Chiropractic Promotes Auto Injury Improvement

Chiropractic Promotes: Whiplash-associated injuries can occur in a variety of settings where any form of accelerated motion may cause the head and neck to jerk back-and-forth with tremendous force against the entire body. Trauma from a slip and fall or an accident from sports or physical activities have been demonstrated to result in neck injuries such as whiplash. However, automobile accident injuries are the most prevalent cause of whiplash-associated injuries.

The sudden thrust of the head can damage or injure the complex structures which surround the cervical spine, often leading to the severe irritation and inflammation of the tendons and ligaments in the neck. Also, other tissues, as well as the tendons and ligaments of the cervical spine, may become overly stretched and torn.

A neck injury can be identified if the person involved experiences symptoms such as:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Worsening pain with movement
  • Loss of range of motion in the neck
  • Headaches originating at the base of the skull
  • Tenderness or pain in the shoulder, upper back, and arms
  • Tingling or numbness in the upper extremities
  • Fatigue and dizziness.
  • Other symptoms include:
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Memory problems
  • Anxiety and depression

While these are some of the most frequently reported symptoms associated with a whiplash injury, these symptoms may also suggest the presence of another type of injury or condition.

Therefore, it’s fundamental to seek immediate medical attention from a qualified auto accident injury specialist who can accurately identify a whiplash or neck injury and follow with the recommended treatment to eliminate the painful symptoms and restore the individual’s overall health and wellness.
