Our Chiropractors in York Explains Whiplash

Whiplash refers to a specific type of neck pain or back pain. Generally, it develops after an auto accident or a similar accident causes your head to suddenly snap forward and then backward at a fast pace. Depending on the severity of your injuries and the accident, the injury may cause complications or health concerns.

Symptoms of Whiplash

The signs and symptoms of whiplash depend on the severity of your injuries and the accident. In most cases, you notice the pain or discomfort within a day or two of the accident. 

Signs of the injury include:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Tension in your neck and shoulders
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Insomnia or a difficulty with sleeping
  • Depression
  • Limited range of motion in your neck
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue or feeling tired
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in your ears

There is a possibility that you may not notice the injury at the time of the accident. It is important to pay attention to any signs of an injury within a day or two of the accident. Signs of whiplash might appear up to 48 hours after the accident occurs.

Working with a Car Accident Injury Chiropractor in York

When you get into an accident, you want to work with a car accident injury chiropractor in York. Whiplash is a complex injury due to the potential impact on your muscles, shoulders, upper back, and even the spine. 

Treating whiplash injury in our clinic allows you to address the underlying complications associated with the injury. We usually develop a personalized treatment plan using exercises and stretches to help with the healing process and physical rehabilitation. We may also use massage to work out the tension in your muscles or to address muscle-related aspects of the injury.

A York chiropractor in our clinic also determines an appropriate treatment plan for spinal and neck manipulation. The chiropractic care focuses on realigning your neck and spine for better nervous system function after an accident. It also helps reduce pressure on your spine and neck caused by the injury and the difficulty with mobility after the injury.

We recommend visiting our clinic after the accident or when you notice symptoms of whiplash and chronic pain. The symptoms may worsen without treatment and a chiropractor helps your body heal by addressing the cause of your discomfort. At our clinic, we serve residents of York, Dallas Town, Elizabethtown, Red Lion and Lancaster, PA.
