Car Accident and Whiplash Recovery

Whiplash injuries associated with motor vehicle accidents can occur in speeds as little as 12 mph. Symptoms of whiplash may not arise until days or weeks after the initial injury. If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident, allow our chiropractors and therapists perform a comprehensive evaluation in order to decide whether rehabilitation or consultation with another health care provider is necessary.

Common symptoms of whiplash include: referred shoulder girdle or upper extremity pain, dizziness, nausea, headache, confusion, concentration and/or memory difficulties, and hypersensitivity to sound, smell, and/or light. Early treatment of whiplash injuries can reduce the changes of incurring chronic pain. Treatment interventions include: cervical mobilization/adjustment, pain-management, postural exercises, and exercises for strength, coordination, and endurance.
