Whiplash Causes and Treatment
Whiplash is a common injury that can occur from an automobile accident, or even from a rollercoaster at an amusement park. Whiplash results when the muscles and ligaments (soft tissues) of the neck extend beyond their natural range-of-motion. Whiplash may cause pain and discomfort after impact, but it can also present no symptoms at all. If you’ve experience neck trauma of any kind, visit one of our doctors at Back to Basics Chiropractic to discuss your treatment options.
Symptoms associated with whiplash include but are not limited to neck pain and stiffness, headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, and/or constant fatigue. Symptoms are not always present which is why it’s important to receive a proper diagnosis. Treatment for whiplash will depend on the severity of the condition but methods may include massage, electrical muscle stimulation, or a spinal adjustment.
