Whiplash Treatment From Our Chiropractor

Whiplash is Common in an Auto Accident Injury

When you are involved in an auto accident, one of the most common injuries is a neck injury called whiplash. That sudden impact can cause your head to whip backward and forward in a violent manner. It happens quickly and can cause damage to soft tissue. Dr. Lichfield and our team at Cornerstone Chiropractic in Everett can help.

The Most Common Whiplash Symptoms

After an auto accident, you should always check with a doctor to determine if you have been injured, regardless of how you feel. You may have suffered injuries that don’t show up immediately. Whiplash victims may feel pain or symptoms right after impact, but it can also take hours or even days before the symptoms show up.

Whiplash-associated disorders manifest in a variety of symptoms that can affect your lifestyle:

  • Neck pain or stiffness
  • Neck instability or lock
  • A reduced range of motion or pain in movement
  • Headaches
  • Shoulder or upper back pain
  • Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the neck

Tingling, weakness, and numbness may extend from your neck and shoulders all the way into your arm and hands. Less common symptoms such as dizziness, concussion, TMJ or jaw problems, and even vision problems can also be related to whiplash.
