Causes and Symptoms of Whiplash
Whiplash is by far the most common auto accident injury we see in our office. It generally occurs at the time of impact with another vehicle or a stationary object. Specifically, whiplash refers to damage that occurs around the ligaments, tendons, and muscles surrounding the upper (cervical) spine when the neck is abruptly forced forward and the lower back stays more-or-less in the same place.
Usually, symptoms of whiplash do not present themselves immediately, leaving many people who have been injured in an auto accident to not realize it right away. Once symptoms do develop (usually after 12-24 hours), they tend to include:
- neck or upper back pain/ache
- neck stiffness
- unexplained headaches or migraines
- numbness or tingling
If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s always a good idea to seek chiropractic care for an evaluation.
How Our Chiropractic Team in Bluffton Can Help
The good news is that if you’ve been injured in an auto accident and are experiencing a neck ache or stiffness, our chiropractic team in Bluffton is here to help. Chiropractic care is ideal for treating whiplash due to the fact that it is non-invasive, holistic, and drug-free. As such, you can find the relief you need from your symptoms without the inherent risks and side effects that can come along with other treatment options.
Furthermore, chiropractic treatment focuses on addressing your pain and symptoms at their source, rather than simply “masking” them with medications that will eventually wear off. Ultimately, our goal with chiropractic service for whiplash is to help you find relief without the need for invasive procedures or dangerous drugs, and to help that relief carry out indefinitely.
The specific chiropractic service we recommend for your whiplash symptoms will vary from one patient to the next. However, we most commonly recommend a treatment known as spinal adjustment, which allows us to manually manipulate the position of the spine to correct alignment problems that often lead to pain following an auto accident. Furthermore, through this treatment and massage therapy, we can help to promote improved blood and oxygen flow around the injured area of your neck. This can stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes, which will help you find relief sooner.
