Auto Accident Injury

Whiplash is a condition that affects two million Americans each year. Often patients who experience whiplash are people who have been in car accidents. Even very minor car accidents can cause symptoms of whiplash.

Whiplash: What It Is and What It Does

Whiplash is caused by the sudden jerky movement that occurs when the car impacts a large stationary object. When this happens, the joints in the body stretch in ways that are painful and detrimental.

Although whiplash is a common problem for people who are in auto accidents, whiplash can actually affect people under a variety of circumstances. Sports injuries and unexpected falls can also cause whiplash.

Whiplash can cause a variety of symptoms. The symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Neck stiffness
  • Lower back pain
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Pain or numbness in the arm or hand
  • Shoulder and neck pain

How Can Seeing a Chiropractor Help?

Chiropractors have a number of methods they use to treat whiplash. These methods include:

  • Exercise. Although bed rest used to be one of the common methods for treating whiplash, it is now known that bed rest can cause patients' muscles to become stiff and more painful. Exercise is now the accepted approach. Chiropractors show patients how to do exercises in their own home so they can work on healing their injuries at times and in locations that are convenient for them.
  • Ice. Ice is often recommended for the first 24 hours after the injury and diagnosis.
  • Spinal Adjustment. Spinal adjustments are used to realign the bones in the spine and restore balance to the body. Spinal adjustments are one of the primary ways that chiropractors treat their patients.

When Should You See a Chiropractor After a Car Accident in the Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, and Glendale, AZ areas?

It can take people days to show symptoms of whiplash, and even people who show symptoms may not recognize the symptoms for what they are. As a result, many people who experience whiplash fail to seek medical treatment when the car accident first occurs. This delayed response can lead to prolonged pain and suffering. The sooner the injured person seeks treatment with a chiropractor, the better.

For more information about how chiropractic care can be helpful in treating your condition, contact our chiropractor, Dr. Michael Soloman. He can treat your whiplash before the problem becomes severe.

Testimonial

"I’ve been getting Chiropractic care for many years, but it was always treatment for the same issues. While I got temporary relief, I’d be back several months for the same problem. With NSA, I’m feeling like I’m truly making progress. I am standing taller, running with far less pain, and feeling calmer overall. Thanks Dr. Mike!"
