Doctors of Chiropractic are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions caused by your automobile accident. Whiplash, and its associated problems are one of the most common reasons people visit a chiropractor. A recent study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine points out the superiority of chiropractic care for whiplash patients, while noting that "conventional treatment of patients with whiplash symptoms is disappointing". Your chiropractor is able to select and apply the appropriate treatment and rehab needed for your injury, and can often do so at no cost to the patient through their auto insurance benefits. Not having your injury examined and treated may lead to problems later in life, such as an earlier onset of arthritis. You owe it to yourself to make sure you have your injury, however minor it may seem, examined by a professional.
