The Common Perils of Whiplash Injury

Don’t wait to get help for an auto accident injury

Whiplash is the most common by-product of a vehicular accident, whether it’s produced by a parking lot fender bender or a head-on collision with an 18-wheeler! It also can be vastly debilitating, with far-reaching effects if left untreated.

At American Chiropractic Clinic — Austin, we always recommend that you have your spine checked following any kind of auto accident. Any body part that’s jarred or thrown forward unexpectedly can sustain microscopic stretching and tearing of ligaments. Unfortunately, the ones that support the head and neck are particularly vulnerable. Since chiropractors specialize in sustaining the integrity of the nervous system, it just makes sense to make an appointment for a thorough evaluation following a collision.

What Are the Symptoms Related to a Car Accident Injury?

Research and our many years of experience in treating auto accident victims demonstrates that many people don’t manifest the symptoms of a car crash until weeks or months later. It’s always wise to be proactive with your health and avoid the potential pitfalls of a chronic condition.

Here are some common symptoms that you should be aware of:

  • Anxiety and/or difficulty sleeping
  • Dizziness, nausea or vertigo
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Irritability
  • Low back pain or stiffness
  • Muscle soreness or weakness
  • Numbness or tingling into the arms or hands
  • Reduced range of motion in the neck accompanied by pain
  • Swelling or tenderness over the joints

If you experience any of these symptoms, it simply indicates that structural damage has taken place. It’s important to correct all misalignment as quickly as possible so that the body, as it undergoes tissue regeneration, will heal in optimal alignment.
