Chiropractic Care for Whiplash

Results of Whiplash

Every 14 seconds, someone in the US is injured by a car accident. If you’ve had a wreck or fender-bender, you may walk away without any apparent injuries. However, many auto accident injuries may go undetected for days, weeks or even months following the accident. Eventually symptoms may start to develop.

Even if the impact seemed mild, you may have a whiplash injury. Most people involved in an automobile accident do. Your head “whips” forward (hyperflexion) and then backwards (hyperextension) or vice versa. When this occurs, tendons, ligaments and muscles that protect and cushion the spine can become damaged – as well as injuring discs and the spine itself. When tissues are stretched or torn, the spine becomes significantly less stable. If you have suffered a whiplash injury, it is vital to seek whiplash treatment immediately as many times people who have been involved in an accident don't even realize they have received a whiplash injury until weeks or months later when the problem becomes persistent and leads to other issues. Don’t let it come to that! Allow us to give you a thorough examination and x-rays to determine the severity of your injuries.

What are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

Whiplash injuries can range from mild to very severe. You may have whiplash if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder, upper back, and arm pain
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Pain when turning the head
  • Inability to move or turn the head fully
  • Dizziness
  • Tiredness
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms, hands, and fingers
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Depression

As you can see there are a wide range of symptoms and not all of them may be immediately traceable to whiplash. If you have recently been injured it is important to get your spine checked as soon as possible. The sooner that you start treating the issue the less chance you have of it developing into a long-term problem. We at Washington Chiropractic take automobile accidents seriously, that is why we have a policy that injuries due to auto accidents are seen the same day!
