Treating Symptoms of Whiplash with Chiropractic Care
When you get in a car accident, the first things you typically think about is just how much damage you and your valuables may have been subjected to. Unfortunately, though, the repair work for your car might be the least of your worries if you’ve suffered any whiplash.
Seatbelts are designed to save your life in a crash, but they can do a number on your spinal cord from whiplash after the wreck. You might not manage to notice this damage right away, but the impacts of whiplash can make themselves known days, even weeks after the wreck, leading to long-term problems if you haven’t sought effective whiplash treatment.
What is Whiplash?
As the name implies, whiplash is an injury you get when a part of your body is rammed or jerked by a sudden and sharp force that you are whipped forward or backward. Car wrecks are a classic example, but everything from roller coasters to turning your neck too fast can give you whiplash.
Because your body often goes into shock after a whiplash injury, it’s easy to assume that no lasting damage was done and that you don’t need treatment. However, whiplash injuries often cause structural damage to your ligaments, spinal cord, and soft tissues, and seeking out effective whiplash treatment immediately is the only way to avoid suffering from back pain for months to come.
