find that chiropractic is the quickest and best relief from pain and stiffness associated with arthritis. Athletes (including professional athletes) find that their abilities improve when they get regular chiropractic care. In fact, chiropractic care was so important in the career of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice he's now a spokesman for chiropractic.
