Car Accident? Chiropractor Near Marianna, FL Discusses Accident Recovery

Been in a car accident? A chiropractor near Marianna, FL discusses symptoms and treatments.  Does your neck and  back hurt after an accident? With an estimated 3 millions car accidents a year, many people suffer from some sort of residual neck or back pain.  Most of us think the neck soreness will go away especially with ice.  However, after a car wreck the body releases chemical endorphins which block the real damage done to the spine and surrounding muscles and masks the injuries for up to 2-8 weeks later.  That's why it is so important to seek a personal injury doctor's help as soon as possible to get an initial exam and begin the healing process.
