I have written blogs about this in the past. Although I am reminded about one time a week how important it is, so I am compelled to remind others.
I just had a gentleman come in the office of neck pain and headaches. The pain had been there since December of 2011. Even though he had been getting worse by the month, he thought the neck pain and stiffness and headaches would go away, because the rear end collision was so small. Only 20 mph!
Well after a few treatments it became apparent that he had suffered and fairly severe whiplash. His neck range of motion was severely limited, his muscles of the neck were severely tender to touch and he had difficulty lifting his head off the exam table. It was difficult to explain to this gentleman that if would have came in right after the rear end collision he most likely would have been done with care by now and had most likely been feeling great.
My name is Dr. Greg Beasley and I have been a chiropractor for 19 years. A majority of my practice is whiplash type injuries. We do have on site massage therapy and X-rays if needed. If you or someone you know has recently been involved in a car accident and you think you may whiplash give us a call sooner than latter for an appointment.
