What are the symptoms of whiplash?
Whiplash is often associated with stiffness or severe pain in your neck, but it can also involve headaches, blurred vision, jaw pain, nausea, cognitive issues, or even dizziness.
Why does a car accident cause whiplash?
The extreme motion and force of the car accident can cause a misalignment in the cervical spine and soft tissue damage. While an acceleration-deceleration accident often involves some degree of whiplash, you may not feel the full effects until hours or even days after the accident.
What can car accident chiropractor treatments do for your accident symptoms?
Our chiropractic care and treatment offer relief from the pain and discomfort associated with your car crash. You can easily resolve the visible signs of the accident. The cuts and bruises typically disappear with time, but the numbness, stiffness, severe pain, inflammation, and muscle tension may require adjustment and/or other treatment options to speed your healing.
What if you do not experience any symptoms?
Every car accident is different. With some incidents, you may not immediately feel the pain and discomfort. That does not mean that you have not been affected by the accident. The symptoms of whiplash can take days to appear and it is likely that your whiplash is not the only pain you're experiencing. Our treatment options are designed to relieve your pain, improve your overall health and wellness, break down the scar tissue, and speed the healing process.
