What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a condition that occurs when the head and neck experience a sudden, forceful back-and-forth motion, typically caused by a sudden impact or acceleration-deceleration event. It commonly occurs in car accidents, particularly rear-end collisions, but can also result from sports injuries, physical assaults, or falls. Whiplash is characterized by a range of symptoms, including neck pain, stiffness, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and difficulty in neck movement. In some cases, individuals may also experience shoulder or back pain, tingling or numbness in the arms, and cognitive or psychological symptoms such as memory problems or mood changes. The severity and duration of symptoms can vary widely from person to person. Whiplash is usually treated with a combination of pain medication, physical therapy, exercises, and self-care measures, aiming to alleviate pain, restore range of motion, and promote healing.


How can Veeva help?

Going to a chiropractor for whiplash after being in a car accident is not uncommon. Whiplash is responsible for a wide variety of injuries including:
Most of these injuries result from misalignments of ligaments, discs, or joints in the neck, and may include a spine fracture. Sometimes the effects of whiplash are not felt until much later, but a chiropractor can detect early damage from whiplash and keep smaller neck injuries from becoming chronic conditions. A chiro will also ensure you do not reinjure your neck while healing from whiplash.


Common Treatments for Whiplash

Neck pain normally subsides within a few days or weeks, but you shouldn’t wait that long to get a consultation for your neck pain because in many cases, going to a chiropractor for a neck adjustment early on will give you the best results.
Preventative chiropractic therapy is key. Our treatment process begins with a consultation and examination to explore your medical history, assess your current health condition, and address any questions or concerns you may have.
