Car accidents, sports injuries or even trips and falls can result in a whiplash injury. Whiplash refers to a sudden movement that throws the head and neck back and forth forcefully, which can potentially cause damage to the discs in the vertebrae, soft tissue damage, spinal column misalignment, and, of course, severe pain.
Millions of people experience a whiplash injury every year, and chiropractic care has been shown to be extremely effective in helping to relieve pain from whiplash-related injuries. Whiplash can also be the cause of many painful or debilitating symptoms, such as headache, numbness, and cold or prickling sensations in the head, chest, arms or hands. Whiplash and neck injury sufferers have reported low back pain, neck pain, ringing in the ears, dizziness, hearing loss, blurred vision, light sensitivity, an inability to sleep, as well as other symptoms.
