Collision Injury Chiropractic And The Signs And Symptoms of Whiplash
Whiplash occurs when the cervical ligaments are sprained, and tendons are strained really rapidly. Your ligaments and tendons are definitely important since they support and keep your vertebrae from abnormal motion. Whiplash normally affects the joints in the back of the C-spine, called the facet joints.
You should realize the discs between your spinal vertebra might be traumatically stretched torn and/or ripped to a certain degree. Since these tissues have very poor blood supply Whiplash typically stretches and inflames the nerve roots exiting the spinal foramen. Whiplash can cause vertebral compression fractures and/or dislocation in severe motor vehicle accidents.
Whiplash symptoms and signs typically vary between truck occupants and cause a wide range of signs and symptoms of traumatic cervical spine injury. The normal signs are pain and stiffness in the neck upper back and shoulders. More specifically when you try to rotate or turn your head. Headaches, at the base of the skull, are really common. Whiplash irritation typically can refer into the shoulders, arms, upper back, and/or into the upper chest.
Other whiplash symptoms and signs typically include dizziness, trouble swallowing, queasiness, vertigo, ringing in the ears, jaw pain, and blurred vision, though these symptoms and signs often disappear rapidly there typically will be underlying injury. It is consistently better to call your chiropractor ASAP following a car collision. You might also experience nervous system symptoms such as irritability, tiredness, and have trouble focusing mentally.
It’s crucial to understand that auto accident or car crash individuals might not perceive any of these signs and symptoms for 2 or more hours after the incident. Generally speaking typically the worst day is the fourth day following a car or truck accident.
Self-treatment utilizing a soft collar brace is the worst thing you can do for your spinal injuries.
Chiropractors normally utilize spinal manipulation and/or mobilization along with physical therapies such as ice, heat, massage therapy and electrical stimulation. The AMA specifies that chiropractic adjustment, manipulation, mobilization, and intermittent traction is the best treatment for whiplash.
Our experienced chiropractors utilize other treatments such as ice and/or heated compresses for decreasing discomfort and pain and muscle spasms, as well as physical medicine techniques, such as electrical stimulation, ultra sound and strengthening exercises. If you or a family member are the victim of whiplash from a vehicle accident call the doctors at collision injury chiropractic.
