What Is Whiplash?
When the neck is “whipped” front to back rapidly it creates a condition called whiplash. It has acute pain and limited movement of the neck as the fallout. During the event causing whiplash, the muscles and ligaments are stretched further than normal, creating tears or sprains that cause the pain and discomfort. While this is most commonly an auto accident injury, it might be from theme park rides and anything that gives that back and forth motion in a violent style.
Symptoms of Whiplash
Whiplash symptoms include dizziness, vertigo, sudden fatigue, difficulty concentrating, neck stiffness, neck pain, blurry vision, arm pain, upper back pain, shoulder pain, and back of the head headaches. These may not be felt by all persons, but these are symptoms that might be seen in whiplash cases.
Chiropractic Care for Whiplash
Chiropractic care treatment options for whiplash can be spinal manipulation, massage therapy, and corrective exercises, just to name a few.
Spinal manipulations, or adjustments, can help ease the neck joints back into alignment and help get everything back into proper positioning. You may need several manipulations to get the neck back in proper position. These may help the headaches and the stiffness that often comes with whiplash cases.
Massage therapy can be relaxing and help get you pain relief. This can help ease pain that can come from tight muscles and help increase circulation, which might help healing.
Corrective exercises can help to strengthen weakens muscles and help increase circulation which may help speed up healing. Corrective exercises can also help prevent you from getting injured again as your muscles may be stronger and may help your body be more resistant to trauma.
