Chiropractic Care and Auto Accidents
Auto Accidents are one of those unfortunate things in life that most of us will have to deal with at one point or the other. Regardless of how safe or defensive of a driver you are, you cannot control other people on the road. Hopefully you never have to deal with the stresses of an auto accident, but when one does happen, it is important that you know what you should do. If you have been in an accident, your body has been through a trauma and may need some assistance to recover correctly to minimize long term injury.

- Accidents at speeds of no more than 10 mph cause the head to exert 170 pounds of force on the neck.
