If you have had a recent car accident, and have sustained an injury eg. to your neck, head, back, chest etc, then it is imperative to be treated as soon as possible.
For instance, with a whiplash injury, although the majority of whiplash injuries heal within six weeks after the injury, studies show approximately 30% of people who report neck pain after ten years.
So, it is vital to get checked even if you want to “tough it out” or think “it will get better”. Because you never know how these injuries will affect you later in life. Headaches, fogginess, tension – these are all symptoms that can arise anytime in the future.

My coworker had a car accident and he never went to the doctor to check. I found it interesting when you said that whiplash treatment can help to avoid future pain in his body. I will suggest to him to look for a chiropractor that can provide him with whiplash treatment.
Absolutely it can. If your friend is in Winnipeg, they are welcome to call us anytime!
