Whiplash Hurts More Than You Think

I knew I needed to look for Oklahoma City chiropractors on the first day I moved into the city. I was in the process of moving into my new apartment and took off in my car to find some things at a nearby store when a little old lady in a huge boat of car rear ended me on the street. Within seconds of the impact I just knew I was going to have whiplash. It’s weird when you feel your head move in such a violent motion. The first thought you have is how can my head move in that way, quickly followed by I’m going to have whiplash.

The weird thing about it is that you don’t feel it right away, or at least I didn’t. My neck felt sort of strange and tingly, but the pain wasn’t really there. It was later that night, when I was moving furniture into my new apartment, that it hit me all at once. A crushing pain in my neck washed over me, soon followed by a horrible headache that I couldn’t get rid of with aspirin. I just stopped what I was doing and laid down to try and grab some sleep.

The first thing I did in the morning is look up a chiropractor on my phone. I found one with great ratings and called an explained the situation. They got me right in and the chiropractor said they could tell just by looking at me that I had severe neck pain.They got right to work on my neck and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think it wouldn’t hurt. I braced for severe pain and instead felt the pain vanish as they did something to my neck. It was gone in seconds and I don’t even need to return for further treatment!
