Whiplash and Chiropractic

See on Scoop.itAccidents and Injuries

Whiplash is a common term for injury to the neck and head that is caused by a rapid acceleration or deceleration of the head relative to the body. It is commonly called ‘whiplash’ because the most common mechanism of injury during an auto accident is where the sudden stop sends the head into extension and then hyper-flexion, or the exact opposite, flexion and then hyper-extension.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

It is not unheard of to experience a whiplash type injury after an automobile accident. The symptoms for whiplash are often delayed for 24 hours or more but, once present, the pain and discomfort, followed by stiffness and headaches develop, usually within the first few days after injury. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
