Whiplash injuries to the head and neck

If you have been involved in a car accident, whiplash injuries need to be taken very seriously. Because symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or months to fully manifest, it is easy to be fooled into thinking that you are not as injured as you really are.

Too often people don't seek treatment following a car accident because they don't feel that hurt. By far, the most common injury to the neck is a whiplash injury.Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head, either backward, forward, or sideways, that results in the damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back.

Unfortunately, by the time more serious complications develop, some of the damage from the injury may have become permanent. Numerous studies have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, roughly half of them state that they still suffer with symptoms from their injuries.

"I had back and neck injuries due to a car wreck (Cervical spine fusion surgery). After treatment with Dr. Dirks, I feel much better !!!  The services are great.  Dr. Dirks is easy to talk to and doesn't mind explaining what services he'll provide and how these services will help a patient.  The "Ladies" of Dirks Chiropractic are exceptional, always with a smile and very professional".

"I was in a car accident with my wife and was treated at Dirks Chiropractic in Winterville. Dr Dirks uses relaxation therapy in the form of simply asking you the right questions and takes the "awe" out of the "Dr and client relationship" which causes a more professional but yet a more trusting friend type of caring. I recommend Dr Dirks to all."
