Auto Injury

And What to Do

An auto accident is a shocking, physical, and emotional event that may have long-lasting health impacts. Individuals involved in an auto accident frequently experience chronic pain for months or years after the auto accident.

2/3 of people

develop symptoms

Whiplash is a prevalent car accident injury.

According to the American Chiropractic Association, "approximately two-thirds of people involved in motor vehicle accidents develop symptoms of whiplash."

Symptoms usually occur 2 - 48 hours after the auto accident.

Whiplash may also develop after other accidents like falls, sports injuries, work injuries, and other incidents.


headaches, nausea,

dizziness, blurred vision

Patients with a whiplash injury typically complain about neck pain and stiffness that may extend into the shoulders and arms, upper back, or upper chest.

Two-thirds of whiplash patients suffer from headaches, particularly at the base of the skull.

Patients could also experience other symptoms, including dizziness, difficulty swallowing, nausea, or blurred vision after injury.



in time to

prevent injury

Whiplash occurs rapidly. The body typically uses a protective muscle reflex to prevent injury. When whiplash occurs, the brain did not have enough time to respond and avoid damage to soft tissues.

The brain's automatic protective muscle reflex protects cervical muscles, ligaments, discs, blood vessels, and nerves. Without protection, any or all of these may be injured in whiplash patients.

“I could barely move when I was first seen (same day visit as I called in desperation). As a nurse I was sure I knew what was wrong with me, and the doctors at Barnhill Clinic were able to tell me what was going on in our first encounter."
