Chiropractic treatment is one of the best types of care that you can get if you have been in a car accident. The force of the impact of being rear ended causes your head to violently move backwards and then forwards. This is commonly known as whiplash. The bones, tendons, and nerves can all be damaged from this.
A side impact collision does much the same thing only this time the force is from the side and the neck is forced at high speed from side to side. Again this can do a lot of damage to your neck and cause a lot of pain for a long time.
As chiropractors we take x-rays to see where the damage is then use various techniques to restore your movement and get rid of the pain
