What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a hyperextension-hyperflexion injury that happens when your head is forced beyond its range of motion. This is common in auto accidents from the sudden and unnatural movement of the head that happens on impact or when you stop abruptly.

Whiplash can cause misalignments and torn ligaments in the neck, resulting in symptoms like neck pain and headaches. If you have been involved in an auto accident, you are usually happy to walk away from it, and a little adrenaline can keep you from even noticing a twinge in your neck. It is important to see our chiropractor whenever you have been in an auto accident, because you may not experience symptoms until a few days after the accident.

What Can I Do if I Have a Whiplash Injury?

Our chiropractor will create a customized treatment plan to address the severity of your case and your symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments help treat whiplash in Chula Vista, CA, by realigning the cervical spine. Spinal manipulation corrects subluxations to relieve pain and improve the range of motion of the neck. An adjustment also improves blood flow to injured areas to help you heal faster.

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.
