Did you know that nearly 3 million Americans are injured in car accidents each year? Of those hurt in a serious crash, more than half end up facing lifelong injuries. It’s true that even smaller incidents, such as fender bender taps, can cause long-term pain and suffering throughout the body as well.

The best option to help treat persisting aches and pains after an accident is to see a chiropractic doctor from our clinic. Here at McCann Family Chiropractic, we focus on helping all of our clients achieve whole body wellness. Dr. Matt works with accident victims regularly to help realign their spines, relieve chronic pain and make sure they get the recovery they deserve.
Why Do Accidents Affect the Neck and Back
While car companies have made huge strides toward implementing modern safety features, with or without a seatbelt, the head, neck and back are still heavily impacted by accidents. Unfortunately, there are little to no accident safety devices in a car that actually stop the neck or back from plunging back and forth during impact. Even seatbelts and airbags can jerk the vertebrae out of place and force the spine into abnormal positions.
If you’re experiencing neck or back pain after your collision, there’s a good chance that you’ve experienced something called whiplash. Whiplash is the rapid back-and-forth motion of the neck that occurs when a vehicle suddenly stops or collides with another object. This quick jerking motion is often unavoidable and can cause serious damage to the neck and spine. Which is why it’s crucial to see a chiropractic doctor immediately after your crash.
