All too often, we have people coming in for chronic pain with an unknown cause. Our chiropractors will sit down with them and investigate more about their pain. Eventually, we will find out that some of these patients were in a very small, barely mentionable fender bender. Now, it’s pretty obvious that when you are in a major car accident, you should immediately be checked. So why do we brush off the smaller accidents just because we are able to walk away? If a football player collided with another football player going 10mph, don’t you think they would be hurt? Padding or not, it’s likely they would both be checked out at the hospital. So why shouldn’t this be our way of thinking in a car as well? At Caron Chiropractic Clinic, P.A., in St. Paul, MN, we offer same day appointments for those involved in an accident. To avoid chronic pain, especially whiplash pain, urgency is key.

Delayed Whiplash Injury

The most common injury after a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash occurs when there is an abrupt backwards or forwards jerking motion of your head. Even the slowest moving accidents can cause whiplash and create a variety of different symptoms for your body. However in many whiplash cases, symptoms don’t show up until much later. Sometimes it can be 24 hours, sometimes it can be days, weeks, and even months. This is why it is extremely important to make an appointment with one of our chiropractors as soon as possible.

Whiplash can damage intervertebral joints, discs, ligaments, muscles, and even your nerves. This is one of the many reasons why chiropractic care should be your first choice of treatment.
