Accident Injury, whiplash, and Chiropractic Care
Accident injuries occur each and every day across the country and not surprisingly chiropractic care can help quite substantially. This is especially true when an injury involves something known as whiplash. Whiplash results in more than just a simple pain in the neck. It can result in muscles becoming torn, pinched nerves and even damaged ligaments. Ongoing back problems and spasms can also result from severe whiplash. As an added concern, whiplash can cause chronic lasting problems that are painful and debilitating.
Serious Injuries That Are Hard To Detect
When whiplash goes untreated, it can cause long-term problems that can change one’s life dramatically. One of the biggest problems associated with whiplash is that many people make an error in thinking that they have not sustained an injury after having been an automobile accident. In truth, whiplash and other similar types of injuries may not surface for days, weeks and months or perhaps years. Even a mild fender bender can produce serious injuries that are hard to detect. Varying degrees of force during an impact can result in so many different types of injuries. Most importantly, as mentioned earlier, whiplash can occur in even a mild fender bender.
Ringing Ears To Persistent Neck Pain
Those who experience no pain following an automobile accident should still visit with a chiropractic care provider or other medical professional as soon as possible. Never assume that because there is no pain that there is no injury. Whiplash is a serious concern that can result in ongoing headaches, pain in the shoulders, dizziness and insomnia. Other symptoms include everything from ringing ears to persistent neck pain and limited mobility. Misaligned vertebrae in the back and neck can also be directly attributed to whiplash.
