Whiplash Treatment in Windsor

Our Windsor Chiropractor Treats Whiplash Injuries

Whiplash is an injury that often catches people off guard, occurring suddenly and unexpectedly. If left unattended, this type of neck injury can result in prolonged and widespread pain. This traumatic incident strains the muscles, tendons, and ligaments, causing damage to the intervertebral discs and misalignment of the vertebrae. The resulting harm includes subluxations and pinched nerves, which contribute to persistent pain. Our Windsor chiropractors Dr. Sarah and Dr. Todd have effectively treated numerous cases of whiplash and advise individuals who have experienced such trauma to promptly request an examination.

Causes of Whiplash:

Whiplash commonly occurs after being involved in rear-end collisions, but any sudden movement that causes the head to jerk forward and backward can have the same result. Activities like karate, which involve forceful blows to the face causing the head to snap back, can also lead to whiplash symptoms. People who participate in contact sports like football are also at risk of suffering from similar effects.

How Our Windsor Chiropractors Treat Whiplash

Whiplash is commonly linked to car accidents, but it can also stem from sports injuries or personal mishaps. This injury is often subtle, with pain sometimes not appearing until hours or days later. If you’ve been in an accident or experienced a rapid back-and-forth movement of your head, or if you notice symptoms such as:

  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Hearing or vision issues
  • Face and jaw pain (similar to TMJ)
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Dizziness
  • Upper back pain (between the shoulder blades)
  • Arm and hand discomfort

it’s crucial to seek prompt chiropractic care to address these soft tissue injuries and prevent long-term pain.

Whiplash is a complex injury that affects a crucial part of your spine, requiring comprehensive treatment. Relying solely on painkillers is inadequate because they only mask the symptoms and cannot correct the underlying mechanical issues. Chiropractic adjustments and therapies address the root cause of whiplash, helping to restore proper alignment and function for lasting relief.
