What are the causes of whiplash?

Whiplash is a severe neck injury. It can be caused by anything that forcefully jerks your head back and forth. The most common cause is a car accident, but you may experience a neck injury if you’ve recently had a hard fall, been hit in the head with an object or been tackled during a sports game.

How do I know if I have a neck injury?

If you have a neck injury, especially whiplash, you’ll notice neck stiffness and pain and an increase in your headache frequency and severity. You may also notice soreness or tenderness when you touch your shoulders or the back of your neck, and some individuals also experience tingling down the arms, swelling or inflammation in the neck and muscle spasms.

How does your chiropractor diagnose neck injuries?

Our chiropractor in Chicago will diagnose neck injuries via a physical examination and a verbal description of your symptoms. In some cases, it may also be necessary to take digital images of your neck in order to make a complete diagnosis.

What chiropractic treatments are available for whiplash?

Our chiropractor provides customized treatment programs to treat whiplash symptoms and help heal the injury. Common treatment programs can include chiropractic adjustments, corrective exercises, massage therapy and nutritional guidance. If you have a herniated disc in your neck in addition to your whiplash injury, our chiropractor may recommend spinal decompression therapy to help heal the disc.

How long are the treatment programs for whiplash related neck injuries?

The treatment programs for neck injuries that are the result of whiplash vary according to the individual. Our chiropractor will be able to tell you more about your treatment program and its length after your examination. Your treatment program will also be adjusted, according to how well you heal and your treatment needs.
