Whiplash is caused by an injury to the neck when the head moves forward and backward in a rapid motion that ends up placing strain on the surrounding muscles and ligaments and usually occurs in a motor vehicle accident. Symptoms of whiplash include:
Restricted joint movement in the spine or limbs
A herniated disc that causes sharp pain down one or both arms
Chronic neck pain
Neck pain caused by whiplash can become chronic if left untreated. Spine Evolution can help to diagnose and handle the underlying problem. Visiting a chiropractor allows your spine to gently become realigned to its proper position allowing your pain to dissipate.
