When it comes to car accident injuries, you can’t just “walk them off.”

Even a whiplash injury deserves quick, thorough treatment.

That fender bender put your car in the shop, but at least you were able to walk away from the accident. In fact, all you have is a little soreness in your neck. No big deal, right? It’ll heal on its own with a little ice and a couple of ibuprofen.

Unfortunately, whiplash has a reputation of being either a minor injury or a completely fabricated condition designed to make lawyers rich. As always, the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

Your whiplash injury might not warrant a hospital stay, but it’s a lot worse than just “a sore neck.” In this article, we’ll talk about what happens to your body during a whiplash injury, the immediate and long-term symptoms, and the best way to seek treatment.



Chiropractic care is a great tool to have in your scoliosis management plan.

In this article, we’ll look at the many ways a chiropractor can provide scoliosis treatment.

It isn’t exactly an official diagnosis (okay, we made it up). But that doesn’t make it any less annoying.

Here are some of the issues you may experience during quarantine, plus how to get rid of the pain.

If you’re anything like the rest of the world, your daily routine probably looks nothing like it did in January.

Instead of going into the office, you’re working from the couch, catching up on your “honey do” list, homeschooling your kids, or simply watching Netflix. And if you’ve noticed a lot more soreness and pain over the last few weeks, you’re not alone.

Staying home might lessen the spread of the coronavirus, but it can also be a (literal) pain. Those makeshift work spaces, home projects, and good old-fashioned anxiety can cause a number of painful conditions, from achy backs to muscle sprains.

Sound familiar? You might have Self-Isolation Pain Syndrome.

Tylenol, Asprin, Advil…which is the best OTC to help your aching back?

As it turns out, there’s a drug-free alternative that’s better than the best OTC for back pain.

Your spine is incredibly amazing. It’s responsible for bearing your weight, protecting your spinal cord, holding your ribs in place to protect your heart and lungs, and remaining flexible enough to allow you to move.

But most people don’t give their spines a second thought…unless, that is, they’re feeling back pain.

An estimated 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. And most of those people will turn to an over-the-counter (OTC) pain medication for quick relief.

What is the best OTC for back pain? And are they really the best option?



Is the COVID-19 pandemic a (literal) pain in the neck? Don’t go to the hospital!

Here’s three reasons why chiropractors have been deemed an essential business.

Whether you’ve been treating your pain with medications or simply “powering through” it, you’re probably hesitant to do anything about it now.

Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are at full capacity with patients who have been infected with COVID-19 and you’re trying to stay at home to help flatten the curve. You’d hate to increase the burden of doctors and nurses on the front lines or, worse yet, contract the disease yourself.

But musculoskeletal pain doesn’t schedule itself with global pandemics in mind. So what can you do about it?

The answer is simple: visit a chiropractor!

They may be small, but trigger points can cause a lot of pain.

Find out why and how trigger point massage can provide lasting relief.

You’re rubbing a sore muscle and suddenly flinch in pain. Ouch! Why does that one tiny spot hurt so much?

Chances are, you’ve developed a trigger point.

Luckily, trigger point massage is a simple, non-invasive way to release those tight spots and alleviate your pain.

Pain is pain, right? Does it matter who treats it?

Let’s compare a chiropractor vs. physical therapist to help you decide which is best for you.

That car accident did a number on your body. Sore back, whiplash, herniated discs…you’re in a lot of pain. So what can you do about it?

When it comes to healing from a car accident or sports injury, you have a few options. You can see a traditional doctor for a prescription (and risk any number of unpleasant side effects) or see a physical therapist.

Or would a chiropractor be better?

Is there really a difference? When it comes down to chiropractor vs. physical therapist, which one is the best choice to help you recover from your injuries?



Whiplash is a common car accident injury, but the pain can feel far from ordinary.

Get real, lasting relief with medical massage for whiplash and other accident injuries.

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries resulting from car accidents.

While your seat belt keeps your torso relatively stationary during an accident, your head and neck are not so protected. The sudden stop as you collide with another object “whips” your head and neck back and forth, stretching those muscles, tendons, and ligaments beyond what they are used to.

While the injury itself might be localized to the neck area, the pain of whiplash and other car accident injuries is certainly not confined to a single location. This can make it difficult to diagnose (and therefore, properly treat) your car accident injuries with traditional medicine.
