What Is Whiplash?
Whiplash is an injury to the neck that is caused by a quick and forceful back-and-forth movement, which is similar to the cracking of a whip. Whiplash commonly occurs when you are rear-ended, but can also result from physical abuse, sports accidents, or other types of trauma.
What Injuries Can You Experience from an Auto Accident?
Besides whiplash, you can also experience the following injuries:
- Neck pain
- Reduced range of motion
- Tenderness in the arms, back, or shoulders
- Misaligned spine
- Ligament damage
Why Should I Meet with a Chiropractor After an Auto Accident?
Unfortunately, medications don’t address auto accident injuries. They typically hide the problem and not so much treat it. Here at HealthQuest of Murray, Dr. Tran offers only the finest treatments and diagnostic techniques to help expedite the healing process, minimize the symptoms, and prevent injuries from coming back.
Should I Contact HealthQuest of Murray Even if I’m Not in Pain?
If you’ve been in an accident, it’s always a good idea to see our chiropractor in Murray, Utah. Most whiplash and auto injury symptoms will not appear several days or weeks following the accident, possibly impacting on your health. Also, if left unaddressed, not only will the injury become worse, but it can affect how you recover from it.
Will My Auto Insurance Cover My Appointment?
While everyone’s health plans are different, most of the patients we serve at HealthQuest of Murray is covered by insurance. We can verify your insurance before your appointment and explain what is covered.
