Massage and Chiropractic Care after a car accident
Did you know that in the state of Arizona, there were over 100,000 car accidents in 2012 (https://www.azdot.gov/mvd/Statistics)? Rear-end accidents were the most common type of crash, undoubtedly causing whiplash to the drivers, amongst numerous other injuries. Whiplash type injuries can result in headaches and severe pain due to torn muscles and strained tendons.

The combination of regular adjustments and massage therapy are very important, especially if you have been involved in an auto or motorcycle accident. As soon as you are in a car accident, you need to seek medical attention right away, and if you are not severely injured, then calling your local chiropractor is the next step.
Many injured patients wait a day or two to see their chiropractor, but as the hours tick on after your accident, your muscles continue to contract and swelling increases. The day of your accident is the day you should get an examination from your chiropractor.
