What Causes Whiplash?

Whiplash is a generic term used when the neck is unexpectedly jolted from one direction to the other. Whiplash is most commonly seen in people involved in motor vehicle accidents, but it can also occur from falls, sports injuries, work injuries, and other incidents. During whiplash, the head is lifted up from the upper-cervical spine; this creates strain in the region just the below the skull.

How King Chiropractic Clinic Can Help

Many common symptoms of whiplash, such as blurred vision and nausea, do not persist long after the initial injury. However, if symptoms of whiplash persist, chiropractic therapy can help resolve pain from the whiplash injury. Every case of whiplash is unique, and prescribed its own treatment plan. Often times, spinal manipulation and muscle relaxation are used to effectively treat whiplash.
