Whiplash, Neck Pain, Neck Ache, Back Pain, Back Ache, Headache, Headaches, Migraine, Migraines, accident, car accident, Neck Injury, Neck Trauma, Sports AccidentA person may leave a car accident with little or no symptoms of whiplash or other damage. However, it is important to understand why and how whiplash happens. It is also vital to know what can occur if whiplash goes untreated.

The term whiplash has to do with the way the neck and head move during an accident. It is similar to a way that a whip cracks mit link. The head moves forward quickly and then backward in a whipping-type motion (side to side motion can have the same effect). The neck has a limited range of motion, therefore, when an accident causes it to move beyond this, whiplash is the end result. Muscles, ligaments, and bones of the neck can all be affected or injured.

Although a person doesn’t feel the effects immediately, he or she may notice some odd symptoms within the next few days or even weeks. The following can be attributed to the accident:

  • Ringing in the ears
  • Dizzy spells
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain

These symptoms can become worse or even develop into more serious things like migraines, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue if left uncared for. So, where is the best place to get help?

Whiplash Symptoms Helped Through Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

Often during whiplash, whether due to a car accident, tripping and falling, or a sporting injury, the bones of the upper neck vertebrae are caused to move out of their proper position. Using a gentle procedure, these bone can be put back into alignment. The muscles, tissues, and ligaments can then begin to repair themselves from damage done by whiplash. This brings the body back into alignment and helps it to perform at its optimum. By keeping the neck bones in alignment, the body works and feels better overall. Many have reported relief from the lasting effects from whiplash.
