The first thing that you need to know is what is whiplash.
Whiplash is just a description for a specific type of injury that is common in auto accidents. A whiplash induced injury is caused by a quick acceleration and then deceleration of the cervical spine. That fast motion can cause a lot of damage to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments and often results in neck pain, back pain, headaches and many other symptoms.
The worst part of a whiplash-induced injury from an auto accident is that they can cause ligament damage. This type of injury can have SEVERE long term effects and many people often think that the neck pain and back pain will just go away after a few weeks of rest or drug therapy. Unfortunately, they are at risk for serious for longer term suffering of numerous secondary symptoms. Symptoms like neck pain, back pain, headaches and others when appropriate treatment from a chiropractor who is familiar with these types of injuries is not received.
The most common question at Corrective Chiropractic from patients in auto accidents is “Why didn’t my medical doctor tell me that this is what caused my auto accident pain?” The simple answer is because they don’t know. It’s important to understand that medical care for pain is frequently focused primarily on treating just the symptoms and not the cause. Very few medical doctors and even chiropractors are aware of how to properly analyze and thus treat ligament and tendon and whiplash induced muscle injuries from an auto accident.
