Whiplash is often the unfortunate result of a car accident where the head is involuntarily and rapidly thrown forward and then back. Sometimes symptoms appear immediately and sometimes it may be days or months later.
Certain chiropractic spinal adjustments can restore the position of individual bones in the spine and re-institute correct movement to promote better healing. Immediate attention provides the most success.
Numbness, tingling and pain can result because the nerves to the arm and hand leave the spine through the injured portion of the neck. Lower back pain is also common because of misalignment of spinal curvature.
The only way to avert a whiplash injury is to practice defensive driving skills. All vehicle lights and signals should be operational and you should remain aware of your surroundings at all times while driving.
