Whiplash Treatment from Our Chiropractor in Wilmington, DE
Whiplash is a type of car accident injury that causes neck pain and other uncomfortable symptoms. Fortunately, our chiropractor in Wilmington, DE, provides the care you need to relieve your pain.
The powerful momentum of a car accident can cause painful soft tissue injuries. This is particularly true in a rear-end collision that causes your head to lurch backward, forward, and then forward again. This whipping motion of whiplash can injure the soft tissues of your neck, shoulders and upper back.
Whiplash symptoms may include:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Jaw/ temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain
- Pain, tingling or numbness in your arms
- Concentration or memory problems
- Tinnitus, which is ringing in your ears
- Blurred vision
Whiplash usually involves soft tissues, such as muscles and connective tissue, but the momentum of a car crash may push bones and joints out of position. In some cases, the misaligned bone can cause swelling that presses against nearby nerves, which then send pain signals to your brain.
