Whiplash & Auto Accident Injury Treatment
If you've recently experienced whiplash as a result of a car accident, you know how intense the pain and discomfort can become. Auto Accident Urgent Care in the Kansas City Metro area offers treatment for whiplash and other auto accident injuries. Here's what you should know before visiting one of our chiropractors.
What Causes Whiplash Injuries?
Whiplash is often linked to rear-end accidents, but the truth is that it can stem from any kind of car accident. When your head is whipped forward and then backward suddenly, the tendons and ligaments in your neck can become overstretched or torn. The resulting pain can impact your daily life, causing headaches and other painful symptoms. Remember that whiplash is usually linked to car accidents, but that is not the only way to experience whiplash. You can also face symptoms due to a sports injury, falls, or other physical traumas.
After a car accident, you may face symptoms in a matter of days, but it can also take weeks to feel the full impact of whiplash. You may experience symptoms such as neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, dizziness, balance issues, fatigue, tingling arms, blurry vision, and insomnia. You may also notice that you experience a reduced range of motion in your neck, which makes it hard to do your favorite activities. Keep in mind that anybody can experience whiplash. This is not a condition that discriminates. No matter your age, sex, weight, or height, you could experience this kind of injury.
Using Chiropractic Care for Whiplash Treatment
Chiropractic care helps people with whiplash by addressing damage to the ligaments, muscles, and tendons in the body. Treatment also addresses misalignment in the spine and treats herniated discs and other back pain. Your chiropractor will restore your body's alignment, release trapped nerves, and provide massage therapy, trigger point therapy, chiropractic adjustments, and more.
