Chiropractic Care for Whiplash

Back and Neck Pain Treatment from a Dallas Chiropractor

Whiplash is a very common side effect of car accidents and other traumatic incidents, but many people don’t take it as seriously as they should. The prevailing assumption is that whiplash may hurt for a few days, but then will go away on its own, leaving the sufferer no worse for the wear. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case.

Man with whiplash needs chiropractic care in Dallas, TX.

If you have whiplash, it’s crucial you speak to a Dallas chiropractor about it today. Left untreated, whiplash can become entrenched and cause secondary symptoms, such as pain in the extremities or other parts of the back. Even if you are already working with a physician, it’s important to reach out to a chiropractor today.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a condition of the upper cervical region that is caused by extreme back-and-forth forces being applied to the delicate tissues of the neck. While this is most common in car accidents, it may also happen in on-the-job injuries or falls.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Whiplash?

The most common signs and symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Pain, numbness, tingling or tightness in the neck
  • Radiating pain in the shoulders and lower back
  • Limited range of motion
  • Headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Interrupted sleep
  • Anxiety and depression

Many people don’t even know that seemingly unrelated symptom such as the last four can occur, but they can, especially without treatment.

How Can a Chiropractor Help?

A chiropractor can help with whiplash in many ways. In some cases, gentle adjustment and some massage are all that’s needed to ease the tightness in your neck and speed your healing. In more serious cases, you may need more extensive treatments. These might include physical therapy, spinal decompression, lifestyle advice and more.
