Whiplash Treatment from our Chiropractors in Onalaska, Holmen, and Sparta
When you are in an auto accident, especially a rear-end collision, you may end up experiencing neck pain from a whiplash injury. This type of injury affects your neck and upper spine, leading to pain and other symptoms that can be mild or serious. At Chiropractic Place Family Wellness Centers, we provide treatment for whiplash from our experienced chiropractors in Holmen, Onalaska, and Sparta.
Causes of Whiplash
Whiplash occurs when there damage to the neck and upper spine from trauma, such as being in a car collision. This injury happens when the head is abruptly thrown back and forth. This sudden motion can cause muscle tears and other damage that results in moderate or severe pain, as well as several other symptoms. Auto accidents are among the most common causes of whiplash, but this injury can occur from other types of physical trauma, such as being tackled or hit in contact sports.
Symptoms of Whiplash
When you have whiplash, you might not have symptoms right away. In some cases, symptoms can take up to a day to surface. Neck pain is the most common whiplash symptom, but you may also experience stiffness that limits your ability to move your head around. Other symptoms that can occur include headaches, especially in the back of your head near your neck, pain in your upper back, shoulder soreness and lightheadedness. You might also feel a tingling sensation that travels down your arms. Whiplash can also cause blurry vision, sleep problems, ringing in your eyes, mood changes and trouble concentrating, especially when this injury is left untreated.
Prompt Treatment for Whiplash
Even though you might not experience symptoms of whiplash until a day after an accident, you should seek care as soon as possible. Leaving whiplash untreated increases your risk of developing chronic problems that cause ongoing neck and upper back pain. Keep in mind that the damage you have from this injury might also be worse than it appears.
