Whiplash Injuries

WHIPLASH

 If you've been involved in an Auto Accident, you may be experiencing symptoms of whiplash that can include neck pain, back pain, and headache.

Whiplash is a common injury sustained in motor vehicle accidents.  The symptoms of pain and stiffness may not be felt for weeks and even months after the injury.  Whiplash results when the head is thrown forward then backward (hyper flexion and extension).  This can result in numerous types of injuries.  This strain is what we refer to as "soft tissue damage" because your tendons and muscles are soft in comparison to your bones.  Soft tissue damage and/or changes include sprain and strain of the muscles in the neck and shoulders which are a result of tears in the muscle filaments.  Also, postural ligaments (front and back of the neck) can be injured.  Other common injuries that might not be felt immediately are disc injuries.  Discs are the cushions between your vertebras.

These injuries can be tears in the fibers of the disc, bulges, and even herniasions.  We can properly diagnose these injuries through examination, x-ray, and MRI; and properly treat them before they worsen.

At First Choice Chiropractic, Dr. Herrington treats symptoms of whiplash like neck pain, back pain, headache, and fatigue which allows for a speedy recovery.
