Car Accident Chiropractor in The Colony

auto injuries are commonly helped by seeing a chiropractor

If you’ve ever collided with something while driving a car, you probably know what whiplash is. In fact, if you haven’t seen a doctor about it, you’re probably still feeling its effects today. If you have experienced Whiplash in The Colony it is important to see a chiropractor right away.

Act quickly, inflammation and scar tissue can be reduced and the damage done can be examined. To return spinal function back to normal, we create a plan of action. This plan usually consists of several visits to the chiropractor. The goal is to reposition any moved bones and helps you to restore full mobility.


Whiplash in The Colony

Whiplash occurs when something causes an abrupt movement of the head to “whip”. This occurs in instances such as a car wreck or a blow to the head. The sudden, forceful movement of one’s upper body, everything from the head, neck, shoulders, and back may also be consequently injured. The stretching or tearing of muscles and ligaments are included in these injuries.

As a result of any of these injuries, symptoms may arrive instantly, or not for weeks later. Your body will have a unique response as it tries to adapt to the damage and pain. Symptoms of whiplash may include blurry vision, pain in the shoulder, arms, and hands. You also may experience headaches, reduced mobility, dizziness, and lower back pain.

  • Disc bulges and herniation
  • Subluxations (misalignment of the vertebrae in the spine),
  • Injured bones in the spine,
  • Irritated and damaged nerves
  • Pulled ligaments and muscles in the neck

What are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

Whiplash injuries can range from mild to very severe. Injuries tend to be more significant when your headrest is positioned too low. If the impact was quite severe or the headrest was low there is the possibility that bones are broken or tissue is damaged. It is highly recommended that you see a chiropractor and receive a thorough examination and x-rays. Even if the impact seemed mild, you may have whiplash if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder, upper back, and arm pain
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Pain when turning the head
  • Inability to move or turn the head fully
  • Dizziness
  • Tiredness
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms, hands, and fingers
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Depression

As you can see there are a wide range of symptoms and not all of them may be immediately traceable to whiplash. Even if you have been cleared by a doctor, your pain could still be related to whiplash and you may need treatment to correct the problem. If you have recently been injured it's important to get your spine checked as soon as possible. The sooner that you start treating the issue the less chance you have of it developing into a long-term problem.
