Chiropractic Care After An Auto-Accident

Whiplash

whiplash accident injuriesEven if your vehicle sustained little or no damage as the result of an accident, you may still have injured yourself. Emergency room personnel may determine that you are unhurt if you have not broken any bones, but damage to your soft tissue, damage to the nerves in your neck, or lower back trauma may have occurred. One common condition associated with auto accidents is whiplash. This can occur when the neck is subjected to a rapid back and forth motion, such as what happens to the neck during a rear-end collision. Indications of whiplash include:

  • Neck stiffness and pain that worsens with movement
  • A loss of the range of motion in your neck
  • Headaches, commonly starting at the base of the skull
  • Tenderness or pain in your arms, legs, or upper back
  • A tingling sensation or numbness in your arms
  • Blurred vision, dizziness, and/or fatigue
