Whiplash is a unique type of injury, usually to the neck. It occurs when the ligaments are stretched past their normal length. Because of the weight of the head, not only are the ligaments over stretched in one direction but also tractioned past their normal length. This causes a more severe type of injury that complicates the healing process. In many cases, because of this special type of injury, symptoms are delayed.
Whiplash occurs commonly in auto accidents but also can occur in sports collisions, falling down the stairs, or other types of falls. Whiplash injuries cause joint dysfunction, which leads to inflammation and pain. Chiropractic doctors are experts in treating whiplash injuries and correcting the joint dysfunction that can be causing your neck pain. The doctors at Newman Chiropractic are experts at alleviating neck pain, correcting joint dysfunction, and the causes of your joint dysfunction, so your neck pain does not return.
