Car Accident Chiropractor

Car accidents occur frequently in Kansas City and this can produce many problems for those involved.  We see many patients in our Overland Park and Lenexa clinics that have experienced an unfortunate situation like a motor vehicle accident.  Whether it is a high speed car accident on I-69 or a minor low speed collision on Metcalf Boulevard, it can produce damage and pain to our body.  It is important to know how to properly take care of our bodies, just like we naturally take care of our cars.  Many different conditions can arise from car accidents, with the most common being whiplash.  Whiplash is produced when a head is suddenly moved backwards and forwards or side to side.  This produces sprains and strains to our ligaments and muscles of the neck and upper back.
