Whiplash Injuries

If you are in a car accident, you may not think that you are injured if there is no visible damage. However, injuries often don’t present symptoms for days or even weeks after the accident. Leaving these conditions untreated can cause further health complications. Chiropractic care can help in detecting these issues after an auto accident. At Lake Marion Chiropractic, serving St. Paul and Lakeville, MN, we can treat you for injuries after a car accident, including whiplash injuries.

What Whiplash Can Do to the Body

The number one cause of whiplash is being rear ended by another car, because it causes your head to snap forward then backward quickly. However, you can also suffer from whiplash during a sporting activity, a physical attack, or personal injury, such as a fall.

When you suffer from whiplash, you may experience stiffness in your neck and shoulders, pain when you move your head, headaches, decreased range of motion, tingling and numbness in the neck, shoulders, and arms, and dizziness. Whiplash can even cause you to have blurred vision, sleep disturbances, memory problems, and fatigue.

When treated promptly and properly, your whiplash symptoms won’t last long. Even if you only feel some minor neck stiffness, it is vital to seek treatment immediately so that your symptoms don’t worsen or cause other issues.

When visiting our chiropractor, we will do a physical exam to diagnose your injury. Our chiropractor will then develop a treatment plan specifically for you using gentle, all-natural techniques. This may include a spinal adjustment, which aligns your spine to alleviate pain and tension in the neck and back. We might also use massage therapy to loosen stiffness in your muscles and promote blood flow and healing. We also offer several soft tissues therapies that can help with whiplash.
