Seems like it does not matter if the roads here in Everett are wet, dry or snowy, people are going to be rear ended.  I have a lot of post on this blog of what to do if you are rear ended and then have neck pain, upper back pain or headaches.  But what about how to avoid being rear ended?

My 15 year old son in driving!  As a passenger with him I am constantly telling him not to follow so close to the car in front of him.  There has been a few times that he had to hit the breaks a little harder than anyone in the car would like.  We have some good discussions (rather he listens to me lecture) about how many times i will see someone who is rear ended only because the distance between the cars is so small.  Both in regard to the car in front of him and the car behind him.  This might sound overly simple, but leave two car lengths between you and the car in front of you and you will be less likely to be rear ended.  (And tap your break when the person behind you is riding your rear!)

If you have been rear ended and think you may have whiplash and need a chiropractor in Everett, or if you have neck pain, upper back pain or headaches please give us a call to make an appointment to see if chiropractic care is right for you.
