Chiropractic Care for Whiplash

Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the neck forward with force. Most common forms of whiplash occur after an automobile accident. Whiplash can happen at speeds of as slow as 8.2 mph. When a person is experiencing whiplash, it is more common to not experience any initial symptoms but rather delayed onset symptoms. Symptoms of whiplash may not show up for days, weeks, or even months.

Short term effects of whiplash may include but are not limited to neck stiffness, headaches, and dizziness. Worse yet, long term effects of whiplash can include but may not be limited to disc degeneration, restricted range of motion, difficulty concentrating, and depression.
