Treating a Whiplash Injury

Whiplash Injury is a common type of car accident injury that is sustained when the head is forcefully thrown backward, then forward. These movements cause the ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves of the neck to become hyperextended and possibly torn, resulting in symptoms such as neck pain and nausea. Since the symptoms of whiplash may not be apparent right away, it’s best to see a chiropractor as soon as possible after the accident.

As you’ll learn when you watch this video, a chiropractor may recommend that you undergo digital X-rays to evaluate the extent of the damage. Chiropractors can also provide gentle neck manipulation, recommend cold and heat therapy, and refer you to physical therapy.
