Whiplash is a term used to describe the unexpected and rapid movement of the skull forwards and backwards. Whiplash injuries are a nightmare. These injuries are very common in rear-end collision or other types of motor vehicle accidents. Often patients go to the emergency room following an accident. After life threatening conditions have been eliminated, the patient is sent home. What is not addressed in the emergency room is painful soft tissue injury caused by the whiplash. This oversight can leave a person with nagging or even permanent symptoms.

Some of the more common symptoms of whiplash include:

  1. Neck Pain
  2. Low Back Pain
  3. Shoulder Pain
  4. Headaches
  5. Dizziness
  6. Disc Herniation
  7. Numbness

These conditions lead to a number of other problems including Sleep Disturbance and Anxiety. In fact, according to recent statistics, 40% of all people with chronic neck pain can trace the original cause of the problem to a previous whiplash injury.

If you’ve been through any kind of auto accident where you were subjected to a violent jerking of the body or head, you may have suffered a whiplash injury without realizing it. The muscles around the neck and in the back can become traumatically wrenched out of place, and this can cause ongoing pain and discomfort if not addressed properly. Our experts have seen many such cases, and they know exactly what to do to help restore your body to its normal functionality and pain-free state. In many cases, patients don’t feel the effects of whiplash right away, but become troubled by it weeks or even months after the incident.

Let’s break down the bio-mechanical mechanism of a whiplash injury

Learn the source to treat the pain

  1. Affects the ligamentous attachment that connect the bones to one another.
  2. This creates hyper-mobility (too much movement.)
  3. Excessive movement leads to joint dysfunction and often leads to compression of the nerves.
  4. This is what causes the pain and results in premature degeneration of the spine. This can happen in both low and high impact collision.

Symptoms can seem mild at first because of the adrenaline but often get worse over days, weeks, months and even years. I have personally seen cases where the patient had a severe problem following an accident but had little pain. It is important to always get checked following any type of automobile accident. Although it is typical for a patient to be more concerned about their car and/or calling in sick to work, don’t let this be you. GET CHECKED TODAY!
