With more and more drivers on the road, accidents are becoming increasingly common.
On average, there are about 15,913 car accidents every single day.
That breaks down to about 11 a minute.
So, by the time you've finished reading these first few sentences, a handful of accidents have occurred.
These aren't all catastrophic, multi-car accidents, that lead to debilitating injuries and death, but they are all accidents none the less.
And anytime you're involved in a car accident; there is a chance for an injury to occur.

We will discuss eight of those exercises below. Remember, always consult your doctor or chiropractor before starting any new exercise routine.
