Have you been in a car crash? Are you now experiencing neck or back pain? You are most likely experiencing whiplash pain as a result of the accident. No matter how small or minor your car accident may have been, if there is damage to the car, there is damage to your body. Whiplash can also occur from other issues such as banging or shaking your head too much. Symptoms of whiplash can be quite painful, to the point that you can’t carry out daily tasks because you can’t turn your head from side to side. Before the pain worsens, seek chiropractic care from a Lithia Springs chiropractor for whiplash relief after a car accident or other injury.
Signs and Symptoms of Whiplash
The impact of a rear end car crash forces the head and neck forward and then violently slams them backward. This forceful motion can cause significant damage to the musculoskeletal system. You may not notice any pain or problems at first, but after a day or two, you will often experience muscle stiffness, headaches, limited range of motion of the neck, back pain, numbness, and even dizziness. If not addressed, symptoms of whiplash can worsen, possibly even leading to chronic pain. To relieve the pain, your first instinct is probably to reach for medication. But medication only acts as a band aid, covering up the pain until the medicine wears off and symptoms return. For long-term relief, turn to Lithia Springs chiropractor Dr. Ronnie Bolar.
