With care, the sooner you start, the less likely you are to develop long term spinal and nervous system issues.
WHIPLASH IN Olympia
Whiplash injuries are not something that should be overlooked. Left untreated, these injuries can result in lifelong problems. The issue, however, lies in the lack of identification and treatment of whiplash. Many people realize they have a problem long after the accident and by this time, the severity of the injury is much greater.
The most significant whiplash injuries occur when the headrest is low. This is because it functions as acceleration point for your head and neck in the event of a rear-end collision. An impact of 10 mph can convert into much greater speeds for your head and neck with your headrest positioned in this way.
