Whiplash is a term that describes an injury to the neck that occurs after a motor vehicle accident. The most common type of car accident is the rear impact, and most typically the occupant in a vehicle which gets “rear-ended” is at the greatest risk of injury, including the injury termed whiplash.
Whiplash injuries are often very complex and can cause a variety of related problems including:
One or more joints of the spine may lose its proper resiliency and shock absorption resulting in a restricted range of movement and pain.
A whiplash accident may injure the discs between the bones of the spine leading to small tears. These small tears allow the jelly-like center or nucleus to bulge out causing pressure on delicate, sensitive spinal nerves. These injuries can create pain which radiates from the neck into the arm, and can also cause numbness, tingling and even grip strength and arm weakness.
It is important to seek care from a chiropractor to successfully manage whiplash injury.
If you or your child have been in a car accident and need corrective care (such as treatment for whiplash), the family chiropractors at Hill Family Chiropractic can help!
