There are between 7-8 million car crashes on U.S. roads and highways every year. This results in an estimated 3 million whiplash injuries. About half of those people with whiplash injuries, or 1.5 million every year, will suffer long-term symptoms. 10% of those injured or approximately 300,000 people will become disabled every year!

Whiplash is often defined as a strain/sprain, and dismissed in the E.R. as something that will get better on its own. The statistics above prove otherwise. At Bay Injury & Rehab, the top St. Petersburg Chiropractic office, we strive to help you through your recovery with a personalized treatment plan and easy access to all our healthcare professionals.
To understand the injury you’ve suffered, it’s imperative that a thorough history, exam, and appropriate diagnostic testing (X-rays, MRI’s, etc.) are performed in a timely manner.
