Not only is whiplash the most common injury after an auto accident, but also whiplash injuries can occur at crash speeds even below 12 miles an hour. Currently, about 1.5 million Americans suffer chronic pain from whiplash. At St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center, we don’t want you to be one of them. If you are experiencing or suffering from whiplash, it’s time to come in and begin the recovery process.
Whiplash is most commonly caused by auto accidents. However, not all whiplash originates from car crashes. Whiplash can also be caused due to physical abuse, assault and even contact sports. Whiplash is a neck injury that occurs when your body goes one way, but your head goes another. This causes a rapid back and forth movement of the neck, similar to cracking a whip. The main symptoms of whiplash are pain in the neck and shoulders. While you may not feel a lot of pain immediately, it doesn’t mean it won’t show up later. While most people cross their fingers and hope it gets better on its own, that’s not how it really pans out for everyone. While some do gradually recover, others are left with severe neck pain, an increased limited range of motion and even chronic pain that can spread to the arms. For all of those reasons and more, if you’ve been injured, just listen to your back. If you notice any signs of whiplash, don’t ignore them. Instead, come see us for a visit.
