A Common and Painful Auto Injury: Whiplash

No matter how little you may know about auto accidents, you've doubtless heard of whiplash. This condition gets its name from the whip-like motion that a vehicular occupant's neck undergoes in a collision impact. The weight of the head whips it backward and forward sharply and violently. This extreme motion does a great deal of damage to the neck and its supporting structures. In addition to torn neck muscles, some sufferers experience subluxation of the cervical vertebrae. The discs between those vertebrae may herniate and press against nerves. 

As you might imagine, whiplash can make it difficult or impossible for you to move your head or neck without excruciating pain, but this discomfort may be only one of your symptoms. If a major cervical nerve root has become pinched by swollen tissue, a herniated disc, or a dislocated vertebra, you can experience pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness in your shoulders, arms, or hands. Headaches, blurred vision, tinnitus, depression, dizzy spells, and brain fog are other common whiplash symptoms.

Natural, Non-Invasive Solutions from Dr. Blomdahl and Dr. Zaker

You always want to get your neck looked at after an auto accident, whether you're experiencing obvious whiplash symptoms or not. Shock and adrenalin can often delay such symptoms. Dr. Blomdahl or Dr. Zaker will discuss the accident with you, analyze your symptoms, and study your neck for signs of subluxation or herniated discs. Once we understand the exact nature and severity of your condition, we will come up with an all-natural treatment regimen. Chiropractic adjustments can treat cervical vertebrae, discs, and joints. You may also benefit from massage and acupuncture to soothe damaged neck tissue and speed healing.

Testimonial

  • "I visited Dr. Laura after having tension headaches for several months. After the first adjustment, I had instant relief! I have since visited her practice for acupuncture and had the best massage I've ever experienced from Sarah. Dr. Laura is exceptionally knowledgeable in her field, and I highly recommend her!"

  • "Dr. Laura Zaker has helped me realize that the spine is movable. I'm in my early sixties and was skeptical that my persistent back pain could be addressed. After years of sharp pain, within two months, I am amazed that I no longer have the pain. The muscles in my back and neck are no longer feeling strained. I am writing this since I was fortunate to have received this unexpected physical improvement; I am a fan of Dr. Laura Zaker."
