Understanding the Condition and How a Chiropractor Can Help
Whiplash is a common injury resulting from a sudden and forceful back-and-forth movement of the neck, often caused by car accidents, sports injuries, and other types of trauma. Whiplash injury can cause a range of symptoms, including stiffness and neck pain, headaches, fatigue, and dizziness.
At our chiropractic clinic, we understand the importance of addressing whiplash injuries promptly and effectively. Whiplash chiropractor Dr. Lief Hands is equipped with the knowledge and abilities to identify and treat this uncomfortable condition.
What Causes Whiplash?
Whiplash is typically caused by a rapid and forceful movement of the neck, such as the impact of a car crash or a sudden hit during a sporting event. This sudden movement can stretch the soft tissues of the neck, including the muscles, tendons, and ligaments, beyond their normal range of motion, resulting in injury.
Symptoms of Whiplash
The symptoms can range from mild to severe, and may not appear immediately after the whiplash injury. Some common symptoms include:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Difficulty concentrating
- Blurred vision
- Numbness or tingling in the arms or hands
- Ringing in the ears
- Memory problems
