I Was Diagnosed with Whiplash

I was driving down the road a few months ago, just listening to my music and thinking about what I needed to get at the store, when another car hit me. I didn’t even know what was happening, it was over that fast. I was so thankful that I didn’t bring my two daughters with me because it could have been so much worse. As it was, I was able to get out, but a tow truck had to come get my car. I didn’t even consider contacting a Redding chiropractor until the next day because I didn’t think that I was hurt that much.

I did have a few scrapes on me, and I had a mild headache, but that was normal. I was taken to the hospital for observation, but I was released within a few hours. My husband had instructions on what to watch for, but I didn’t have any other pain in my head after the pain pills I was given. I did start to develop a bad pain in my neck though the following day. The doctor at the hospital did tell me that this was possible, but I had no idea that it would hurt as much as it did.

I contacted a chiropractor not too far from me and explained what had happened, and they urged me to come right in. Once there, they explained all about whiplash, and then they did an examination. They came up with a treatment plan that involved me going back several times. They even handled all of the paperwork with the insurance company, which was a relief because I had never been involved in anything like this before. I went back several times for treatment, and I am doing much better now. I am just glad I knew where to go to get the help I needed!
