In the event of a car accident, the driver and passengers may be thrown back and forth in their seats. This rapid motion can cause the neck-area strains and sprains known as whiplash. This condition is one of the most common injuries sustained in a car collision, but its symptoms will subside with time. The vast majority of whiplash cases can be treated by a combination of heat compress and over the counter pain reliever medication. However, some individuals may find that seeing a chiropractor may be the most efficient way to end their discomfort.
Whiplash is a serious injury that can cause sufferers to miss work and amass medical bills for their treatment.
