What are the effects of Whiplash?

The tissue and spine near a person's neck can experience severe irritation in many ways when Whiplash happens during a car accident, abuse from physical harm, or sports like football.

  • Damaged bones in the vertebrae
  • Nerve irritation and damage
  • Misalignment of vertebrae in the spine area

What are the symptoms of Whiplash?

Whiplash has a wide range of injuries that can be identified as mild to severe. The common cause of serious whiplash injuries is having your car headrest too low. There could be tissue damage or broken bones when a bad collision occurs because of a lowered headrest. In cases like this, asking help from a chiropractor is essential to have a complete examination or conduct x-rays when needed. In a situation of a mild collision or crash, it's possible to experience Whiplash if you feel these symptoms:

  • Headaches

  • Pain with mobility of the neck
  • Numbing or tingling down your arms

It may need more follow-up treatments even after a 'good-to-go’ approval from the doctor. After the injury, it's crucial to get your spine checked, too.
