If you have been involved in a car or truck accident, whiplash and other auto injuries need to be taken very seriously. Auto accident injuries are one of the leading causes of spinal and whiplash injuries.Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head, either backward, forward, or sideways, that results in the damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back. These type of injuries, whether they occur as a result of an auto accident or another type of trauma, must be treated properly, or they can lead to chronic pain. Fortunately, undergoing chiropractic treatments and evaluation can help relieve the following symptoms, often without the use of pain medications or surgery.
Neck pain or stiffness
Arm pain or numbness
Middle back pain
Low back pain
Decreased range of motion in neck, shoulders, arms or back
Numerous studies have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, roughly half of them state that they still suffer with symptoms from their injuries.
