Some car accident injuries, like whiplash and herniated discs, tend to have symptoms that worsen with time.
Our Franklin, TN chiropractic care for car accident injuries usually starts with chiropractic adjustments. These are designed to push your vertebrae or extremity joint back into its proper position and maximize its range of motion, which helps lower inflammation as well as other symptoms.
