29 Oct How to know if the Recent Fender Bender left you with Whiplash Injury?
An auto accident is not only traumatic for your emotionally but also physically, however harmless it may have seemed.
In a car accident, tons of force can impact your body, tightening your muscles, pulling and twisting your tendons and ligaments and even breaking bones.
The impact and muscle tension can cause a serious injury known as Whiplash. If you have been in an accident recently, you need to see a chiropractor for any signs of whiplash and treatment.
The sudden movement of the neck at the time of impact can cause serious damage to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones of the neck.
One or more of the following symptoms indicate whiplash –
- Neck and shoulder pain and stiffness
- blurred vision
- ringing in the ears
- dizzy spells that come and go
- headaches beginning at the top of the neck and the base of the skull
- fatigue that develops after the accident
If you think you may have whiplash, consult an experienced chiropractor who can put together a gentle, holistic, chiropractic treatment plan specifically for you. Chiropractic treatments involve manual adjustments of your spine to restore it to its natural alignment and accelerate natural healing.
