Approximately three million people throughout the United States sustain Whiplash or some back injury as a result of a car accident.
Whiplash serves as the leading car accident injury and is also one of the most untreated conditions because symptoms may not appear for several weeks to a few months after the collision.
Whiplash Demands Immediate Chiropractic Treatment
Refusing to seek immediate Chiropractic treatment can easily lead to more critical, chronic conditions that develop over time.
If you are involved in a car accident, schedule an examination with our team of experienced Marietta car accident injury Chiropractors as soon as possible.
Understanding Whiplash Injury
Car accident victims develop Whiplash Injury as a result of being exposed to a sudden force that “whips” their neck in multiple directions.
When this happens, the tissue, ligaments, and tendons that surround your neck are stretched beyond their limits and become strained or tear. Most cases of Whiplash injuries are caused by rear-end collisions, usually when the victim is waiting at a stop sign or red light.
The sudden force that is exerted from an accident like this causes the neck to jerk back and forth past its normal limits.
Common Symptoms Connected to Whiplash Injury
Most car accident patients who sustain Whiplash experienced one or more of the following symptoms:
- Muscle stiffness
- Shoulder pain
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Arm pain and weakness
