Seattle Chiropractor helps people with whiplash using the gentle and precise Atlas Orthogonal adjustments

The Journal of Whiplash and Related Disorders, a peer reviewed publication, documents the effectiveness of Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic in the care of post whiplash patients. The entire research article is available as a pdf file.

Whiplash Facts:

There are 7-8 million motor vehicle accidents (MVA) in the U.S. per year
3 million of those involve whiplash injury
42,000 are killed each year
50% of those injured have long term symptoms
10% of those injured become disabled
45% of chronic neck pain sufferers attribute problem to past MVA

Patients in auto accidents that suffer from a whiplash injury are likely to have significant injuries and often long-term complications. The most common symptoms of a whiplash injury are neck pain and headaches.  Often pain radiates into the upper and middle back and shoulders.  Some injuries are more severe and can cause spinal cord, brain stem and vertebral arteries damage.  Without proper treatment many people who suffer whiplash injuries do not return to their normal level of productivity for many years and some become permanently disabled.

The Atlas Orthogonal adjustment is safe, effective and backed by over 30 years of research.  It helps correct one of the more common spinal problems that result from trauma, the atlas subluxation.
