Understanding Whiplash and Chiropractic Care

Whiplash is common, but often goes undetected.

What is whiplash?

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries to result from an automobile accident. This injury occurs during the impact when your neck is forcibly “whipped” back and forth or side-to-side beyond its normal range of motion. This sudden and violent thrust can severely damage the connective tissues and muscles in the upper back and neck, leading to neck pain, back pain, headaches, shoulder pain and changes in cognitive behavior. One interesting thing about whiplash, especially with low speed impacts, is that the pain may take hours or even several days to start. This is why we urge anyone who has recently been in a car crash, a motorcycle accident, or any other accident, even if it seemed minor, to come in for a consultation and examination as soon as possible.

Why is chiropractic care important for whiplash?

If you think that you may have had a whiplash injury, you need to be examined by a chiropractor that specializes in whiplash as soon as possible. It is very important to seek treatment from a doctor who understands the complexities of whiplash injuries and who knows how to treat the condition properly. All too often patients are told that they only need to take pain medications for a short period of time and their symptoms will go away on their own. Often this is not the case, and, unfortunately, injured people do not get the proper care right after their injury, when the right treatment is most critical.

A chiropractic physician is the best option for treatment of acute or chronic whiplash trauma. The chiropractic approach appropriately addresses the damage that occurs to the tissues, and is more likely to result in a good outcome. Our qualified chiropractic doctors will refer you to any specialists that may be needed.
