Whiplash is a common ailment that causes the neck muscles to overextend. The muscles, tendons, connective tissue, and ligaments in the body support the spine and keep it from collapsing. When a person endures whiplash, the tissue begins to weaken and break down the spine causing it to lock into a position of stress.

The more it stays in this position, the more damage is done to muscles, discs, and joints. These begin to wear down. Therefore, if a person has been in a car accident a long time ago and did not have his whiplash treated properly, he can just now begin to see the effects happening. One such result is degenerative disc disease.

Degenerative disc disease is the wearing down of bones and surrounding muscles, ligaments, and tissue. Often this occurs with age, but it is exacerbated by a previous injury. If a person suffered from whiplash, even if it was many years ago, it is important to seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor.

Upper Cervical Chiropractors Take On Whiplash Problems

Success has been seen in relieving patients with degenerative disc disease due to whiplash. When a person experiences whiplash, the C1 and C2 vertebrae often move out of alignment. This area of the neck is able to provide a large range of motion for a person.

However, this does cause it to be more easily damaged. A misalignment here can affect a person’s posture and causes the brain and the body to no longer communicate properly. This leads to a number of different health problems.

I use a gentle, scientific procedure that works along with the body and its natural ability to heal itself. By balancing the head on the spine and realigning the vertebrae, the body can once again begin to operate at its optimum. The long-lasting effects of whiplash may be helped, and a person can continue leading a happy and healthy life.
