How many of these whiplash facts did you know?

Whiplash is not limited to car accidents.  “Wipe outs” on skates, skis, toboggans, roller blades, skateboards, snowboards or surfboards can also cause it.  Slips and falls can cause it too.

Most people know that they should get checked out after a forceful collision.  But did you know that an impact at only 8 km/h is enough to cause soft tissue damage?

Most rear-impact car accidents occur between 9 and 19 km/h.  This isn’t very fast, but it’s fast enough to cause injury.

In a rear-impact car accident, your head can accelerate up to 2 and a half times faster than the car you are in.

Symptoms of whiplash may not occur for weeks or even months after your accident.  By the time you feel them, you may not link them to that “long-ago” mishap.

As many as 88% of whiplash victims continue to feel pain and a certain amount of disability for years after their accident.

Chiropractic care is a safe, effective way to treat whiplash injuries.

Chiropractic care detects, corrects and prevents interferences in your nervous system.  It can relieve your pain while it helps your body to heal more quickly.
