Chiropractors treat several types of injuries, such as: neck pain, back pain, headaches, etc… Some of these injuries are from repetitive use while other injuries are traumatic. Did you know that a lot of chiropractors treat injuries from auto accidents?
According to Traffic Collision Data reported by the Los Angeles Department of Transportation for the City of Los Angeles, in the year 2002, 45% of all traffic collisions resulted in property damage only,compared to 55% that resulted in some kind of injury. So over half of the collisions resulted in someone possibly needing the services of a chiropractic physician.
Unfortunately there were 166 fatal injuries in Los Angeles in 2002. But with 50,317 collisions reported, that is a very small percentage. All of the rest were injuries that needed some sort of medical treatment. If you have sustained injuries from an auto accident I suggest seeking a chiropractic evaluation immediately.
