Whiplash FAQs

If you have recently been involved in an auto accident or a traumatic incident, you may experience the symptoms of whiplash. Musculoskeletal pains in and around the neck are often referred to as whiplash. Our team at Brainard Chiropractic in Fremont has gathered a few questions that we run into from our patients regarding whiplash.

What Causes Whiplash?

When the head and neck are forced in multiple directions suddenly, it causes injuries due to severe hyperextension and hyperflexion of the neck. Many significant impacts that bring your body but not your head to a sudden stop may result in whiplash. Auto accidents and sports injuries are the most common causes of whiplash. With auto accidents, even injuries that occur at low speeds can result in whiplash.

What Harm Does Whiplash Cause?

Whiplash causes a range of injuries along with torn muscles in the shoulder and neck region. In some cases, the cervical vertebra becomes misaligned, which limits your joint movement. Whiplash affects many parts of the neck due to the dislocation of the cervical vertebrae. It impairs the functioning of your joints and causes the discs to herniate. In some cases, the connective tissues and neck muscles will become sprained or strained.

Does Chiropractic Care Help with Whiplash?

Chiropractic care is a non-invasive treatment used to deal with injured cervical joints by addressing the root cause of the pain. It helps with the proper alignment of the spine, to relieve joint pain and restore flexibility. Dr. Brainard also uses spinal decompression to position the herniated discs properly, which helps the healing process. We may also use other treatment modalities to provide additional pain relief for your whiplash.
