INJURIES / WHIPLASH
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know last year in New Hanover County alone there were over 247,000 Car Accidents? Yes, 247,000! The typical EMS response time to the scene of your accident is around 9 minutes. If you are transported to the hospital expect another 41 minutes. The next step is a long wait in your typical Emergency Room with a flood of patients, while you wait and wait in pain!
How easy would it be for your injuries to go misdiagnosed, un-diagnosed, or even worse IGNORED in a rush of minutes? Every second counts, the correct diagnosis and treatment opportunities can prevent a LIFETIME of pain, suffering, and injuries. At Graybar Chiropractic Centers, we understand that managing car repairs can be stressful, but receiving personal healing and the appropriate care should not be.
If you are a resident of Clinton, Wallace, or Wilmington NC suffering from back pain or other pain resulting from an auto accident injury, our comprehensive rehabilitative treatment is available at your nearest Graybar Chiropractic Center.
How do you know if you are injured?
Typically, you will not know; Symptoms of WHIPLASH may be delayed for up to 3 days (72 hrs.) or more after the initial trauma. Clinical studies also have found that as little as 6-8mph impact can be sufficient to produce whiplash injuries in some cases.
People who experience whiplash may develop one or more of the following symptoms:
· Severe chronic shoulder and neck pain
· Ringing in the ears
· Blurry vision
· Severe headaches
· Concussion like symptoms
· Sleep difficulties
· Memory problems
· Difficulty with focus and concentration
