Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash

Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash

One of the most common injuries people sustain in car accidents is whiplash. Back pain after a car accident, particularly in the neck and shoulder area, are common symptoms of this condition. If you think you're suffering from whiplash, it's a good idea to see a chiropractor after a car accident. Although it might not seem like the most serious thing you’re dealing with at first, the pain and complications of whiplash can have an ongoing impact on your life going forward, and that’s why it’s so important to seek prompt chiropractic care for your injury.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a term used to describe injuries resulting from the rapid movement of your head backward and forward, which is precisely what happens when you’re involved in certain types of motor vehicle collisions. This kind of auto accident injury often causes symptoms that can range from mild to severe, and that may not be immediately felt. These include:

  • Pain or tingling in neck
  • Reduced range of motion or stiffness in neck
  • Pain in shoulder and upper back
  • Pain or weakness radiating down arm
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Neck instability

It can take a day or more for you to begin to feel the symptoms of whiplash, and the sooner you’re evaluated by an experienced chiropractor after a car accident, the better your chances of limiting pain and achieving a full recovery.
