Whiplash

 If you have been in a car accident, you know just how scary it can be. Even if you feel alright walking away from the accident, many times, an auto accident injury can develop within days of the accident. Whiplash is a common auto accident injury that can be treated with chiropractic care. If you live in Allston, Boston, or the surrounding areas, contact our chiropractor at Mael Chiropractic for treatment for your whiplash injury.

What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is an injury that usually occurs in a car accident or the result of a sports injury. Technically speaking, whiplash is a sprain or strain of the soft tissues and muscles in the neck. The sprain occurs when the neck muscles are pushed too far past their range of motion, straining the muscle. This type of injury usually occurs when a person is hit from behind, forcing the head and neck violently forward and then backward. Although it is rare, whiplash can also lead to disc injuries and minor fractures in the neck bones.

The Symptoms of Whiplash

The most common symptom of whiplash is pain. Depending on the severity of the injury, the pain can be dull and aching or sharp and stabbing. Many people will feel stiffness in their neck and experience a limited range of motion. For some, whiplash may create a headache or feelings of nausea. These symptoms typically only last 48-72 hours, but some people experience the pain and symptoms for weeks.
