What is Whiplash?
When your head and neck are forced into flexion/ extension in an accident, the bones, muscles and ligaments can all be damaged to varying degrees. After xrays have excluded any spinal fractures, a Chiropractor can successfully treat the muscle spasm and vertebral alignment issues that result. A Chiropractor is uniquely qualified to restore the health of your spine because manipulation can correct these spinal alignment problems.
As whiplash symptoms can present months and years after the incident, no matter how minor, it is extremely important to visit a Chiropractor immediately in order to maintain your optimal neck function.
