There are many myths about being injured in an auto accident and getting quality professional treatment for Columbia auto injury. The first myth is that whiplash injuries are a fake or a fraud, this can not be further from the truth. Being professionally evaluated and treated by a Columbia auto accident whiplash chiropractor is imperative.

The second myth is that if there is little to no damage done to your vehicle, you can not be injured. Again completely untrue, newer cars are made to absorb the force of an impact, but through most of these features they really translate the force directly to the vehicles occupants and some times magnify those forces many times over. If you ever watch a NASCAR race you will understand this. When one of the racecars crashes it literally disintegrates around the driver, the kinetic energy of the crash is translated to the parts of the vehicle that are destroyed many times sparing the driver from serious injury. Now when your new sedan hits the car in front of you at say 10 MPH, the bumpers are not made to take the kinetic energy and be destroyed, they are made to bounce back into shape, the kinetic energy from this impact is translated to the occupants of the car and not absorbed by the car. An auto accident injury chiropractor can evaluate you for whiplash.

Whiplash from motor vehicle accidents is thought to be a major cause of late-developing chronic neck pain, headaches and stiffness. Even low-speed accidents can generate enough kinetic energy to cause microscopic ligament and muscle tears and vertebral misalignments. It is important to make sure that these injuries are properly treated to prevent problems from resurfacing in the future. See an auto accident injury chiropractor today.
