Whiplash, Neck Pain, Neck Ache, Back Pain, Back Ache, Headache, Headaches, Migraine, Migraines, accident, car accident, Neck Injury, Neck Trauma, Sports AccidentIt is true that car accidents are one of the main reasons for someone to be diagnosed with whiplash. In fact, being hit at speeds as low as 5 mph can cause whiplash. This is slower than many people run. In fact, the fastest man in the world runs up to 28 mph.

However, there are a number of other reasons that a person may experience whiplash. One major symptom that may indicate one has had whiplash is having abnormal headaches begin suddenly. Whiplash can be the result of any kind of trauma to the head or neck that causes the ligaments in the neck to move beyond their normal range of motion. This includes turning the head too quickly or moving in an odd position. Here is a list of some more ways in which whiplash can occur:

Why It is Important to Seek the Care of an Upper Cervical Chiropractor for Whiplash

One thing that often occurs due to whiplash is a misalignment in the upper bones of the neck. If either the atlas or axis vertebra is misalignment by as little as ¼ of a millimeter, it can cause major problems within the body. This type of misalignment puts pressure on the brainstem and hinders signals being sent between the brain and body.

By seeking the care of an upper cervical chiropractor, one can be sure whether he has a misalignment causing some of his health problems. If so, a gentle technique that does not require popping or forcing the spine into alignment can be used. This low force adjustment allows the bones to move back into place naturally, giving the body a chance to begin healing the damage done. This is a vital step in recovering from the ill effects of whiplash.

Whiplash, Neck Pain, Neck Ache, Back Pain, Back Ache, Headache, Headaches, Migraine, Migraines, accident, car accident, Neck Injury, Neck Trauma Enduring whiplash can be hard, especially if there is no time for a person to stop and recover. Bills need to be paid, the children need to be cared for, the house needs to be cleaned, and the boss wants to see improvement in work projects. Who has time to cope with pain? It may seem easiest just to put some ice on it and hope it goes away. While ice is a great idea and can help reduce swelling, a person may have to take one step further to find relief and prevent future problems from arising.

There is a real possibility that the force of the accident could have caused one of the top two bones of the upper neck to misalign. These bones are responsible for holding the head in the proper position, and they help it to be flexible. Because of the flexibility, it is also an area that is prone to misalignments. The hyperextension of the neck, called whiplash, could have done some damage to the spinal canal. This is the space in the vertebrae where the spinal cord runs through and meets up with the brainstem.

Whiplash and Fibromyalgia

It may sound odd, but a whiplash injury can lead to fibromyalgia and other serious pain conditions later in life. How is this possible? It is due to the damage done to the spinal canal and, in turn, to the brainstem. If the misalignment isn’t corrected, signals to and from the brain and body are distorted, and this wreaks havoc on the body. The problems in the neck can manifest as stiffness and burning in the shoulders, hips, lower back, and a number of other places. It can lead to sleepless nights, irritability, and much more. So, what should a person do?

Even if the car accident was more than a decade ago, it is important to find out if a misalignment is still present. At Premier Family Wellness, we examine our patients’ necks for such misalignments. Then we work with them to correct the problem using a gentle method called the Blair technique.
