Injuries to the neck caused by the sudden movement of the head backward, forward, or sideways is commonly referred to as 'whiplash."
Often times, the car receives minimal damage, while the occupants suffer severe spinal injuries.
Whiplash is most commonly received from riding in a car that is struck from behind or that collides with another object. When the head is suddenly jerked back and forth violently beyond its normal limits. The muscles and ligaments supporting the head and spine become stretched and torn. The soft pulpy discs between spinal bones can bulge, tear and/or rupture. Vertabrae are often forced out of their mormal position causing severe pain. Whiplash can also occur during sporting activities and slip/falls. These can all have a damaging effect on your neck and back.
The resulting instability of the spine and soft tissues can contribute to headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, pain and weakness in the shouders, arms and hands, reduced abiity to turn and bend and low back problems.
Chiropractic adjustments remove pressure on nerves that cause pain! Adjustments help to restore proper spinal motion, position and function.
You can be pain free. You should be happy.
