The 100% Rule of Auto Accidents

Written By Berkshire Chiropractic Services on June 28, 2021

Auto Accident Treatment

Even a small auto accident can cause major health issues. Two multi-ton chunks of metal collided while you were in your car. That much mass packs a lot of force. Injuries can finally start hurting up to months later, making you susceptible to developing chronic pains if you wait to get treated. We want you to get seen as soon as you can at Tosk Chiropractic in Pittsfield. 100% of auto accident victims need to be seen by a chiropractor.

Some Auto Injury Statistics

  • Vehicles moving at 2mph generate enough force to cause a whiplash injury.
  • 15-40% auto accident injuries will develop chronic pain.
  • Easily ⅔ of victims will sustain a whiplash injury.
  • Whiplash symptoms take up to 48 hours after the accident to set in.
  • Data shows that 45-85% of whiplash victims can still be suffering five years later, most of them due to the spine losing its correct curvature.

Chiropractic Care and Auto Accident Injuries

If you don't get treated for whiplash, you risk developing chronic pain, chronic headaches, decreased range of motion, progressive degenerative changes in the joints of the spine, and increased risk for future disc problems.

Tosk Chiropractic treats whiplash, neck injuries, pinched nerves, herniated discs, soft tissue injuries, back pain and more related to an auto accident. It’s non-invasive care without drugs that often helps avoid developing long-term injuries while providing fast pain relief.

Chiropractic care can help eliminate pain triggers, restore range of motion, rehabilitate neck muscles, alleviate headaches, and expertly realign your spine, which further restores range of motion and empowers your body to heal. We also follow up with at-home self care to ensure a speedy and thorough recovery.
