Like many injuries, people often run to medications to help alleviate the pain. However, and particularly in terms of whiplash, medications alone are not going to give you relief. A whiplash injury occurs when you experience a forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck. Generally, the neck and head are suddenly forced backwards and then thrown forwards. During this action, the cervical spine experiences those extremely fast movements and goes under extreme stress. Whiplash can be caused by many different types of high-impact events. Most commonly, whiplash occurs after someone is involved in a rear-ended motor vehicle accident. Other events could include bungee jumping, roller coasters, football, falls, and any other high-impact activities that you could be involved in. Once you have experienced whiplash, it’s important to take the right paths to recovery. Medications can give you temporary relief but for true healing, it begins right at the source of injury and that is where Catalyst Chiropractic & Rehab can help.
Why Treat Whiplash?
It’s not uncommon to have whiplash after a high impact incident. However, it’s important to not justify the pain and continue to live with it. Whiplash injuries can affect your neck, shoulders, upper and lower back and can manifest itself in several different forms of pain. Whether that’s numbness, stabbing or shooting pains, none of this is normal or good. What could start off as minor whiplash could escalate quickly into excruciating, chronic pain and injuries. If you feel like you have a whiplash injury, let us help you diagnose, treat and get you back on the right track to wellness.
