Patients suffering from whiplash may experience severe neck pain. Whiplash is caused by a rapid back and forth movement in the neck, and is often the result of an auto accident. Dr. Jason Cozart opened PA Chiropractic and Rehab Center in 2002 to provide residents of Waynesburg, PA, and the surrounding areas with holistic healing services. We have years of experience treating auto accident injuries including whiplash through chiropractic care.
If whiplash is the result of an auto accident injury, it is best to consult a chiropractor right away to get relief and to reduce the risk of long-term complications. Those that have whiplash may experience some of these signs and symptoms within a few days of an auto accident injury:
- Neck pain
- Impaired range of motion
- Headaches starting at the base of the skull
- Pain in the shoulders, upper back, and upper arms
- Tingling and numbness in the arms
- Feeling tired/fatigued
- Blurred vision
- Inability to sleep
- Difficulty concentrating/reading
- Difficulty remembering things
- Depression or anxiety
If you have any of these symptoms after being in a car accident or otherwise straining your neck, consider contacting our chiropractor as soon as possible.
Health Complications Resulting From Whiplash:
If left untreated, whiplash can result in a chronic pain condition. Those who are most at risk for whiplash complications include:
- Those that have had whiplash before
- Elderly patients
- Those already experiencing neck and back pain
