Nearly 2 million Americans suffer from whiplash each year. Often caused by rear-end car accidents, whiplash happens when a sudden, jolting movement of the head is sustained backward, forward or to the side.
Whiplash injuries from car accidents are a serious matter and chiropractors are trained to evaluate and treat these types of injuries. Many people experience car accidents every year, but not everybody understands the severity of the underlying damage. The impact of the auto accident causes an acceleration and force into your body, which not only damages muscles, tendons, and ligaments, but also shifts your spine out of alignment.
Injuries left untreated
Although your pain may eventually go away, if you let your spine go uncorrected, it will heal in a damaged state, allowing tension to set in and health problems to surface.
When your spine is out of alignment, your nerves become pinched, which creates problems throughout the rest of your body. Many experience headaches, migraines, numbness in the arm and hand, weakness in grip, and neck, shoulder, and arm pain.
But pain only occurs 10% of the time when a nerve is pinched. The other 90% of the function goes directly to your organs. This can result in sinus trouble, allergies, thyroid problems, asthma related issues, acid reflux, GI problems, constipation, IBS, hormonal problems, poor sleep, and low energy.

It is crucial to have the right testing done after an auto accident to see if your spine is out of alignment and how to resolve this auto injury. The sooner you receive and evaluation and treatment plan, the sooner you can recover and prevent future disease or pain.
