You could be "Seriously Injured" from a "Not-So-Serious" Accident
Many people are misinformed when it comes to whiplash. Even a low speed auto accident can be severe.
Whiplash happens when your body suffers from an abrupt jolt. Most whiplash injuries happen when you are sitting in a fixed position in your car and are rear-ended by another car.
As your head is thrust back in a rear-impact collision, your brain is literally bounced forward by the back of your skull! As your head jolts forward, extreme forces are placed on your cervical spine, nerve roots and muscles.
When this “whipping” action occurs, it causes damage to the already extremely fragile neck structure and the muscles react by tightening to guard the injured area. This protects the damaged area from further injury.

"I was in so much pain I could hardly walk...I was living on pain pills. On my first appointment It was difficult to stand for an X-ray and I couldn't get on the table for treatment! With Dr. Nelson's knowldedge, caring ways and patience, I experienced improvement after each treatment. Now I can walk, sit and stand straighter than I have in a long time. I thank God every day for Dr. Nelson and his wonderful staff. "

In the U.S. alone there are over 3 million new whiplash injuries each year, and most occur in rear-end, low velocity collisions under10 mph!
Research shows that 1 year following a whiplash injury - without proper treatment - 8% remained totally disabled, 59% continued to have headaches, and 56% still had neck pain. Nearly half of whiplash victims will develop long-term pain varying from minor to severe. About 10-12% will become disabled. (Croft AC: Whiplash and Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries: 2009)
