Causes and Symptoms of Whiplash

Whiplash is a condition that occurs when the neck jerks forward and then backward, causing little tears in the muscles and ligaments of the neck. There are many reasons this may happen, including:

  • Auto accident injuries

  • Sports injuries

  • Occupational injuries

  • Personal injuries

  • Slips, trips and falls

Many patients don't realize that they have whiplash when it first occurs. This is because the symptoms of whiplash can come on slowly over a period of days or weeks. Some of the most common symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Dizziness

  • Headache

  • Pain in the shoulders, back and neck

  • Muscle stiffness

  • Limited range of motion

  • Tenderness in the injured areas

  • Insomnia

  • Irritability

While the patient may not recognize the symptoms of whiplash right away, a chiropractor can use special tools and training to identify whiplash more quickly. This is why it's important to see a chiropractor if you have recently been in an accident, even if you don't believe you've been injured.

Treatment of Whiplash

There are many ways that treatment from your chiropractic clinic can help you recover from whiplash. Below are some of the most common techniques we use to treat whiplash at Back & Neck Care Chiropractic:

  • Spinal adjustment

    Spinal adjustment is a technique we use to realign the vertebrae of the spine, eliminate subluxations and improve communication between the brain and the rest of the body. If you've been injured, spinal adjustment will help you restore your back and neck to normal functionality.
  • Massage therapy

    Massage therapy is a treatment we use to improve blood flow to injured areas and improve flexibility.
  • Acupuncture

    Acupuncture is an ancient system of stimulating trigger points to heal the body. Our acupuncturist works with whiplash patients to restore their spine and neck to good health.
