Involved in a Motor Vehicle Collision That Led to Whiplash? Have Our Chiropractor Treat It!
Whiplash is a neck pain condition that can manifest immediately or sometime later after it has occurred. If you are seeking chiropractic care to help alleviate your whiplash, Axiom Injury & Rehab in Carrolton, TX, is able to help. With our innovative techniques, your neck pain will be a thing of the past.
What Is Whiplash?
Whiplash is a neck strain injury that occurs when the head and neck was subjected to a sudden and forceful motion, such as a motor vehicle collision. Although whiplash is not a life-threatening condition, it can still cause enough damage to the neck to lead to prolonged disability.
The Most Common Causes of Whiplash
Though it's most often associated with motor vehicle collisions, whiplash can occur after playing sports, riding a roller coaster, or even during a round of play-fighting. Anything that causes the head and neck to move back and forth in an unexpected manner can jar the body and cause whiplash.
Symptoms of Whiplash
Chronic neck pain is the most common symptom of whiplash, but this pain can radiate to the shoulders, arms, and hands too. Whiplash can also produce headaches, jaw pain, ringing in the ears, irritability, and neck stiffness. In some cases, people will have sleep disturbances or feel more fatigued throughout the day. Whiplash is known to even cause severe symptoms such as depression, memory loss, nausea, and blurred vision.
The problem with whiplash is that some people do not experience anything until months after the incident occurred. If you experienced a traumatic event, you should visit a trained medical professional to assess your neck, even if you don't feel any pain. An X-ray and other imagining tests can reveal that more damage was done than you originally believed.

The most severe cases of whiplash can affect anything from the spinal nerves to the vertebra in your upper back, so it is vital that you get the care you need to recover from your whiplash.
