If you had a car accident, please seek an immediate medical or chiropractic evaluation. Whiplash injury is a very common injury to neck and upper back after the car accident, caused by a sudden movement of the head (jerked forward and backward or side to side) that results in the damage to the supporting muscle, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back. Sometimes it takes weeks or months to feel the pain so you can think that you are not as injured as you really are. However, if you leave the condition untreated, more serious complications can develop, and some of the damage from the injury may become permanent.
If your car is damaged, then probably your body is too.
Your body is more important than your car! Take care of yourself!
