What are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

When you’re involved in a car accident that causes your head and neck to fly forward, it can result in damage to your muscles and ligaments. This causes neck pain and stiffness which are usually associated with whiplash. However, whiplash also results in cervical spinal misalignments including; dislocated vertebrae and herniated discs. These problems put pressure on your the nerves that branch off from your spinal column and cause bigger problems. Resulting symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Vertigo,
  • Disorientation or cognition issues
  • Nausea
  • Problems seeing or hearing
  • Insomnia
  • Arm or hand pain, numbness or tingling
  • Pain in your shoulder

How Does Chiropractic Care Provide Whiplash Treatment?

Our chiropractic care involves spinal adjustments that return vertebrae and discs to the correct positions. By restoring vertebrae and discs to the correct positions, trapped nerve roots are released which results in pain-free function. Massage therapy can also be used to relieve inflammation, pain and swelling in your soft tissues. Finally, we may also recommend corrective exercises and other types of physical therapy to help you regain your full range of motion and strengthen damaged or atrophied muscles.
