Whiplash occurs when the neck and head are abruptly forced in opposite directions- most commonly backward, then forward-resulting in extreme stress on the spine. Generally a result from car accidents, whiplash strains the muscles and tendons in your neck, however, it’s possible to not immediately feel the injuries following the incident. Whether the pain results instantaneously or within a couple of days, common symptoms to consider are:
- Decreased range of motion
- Tenderness throughout neck and back
To treat whiplash, our team can combine chiropractic care with massage therapy to help alleviate pain and tension quickly.
