    Whiplash

    Whiplash is a common term used to describe a neck injury or a sudden distortion of the neck.

    In most cases, whiplash is a result of an auto accident when an individual was either hit from the front or rear. Common symptoms of whiplash include pain from muscle tension or a tear in the soft tissue. Depending on the severity of the injury, a person may experience nerve or disc damage, ruptures of the ligaments, or even a fracture in the neck.

    Chiropractic care is the best option for people suffering from whiplash. Some may make a whiplash injury seem minor, but in actuality it is very important to have taken care of right away. The neck is the very beginning of the spine; if there is an injury, misalignment, or a subluxation in the neck, it can cause the entire body to not work properly. A chiropractor can remove the subluxation and correct the misalignment so that the person suffering can begin to heal and feel better again. Auto accidents, no matter how minor, can cause a misalignment. Every person involved should see a chiropractor to help correct any issues that may cause severe problems later.
