Whiplash is a common condition that is often ignored or undertreated due to a poor understanding of the condition. While car accidents are frequently associated with whiplash, whiplash can occur after sports injuries as well. The symptoms of whiplash include neck or shoulder stiffness, neck pain, or reduced movements of the neck. It is important to seek professional help if you suspect that you are suffering from whiplash. A Chiropractor is a healthcare expert trained to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions such as whiplash and neck pain.

FAQ on Whiplash
Whiplash usually occurs after a high-velocity impact from the back. It is most common in car accidents and can also happen during contact sports play. The mechanism of injury causes the neck to be forced beyond its usual range of motion to cause injuries to joints, ligaments, and muscles of the neck.
The symptoms of Whiplash may occur immediately after or a few days after the initial incident. They include:
- Neck pain or stiffness
- Shoulder pain or stiffness
- Reduced range of motion in the neck
- Back pain
While Whiplash is seldom a life-threatening condition, it is often mistreated and results in a prolonged period of partial disability. Chiropractors are healthcare experts trained to help you manage Whiplash.
