AUTO ACCIDENT TREATMENT LAKEWOOD | CAR WRECK TREATMENT LAKEWOOD
You’re in your car, relaxed, waiting at a stoplight. Suddenly you hear a screeching of tires behind you and the harsh sound of metal hitting metal. In the split of a second, before you can brace yourself, you feel your car moving forward from some unseen force! You’ve been rear-ended.
What happens in these few seconds can have tragic consequences. And what you do about it in the next hours, days and weeks can forever affect your health.
Upon impact, your body pushes deeply into your seat. Your head, momentarily isolated by your neck, delays its reaction while your body quickly reaches the limits of your seat. Then, your body instantly changes directions, moving forward to the limits of your seat belt. Now, your head starts moving backward in the opposite direction! Unrestrained by a seat belt, your head and neck are jerked back and then forward beyond its normal limits. Everything seems to be in slow motion, yet you are unable to stop your head and neck from whipping backward and then forward.
First surprise. Then anger. Then pain.
Don’t minimize your own injuries because your car has sustained little or no damage. An immediate chiropractic examination is essential. Pain pills won’t heal inflamed tendons and ligaments. Muscle relaxers won’t heal torn muscles. A cervical collar won’t restore a graceful forward spinal curve.
Specific chiropractic adjustments are essential, because they can help restore proper motion and position on individual spinal bones, which can help assure proper healing.
A new paint job can improve your car’s appearance, but what about the unseen damage to your spine?
Whiplash symptoms can be immediate or they can take days, weeks or months to appear.

Just to name a few. It is essential to get a chiropractic exam as soon as possible to prevent permanent damage.

“I was involved in an auto accident last December. I was experiencing neck pain, knee pain, low back pain and numbness on my toes. I couldn't do my any work or do my favorite outdoor activities due to the pain I had. After a few visits the pain started to subside and I feel much better.”
