Whiplash from Auto Accident

An auto accident can seriously impact one’s health even if the accident is minor. This is because when vehicles collide a powerful force can be exerted on the spine and neck of the accident victims. When this type of force is exerted on the spine and neck a condition known as whiplash usually results. Whiplash is caused by the sudden “snapping” of the neck and head. When the head and neck are violently thrown forward and backward from the force of the collision the soft tissues and discs of the neck and spine can suffer injury. Researchers found in three separate studies that a whiplash event occurs even at slower speeds of 2.5 mph. Because whiplash can cause a variety of symptoms it is imperative that accident victim consult with an auto accident chiropractor.

Pain is not always experienced immediately. Often it takes a 24 hour period for the muscle spasm to increase and the pain to set in. You’re left with a stiff neck, pain and a headache.

In addition to whiplash, victims of automobile accidents often suffer injuries such as: fractures, sprains, strains, cervical radiculopathy, disc injury, dislocation, ligament injuries, thoracic spine injuries, lumbar radiculopathy, and lumbar spine injuries. All of these injuries can cause serious, unrelenting pain for the accident victim. Physicians may prescribe pain medication for these injuries, but the pain medication will only mask the symptoms. An auto accident chiropractor will be able to help individuals treat their injuries and move forward with the healing process.
