South FL Chiropractor - Whiplash Injuries
December 12, 2020

Often when you are involved in what seems like a minor car accident, you walk away feeling fine with little damage to your vehicle, and yet many times injuries manifest in the days or weeks that follow your accident. Whiplash is often a result of a so-called minor accident, a low speed collision, making it important to seek chiropractic care following any accident. 

Let’s explore what whiplash is and how the expert team at County Line Chiropractic Medical & Rehab Centers can help.  

Defining Whiplash

Whiplash - Car Accident Injury

The well-qualified team at County Line Chiropractic is often asked about whiplash injuries, particularly when they occur in what seemed a minor accident. An injury to the neck as a result of the vehicle’s sudden loss of motion, and the neck bending violently back and forth can result in whiplash. 

In a whiplash injury, your spinal column is forced to pass its normal range of motion, potentially injuring the cervical spine’s vertebrae, as well as the surrounding neck muscles and ligaments. Most commonly whiplash occurs following a car accident in which you were rear-ended but can also occur when riding a roller coaster or playing contact sports. The onset of pain from whiplash may not manifest for up to 72 hours following your collision and symptoms vary based on the extent of the whiplash injury. 

Symptoms of Whiplash

Common Symptoms of Whiplash - South FL Chiropractor

Ultimately whiplash results in considerable discomfort and pain. Some common signs and symptoms of a whiplash injury include:

  • Pain or stiffness in the neck when the injury occurs or in the days that follow
  • Pain or stiffness in the back, shoulders, or arms
  • Difficulty bending or twisting your neck as you would normally
  • Hearing, vision, or memory issues
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches

Getting the Help You Need
