Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained while playing a sport or during an auto accident. This injury frequently occurs as a result of the neck moving back and forth rapidly. For example, if you are in a rear-end car accident, your head may suddenly lurch back and forth violently. The pain may slowly manifest days after the accident, causing significant discomfort. Our team at Robin Wellness Center in Robbinsdale, MN, treats a variety of whiplash cases. If you are unsure if you are experiencing whiplash, schedule an appointment with one of our chiropractors for a diagnosis and treatment.
While whiplash is frequently associated with auto accidents, this injury occurs as a result of other scenarios as well. They include:
- Physical abuse
- Physical assault
- Sports accidents
No matter the cause of your symptoms, you need medical attention to ensure that you have the resources you need to heal.
Some people experience the symptoms of whiplash immediately after an injury, but others do not see the symptoms for days or weeks. The symptoms of whiplash include:
- Neck pain
- Muscle stiffness
- Reduced range of motion
- Shoulder pain
- Upper back pain
- Arm pain
- Blurry vision
- Difficulty sleeping
- Auditory disturbances
- Mood shifts
Whiplash presents several different symptoms. If you experience a medical emergency, like confusion or intense nausea, get immediate help as these symptoms are not to be taken lightly.
Many people with whiplash do not realize that they could see improvements in their condition in a matter of weeks. Our chiropractors will provide a treatment plan that goes beyond treating the symptoms with pain medication. We treat the root cause of your neck pain and the other complications of whiplash.
