What Causes Whiplash?

Whiplash is most commonly caused during rear-end collision auto accidents. When a car gets bumped from behind, the head whips backward and then forward. This whipping action can damage soft tissues in the neck, causing pain. Some people feel immediate pain after an accident, but for others, it might not appear for several days. In addition to car crashes, whiplash can happen during collisions on the playing field between football players, or an assault.

What Are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

Here are some symptoms of whiplash:

  • Neck pain that gets worse over time
  • Loss of range of motion in the neck
  • Referred pain in the shoulders, back, or arms
  • Arm tingling or numbness
  • Headaches at the base of the skull
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Tinnitus
  • Insomnia
  • Concentration & memory problems

How an Auto Accident Chiropractor Can Help

Once a chiropractor diagnoses the location and nature of your injury, an individualized treatment plan can be created to help restore your health and range of motion and to help relieve you from the ongoing pain and discomfort. Your treatment plan may include some of the following:

  • Corrective Neck Exercises: Stretching and strength exercises that we can teach you can help increase blood flow to the neck, potentially reducing pain and inflammation.
  • Chiropractic Adjustments: Herniated discs, pinched nerves, and other injuries to the neck can cause severe, ongoing pain. Chiropractic adjustments can help correct these problems without resorting to invasive surgery.
  • Lifestyle Advice: It is possible that your own lifestyle is an obstacle to your healing. A chiropractor on our team can help identify bad habit that may be hurting your ability to heal and recommend ways to help remove them.
