Whiplash Q & A


What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a type of injury to the muscles and ligaments of the spine that occurs when the head is quickly whipped backward and then forward. Most often, whiplash injuries occur during car accidents, though they can also occur after falling, riding a roller coaster, or playing sports.

When the head is jerked backward and then forward, it causes increased forces and tension on the tiny muscles and ligaments that surround and support the spine.

Whiplash can even occur in low-speed car accidents under 20 miles per hour. Left untreated, whiplash can cause long-term stiffness, instability, and neck pain.

Call us and tell us about your health issues and set up a free consultation to discuss the treatment that will best get you back to optimum health.

What are the Signs of Whiplash?

While some signs of whiplash are obvious — including neck pain — other symptoms may be mistaken for simple muscle tension if you’re not properly evaluated by the team at Premier Chiropractic.

Common signs of whiplash include:

  • Neck pain
  • Neck stiffness
  • Spinal instability
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Headaches
  • Numbness and tingling in the arms or hands
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness

In more severe cases, whiplash can also cause ringing in the ears, sleep issues, irritability, and mental health problems.

 Chiropractic Care for Chronic Neck Pain Alvin, TX

Because whiplash injuries are more complex than simple muscle strains or ligament sprains, the Premier Chiropractic team has advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of whiplash injuries after car accidents and other personal injury accidents.

What is the Treatment for Whiplash?

A whiplash treatment plan is developed based on the severity of your injury, your symptoms, and any necessary X-rays. Often, the first steps of treatment are decreasing your pain and improving your range of motion.

As you recover from the pain, the team incorporates exercises and stretches to improve your flexibility and the strength of the muscles surrounding your neck. This adds protection and stability to your neck and can prevent reaggravation of your condition.

Depending on the extent of your whiplash injuries, treatment may last a few weeks to more than a month, especially if you’re experiencing neurological symptoms like numbness and tingling. Without treatment, your symptoms may become chronic.
