Although whiplash is a fairly common injury, most people ignore the symptoms, thinking they’ll eventually subside on their own. Minor cases of whiplash may cause little pain or harm. If you’re experiencing severe discomfort or pain, come to Clayton Chiropractic for an examination. We’ll help you determine the source of your pain and recommend chiropractic options for treatment. The following FAQs can help you learn more about whiplash causes, symptoms, and treatment.
Whiplash occurs when your head is violently thrown forward and back by an unexpected impact such as an auto accident, slip and fall, sports collision, etc. This abrupt head motion can strain tissues and muscles in your neck, producing pain. Whiplash symptoms can range from mild pain to throbbing head and neck pain with every movement of your neck.
Whiplash can result in strained muscles, dislocation of cervical vertebrae, joint and tissue damage, and herniated discs. If discs compress nerves in your spine, it can lead to excruciating pain and loss of mobility.
You may experience neck stiffness, soreness, shoulder pain, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue due to not sleeping well at night. Whiplash can also cause ringing in your ears and visual difficulties.
At Clayton Chiropractic, we use non-invasive, natural techniques to reduce the painful symptoms of whiplash and undo its destructive damage. Through spinal manipulation and adjustments, we can alleviate muscle tension and realign cervical discs and joints that are pinching nerves and causing pain. These techniques will help reduce inflammation, improve flexibility, and restore your range of motion.
The beauty of chiropractic care is that it’s all-natural, non-invasive, and drug-free. There’s no surgery or medications involved in your chiropractic care treatment. At Clayton Chiropractic, we work with your body’s natural healing process to promote pain relief and recovery.
