Preventing Injury with Head Restraints

Woman suffering from neck pain

Auto injuries are an expensive and painful problem around the world. Experts estimate that we spend over $30 billion per year in treating the pain and disability that can result from a rear-end crash. We see many of these cases each year in our Commerce Twp, MI office.

Most people don't realize that many of these types of injuries can be prevented by properly adjusting your head restraint. Research done on live traffic shows that only about 10% of people have a head restraint that's set up to prevent injury from a rear-end crash.

If you've already been injured in a crash, it's important to get treatment right away. The staff at Bay Pointe Chiropractic has helped many people recover from such injuries. Give our Commerce Twp office a call today at (248) 363-1775 to learn more or to make an appointment.
