Whiplash Injury Treatment

Whiplash, also known as cervical acceleration-deceleration (CAD), is a neck injury caused by rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck like the cracking of a whip.  The most common cause of whiplash is from rear-end vehicle collisions, but the injury can result from other traumas such as physical abuse or sports accidents.

    Whiplash is one of the top delayed injuries that occur after a car accident. Common symptoms include:

    • Neck and jaw pain
    • Loss of range of motion in the neck
    • Headaches
    • Herniated discs
    • Torn muscles
    • Joint dysfunction
    • Tingling or numbness in the arms

    While most people recover in a few months, others can experience chronic complications that can be accompanied by depression, stress and anxiety, insomnia, anger and PTSD.

    If you experience Whiplash symptoms after an accident or injury, it is important to get a prompt and accurate diagnosis to rule out fractures and other tissue damage.  Your healthcare practitioner may use diagnostic tools such as CT scans, X-rays or MRIs.

    Chiropractic care, physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage and electronic nerve stimulation (EMS) are all therapies that will help treat Whiplash injury.  For more information, contact a qualified healthcare provider in your area.
