Chiropractic has been a blessing to millions of people who have had whiplash injuries. What are whiplash symptoms and how does chiropractic help?
Immediately after the accident you may feel some neck soreness or stiffness, perhaps accompanied by a headache. Later, pain and/or numbness, tingling or a pins-and-needles feeling may develop between the shoulder blades, in the arm, hand and/or fingers. Depending on the nerves affected, you may have ear ringing, dizziness, hearing loss, eye pain, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, nasal problems, low back pain, and even internal organ problems.
Chiropractic effectiveness with whiplash sufferers has long been observed and reported in professional journals. In one study, 41 male and female patients (ages 17-67) with whiplash injuries were placed under chiropractic care. Pain levels were significantly lower after 20 office visits.
Any accident may cause subluxations—structural misalignments and irritated or damaged nerves. If you’ve ever been involved in an accident, whiplash or otherwise, no matter how long ago, please see your doctor of chiropractic to ensure that you have really healed as completely as possible. Trauma or injury from many years ago may be responsible for seemingly unrelated health problems suffered today.
