Whiplash is the most common injury resulting from a car accident. Of course there are varying degrees of injury, but it is rare to see someone come out of a car accident without some kind of aches or pains. In a rear end collision, the head and neck is forced into extension and then flexion, which can result in injury to the muscles or ligaments of the spine. Dr. Dolan of Dolan Family Chiropractic in Aurora, IL successfully treats whiplash injuries everyday in practice using muscle therapy, physiotherapy, and gentle chiropractic manipulation. Many people ignore nagging aches and pains after being in a car accident. These minor injuries can turn into major problems down the line if left untreated. In most cases, the patient’s car insurance or the other person’s insurance will pay 100% of the bill! So there is no excuse to getting into seeing a specialist before your problem worsens. If you have any questions regarding chiropractic treatment, or if you have any questions about your specific personal injury case, feel free to call Dr. Dolan at 630-236-3090 to see if chiropractic treatment is right for you.
