If you have just experienced a car accident or had one in the past that led to chronic pain,  there is help through chiropractic treatments.  Dr. Simon Agger regularly works with clients who need relief from the often life altering symptoms of neck injuries due to car accidents.

Signs and symptoms of a whiplash injury to the spine are many:

-Headaches, nausea or brain fog.

-Pain with chewing, swallowing, opening/closing mouth
