After being involved in an automobile accident, spinal injuries, such as whiplash, can commonly occur. While it’s important to seek immediate treatment for any possible injuries or complications, exercising can also be a treatment option for recovering from minor auto injuries.

A study including 216 individuals with chronic whiplash associated disorders and symptoms found that neck exercises conducted by a trained therapist increased the chances of recovery in these individuals. The study also showed that after six months, 39-44% of the people participating in specific exercise groups had a significant reduction in pain.

As a matter of fact, individuals who have experienced injuries as a result of an automobile accident can greatly benefit from exercise treatments recommended by a medical professional, such as a chiropractor or physiotherapist. Chiropractic doctors can also use spinal adjustments and manual manipulation to help enhance the effectiveness of exercise therapies and speed up the rehabilitation process of whiplash or other spine-related injuries. Patients with chronic pain due to a previous whiplash injury can also benefit from chiropractic care and exercise therapies. Depending on the individual's severity of the injury, following the proper exercises recommended by a chiropractor or other medical specialist is important in order to avoid further injuries. Seeking chiropractic treatment after suffering an auto collision is essential to restore an individual’s overall health and wellness as well as to reduce symptoms of pain and discomfort in the future.
