Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash?
Whiplash can be caused by a variety of reasons. It occurs when there is an impact or blow that results in your head jerking backward or forward that causes strain to your neck. Often associated with auto accidents, this forceful movement stretches and tears the muscles and tendons in your neck causing minor to severe pain. Unfortunately, whiplash injuries often result in disturbances to your daily activities, leading you to seek treatment through a proven program such as chiropractic care.
Whiplash Following an Auto Accidents
While whiplash can be caused by many different forces, one of the most common ways is from an auto accident. Slamming onto your breaks or being hit from behind can cause your head to jerk, causing great injury to your neck. Symptoms include decreased range of motion, stiffness in your neck and tenderness. It is vital that you speak with a medical professional after experiencing an auto accident so they can let you know what to do and what to expect.
