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.
