Whiplash Without a Car?

October 23, 2017

 

When you hear the word, “whiplash,” most people immediately picture a rear-end motor vehicle accident. But there are other ways that whiplash injuries can occur, including:

 

• Assault, such as being punched or shaken
• Roller coaster rides
• Sports, especially contact sports such as football or boxing
• Falls

 

Symptoms and related pain can show up immediately or up to 72 hours after the impact that caused the whiplash injury. And the pain and discomfort can last for months if not years.

 

Following a whiplash injury, the goal of chiropractic care is to return affected neck joints to their normal position to relieve stress on nerves and strain on affected muscles. For best results, and to avoid the formation of scar tissue and unnecessary pain, you should make an appointment to come in for an examination as soon as possible after a whiplash injury.
