Being in a car accident can be one of the most terrifying and overwhelming experiences a person lives through. While no one ever wants to be in an automobile accident, it is important to know how to proceed with treating your injuries should you ever be involved in one. Visiting Champion Chiropractic for professional chiropractic care is always one of the first things you should do.

If you’ve ever watched auto racing on television, you’ve probably noticed that the race cars almost always disintegrate when they crash. This is because they are designed to push away the force of energy created by letting those pieces of the car break off, thus protecting the driver from the forces encountered during the crash.

Off the track, in automobiles you and I drive, the opposite occurs. Our vehicles are designed to be more durable and sustain more of an impact -there’s less cost to insurance companies when performing repairs.

Unfortunately, this creates and causes a greater amount of injury to the individuals that occupy the vehicle during a crash so more of the crash force is translated through the individuals that are inside the vehicle, thus the injuries we see today are much greater than they were years ago when the cars were actually weaker.

You may be suffering from headaches, pain or general discomfort as a result of a whiplash-related injury. Most people assume that whiplash injuries only occur during high-speed accidents, but a change in speed of just 2-3 miles per hour during an accident can cause them.

So, if you’re ever in even a minor motor vehicle accident, it’s imperative to get checked for soft tissue injuries that often take days or weeks to manifest. It is not uncommon to see injuries that the individuals are unaware of; whiplash, muscle sprains/strains and subluxations of the vertebrae; all of these can create complications down the road.
