Before you visit Beach Chiropractic Clinic in Panama City, FL, for treatment, learn more about whiplash below:
What is Whiplash?
Whiplash is a common injury that occurs after a car accident, but it can be caused by other accidents and injuries, as well. The condition happens because your head and neck are strained due to a sudden stop, such as during a hard impact in a vehicle collision. It causes the head to whip back and forth, which can put a lot of pressure on the head and neck, leading to pain and discomfort.
What are the Symptoms of Whiplash?
When you have a whiplash injury, your neck will typically hurt and may feel stiff. You might also find it difficult to move your neck freely from one side to another. Moving your head up and down, such as touching your chin to your chest, can also cause pain. Some people also have headaches and discomfort in their upper back or shoulders. While you may have symptoms right after the accident, they become more noticeable after a few days.
How Can Our Chiropractor Help?
Our chiropractor can help with alleviate pain from whiplash by gently realigning your neck and head. If your vertebrae are not properly aligned, this can add pressure to these and the surrounding support structures. That pressure leads to pain stiffness and tightness, which can cause more discomfort. Whether you're having trouble with daily activities, work, or hobbies, our chiropractor can offer relief so you can resume these without problems.
Is Whiplash Easily Treatable?
Most cases of whiplash can be treated with a few chiropractic care sessions. Depending on the severity of your condition and how long you have had the injury, you may have to visit us at least a few times for the discomfort to fully resolve. However, whiplash can be treated even if the pain has become chronic.
