Whiplash Accident Symptoms
Most people associate whiplash with automobile accidents, and though this isn’t the only instance where neck injury can occur, it’s an applicable correlation. Just like a car wreck, you can’t prepare for or prevent whiplash other than by being careful. It happens due to a quick, unpredictable event, such as a car collision, so usually disastrous if you or someone you know is subject to whiplash. While we all want to do your best to avoid this situation. It is crucial that you understand whiplash symptoms so you can seek out proper care and treatment.
Whiplash refers to injuries to the neck vertebrae, including the surrounding soft tissues as a result of a whip like movement when your neck and head is suddenly and violently thrust forward and then backward. Whiplash injury is common following a car accident, but realize slip & falls, sports injury, and work related injury are other potential causes.
Whiplash happen when the neck ligaments are sprained and tendons are strained very rapidly. Your ligaments and tendons are absolutely crucial because they support and keep your vertebrae from abnormal movement. Whiplash usually affects the joints in the back of the spine, called the facet joints.
Understand the discs between your vertebrae may be torn. Whiplash usually stretch and inflame of the nerve roots between the vertebrae. Whiplash has been known to cause vertebral fractures and/or dislocation.
Whiplash signs and symptoms usually vary between vehicle occupants and causes a variety of indicators of traumatic neck injury. The typical symptoms are pain and stiffness in the neck, specifically when you move your head. Head pain, at the base of the skull, are very common. Whiplash pain may refer into the shoulders, arms, upper back, and/or into the upper chest.
Other symptoms may include dizziness, trouble swallowing, nausea, vertigo, ringing in the ears, jaw pain, and blurred vision, though these symptoms often go away quickly there may be underlying injury. It is always better to immediately contact your doctor of chiropractic following a car wreck. You may also experience nervous system symptoms such as irritability, fatigue, and trouble concentrating.
It’s important to realize note that you may not notice any of these signs and symptoms for two or more hours and more often than not the worst day is the 4th day following a car collision.
Self-treatment using soft collar braces is the worst thing you can do for your neck injuries.
Chiropractors utilize spinal manipulation and/or mobilization. The American Medical Association states that manipulation, mobilization, and intermittent traction is the best treatment for whiplash injury.
Our Chiropractic physicians use other treatments such as ice and/or heated compresses for reducing pain and muscle spasms, as well as physical medicine techniques, such as electrical stimulation. If you or a loved one is the victim of whiplash from a car accident call the doctors and chiropractors at www.phoenixcaraccident.com 602-456-7252.
