There might not be a more misunderstood injury after a car accident than whiplash. This should be a cause for concern because whiplash is one of the most common injuries after a car accident. These misunderstandings often lead to injuries getting neglected and worsening. When it comes to personal injury claims, some people think a whiplash injury is nothing more than a money grab (especially insurance companies). Other people view it as a legitimate injury, but they don't think it's anything to worry about and that it will go away on its own. In reality, whiplash is a genuine medical condition with varying degrees of severity. Most whiplash cases will resolve within weeks or months, but it's not uncommon for there to be long-term effects. It's imperative to see professional care immediately after an accident, even if you don't have immediate symptoms. Sometimes it can take hours, days, or even weeks for whiplash symptoms to present themselves, and untreated whiplash can have serious, long-term effects on your health. That's why you should see a chiropractor as soon as possible after your accident. But, can a whiplash injury go away and come back? We'll take a look at that question in the article below.

Is cracking your back the ultimate solution for backaches, neck pain, and headaches? The answer is... maybe. Back cracking can help relieve you of those pains, but not if you do it yourself. The back cracking we're talking about is spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulations are routinely used to treat pain conditions like back pain and neck pain. It's also used to treat other musculoskeletal conditions by applying force to the spinal joints. The idea behind spinal manipulations is that applying force to problem areas in the spine will restore the spine's structural integrity, improve the nervous system, reduce pain, and allow the body to heal itself naturally. Spinal adjustments of some type have been used for over 100 years. Today, spinal manipulation is used in both Western medicine as well as Asian medicines. In The U.S. and throughout North America, it’s usually performed by chiropractors, osteopathic physicians, physical therapists, and occupational therapists. A spinal manipulation typically involves the manual or mechanical applications of thrusts on the lumbar spine and cervical spine. In the article below, we will take a deep dive into spinal manipulation and what it means.
