Whiplash Examination

It is not at all uncommon for someone to have signs and symptoms of whiplash and not understand where the pain and tenderness is coming from. Experienced chiropractors at Caron Chiropractic are experts in diagnosing and identifying a whiplash injury that may have happened recently or from a past, forgotten injury. Our facility has resources for a comprehensive whiplash examination to identify the severity of the whiplash injury. Understanding what we are dealing with helps to develop the best treatment plan for each individual patient.

During the whiplash examination your healthcare provider will strive to determine the following factors of the injury and affects on your health.

• Range of motion difficulties when moving your head and neck
• Stiffness in soft tissues of the neck region
• Pain brought on by moving head in a side to side or back and forth motion
• Numbness, sensation, strength and reflexes in limbs

Common Whiplash Symptoms

Whiplash injuries are due to a rapid and forceful movement of the neck. Not surprisingly, auto accidents are the leading cause of whiplash injuries. Not all whiplash symptoms present immediately after the accident. Sometimes it can take days, weeks or months before the affects of the whiplash injury are felt. Some of the common whiplash symptoms experienced by individual patients include those listed below.

• Neck pain, tenderness, tightness or stiffness
• Neck pain that worsens with movement
• Decreased range of motion in the neck
• Headaches located at the base of the skull
• Dizziness
• Shoulder pain
• Upper back or arm pain
• Fatigue
• Stabbing or shooting pains
• Numbness or tingling going down the arms
