Whiplash is a term described as an injury to neck that is caused by the effects of a car or motor vehicle accident. Injuries sustained by being “rear-ended” is at the greatest risk of injury for whiplash. It can occur at relatively low speed impact and does not necessarily cause any pain at the time of the accident, because of the body’s ability to compensate for injuries. Problems can arise weeks, months or even years later.

Whiplash Damage can be Quick

The force exerted to your body by the vehicle can cause your whiplash injury to occur in less than one-half of a second! Possible damage to the vertebrae, muscles, nerve discs, and ligaments of your neck and spine can be substantial.

Chiropractic treatment and associated soft tissue therapy, mobilization and exercise advice will restore normal movement to the joints between the vertebrae of the spine, providing relief from the discomfort and pain.
