Effective chiropractic treatment for whiplash injuries and related disorders

It only takes a split second for a car to unexpectedly hit you from behind, or to get blindsided by a tackle, or to slip on a slick surface. Any sudden blow or impact to your body can cause whiplash/neck injuries.

Your body is pretty tough and most parts can handle a lot of abuse, but your neck is particularly vulnerable to injury from impacts to your body. The relatively heavy weight of your head puts a lot of strain on the neck when you receive a blow to the body. Even the sudden recovery of your balance after slipping on a wet floor or ice can throw your head around and strain your neck.

The sinister part is that you may not notice symptoms at first. It can take days, weeks, and in some cases years for symptoms to manifest themselves. Too often car accident victims do not seek help until more serious complications develop. Even after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims some 45% report they still suffer with symptoms two years later. Research shows that treatment outcomes improve and pain relief is the greatest the earlier you seek medical help. Research also proves that Chiropractic therapy is one of the only proven remedies for whiplash injury.

WHIPLASH SYMPTOMS

  • Neck Pain
  • Headache
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Low Back Pain
  • Difficulty Swallowing
  • Blurred Vision
  • Ringing in the Ears
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue or Weakness
  • Irritability
  • Dizziness
  • Vertigo (sense of rotation)

So don’t wait. Even if you feel normal after an accident, with no symptoms, you should be thoroughly examined. Worse, whiplash injuries can still be causing symptoms after five years, and in the long run, can cause secondary problems such as osteoarthritis. This delay in symptoms and the long term consequences make it very important to get examined after any accident. Call our office for an appointment.
