When most people think of whiplash, they think of car accidents – and for good reason. Auto accidents are the number one cause of whiplash, which is not altogether surprising when you consider the way your body is forced to strain against your seatbelt and fight against the motion of your vehicle during an accident. At Caron Chiropractic Clinic, P.A., we’ve been in the chiropractic business since 1991, keeping St. Paul, Minnesota residents healthy and aligned. If you’re suffering from whiplash and need chiropractic pain relief, let the chiropractors at Caron Chiropractic Clinic help you on your way to feeling and functioning better.
Knowing the Causes of Whiplash
If you’ve recently been in a car accident, there’s a good chance that you sustained at least minor whiplash injuries. Because of the nature of a car accident, as the weight of your head is forced away from your body, “snapping” forward, your neck and back are likely to suffer from the strain and pressure. Car accidents aren’t the only cause of whiplash, though. Any major falls or abrupt movements can easily cause whiplash, leaving you with just as much pain as an auto accident could. If you’ve taken a fall and had the wind knocked out of you, felt your neck twinge as you danced, or even whipped your head around too fast, you should pay attention to your pain, and look for the warning signs of whiplash.
Recognizing Whiplash Symptoms
Our chiropractors constantly see patients suffering from whiplash with varied symptoms. While one patient might be feeling slight neck aches from time to time, another might suffer from constant and severe neck and back pain that extends into the arms. Whatever your symptoms, if you think you’ve suffered from whiplash, or even if you have the symptoms of whiplash and don’t remember taking any falls recently, you should consult our chiropractors immediately. Even if your accident was months ago, your body could still be suffering from whiplash, and your symptoms may not manifest until you’ve strained your body enough to be in pain from the initial whiplash.
