Whiplash is defined as a neck injury caused by over-extending or flexing the neck. This can happen during a car accident, sports injury, roller coasters, or a fall. Symptoms usually include neck pain, headache, dizziness, fatigue, irritability, shoulder and low back pain. More serious manifestations are difficulty swallowing, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, nausea and weakness. Although most persons begin to notice symptoms immediately following a trauma, they can be slow to develop and begin several weeks after the injury. If left untreated, whiplash can result in chronic and recurring problems, such as arthritis, headache, and stiffness. Chiropractic is very effective at treating whiplash so that that your recovery time is minimized. The goal is to return you to your active lifestyle as soon as possible.
