Which symptoms occur from whiplash injury depend on how the injury was sustained.  
Often times, the symptoms do not appear until days, weeks or even months after an
accident.  Chiropractic treatment has a long history of success with whiplash injury
and its long-term ramifications.  Spinal manipulation will relieve pinched nerves and
constriction of blood vessels by correcting spinal misalignments and returning the
normal cervical curve.

It's always a wise choice to have a chiropractic examination following an automobile
accident. Don't delay in getting treatment for Whiplash injury.
