There are many causes of whiplash
Whiplash is often caused by an abrupt jerking motion such as that which can occur in car accidents, falls, and contact sports. Symptoms can range anywhere from mild to severe, including headaches, neck stiffness, dizziness, limited range of motion, decreased performance and physical strength, blurred vision, and ringing in the ears. A chiropractor is often the first go-to for those who have experienced whiplash, as chiropractic care can be helpful in relieving both pain and inflammation. Other effective treatments include physiotherapy and massage therapy, both of which can help reduce recovery time and minimize any long-term effects associated with whiplash injury.

What are the symptoms of whiplash?
Whiplash is a type of neck injury caused by sudden and forceful back-and-forth motion of the head and neck. It is often seen in car accidents. Those affected can experience a number of symptoms, including tenderness and stiffness in the neck, chronic headaches, pain that radiates down to the arms and shoulders, dizziness or vertigo, fatigue, trouble sleeping or concentrating, ringing in ears (tinnitus), muscle spasms, blurred vision and depression.
What are the treatments for whiplash?
Treatments for whiplash vary depending on the individual, however chiropractic care, physiotherapy and massage therapy are some of the first steps in treating this condition. Chiropractors can gently adjust any misaligned vertebrae to help restore normal movement and reduce symptoms related to whiplash. Physiotherapy may also be beneficial as it can strengthen the muscles in the neck which in turn can improve stability and reduce tension. Massage therapy is a holistic approach that seeks to physically break up scar tissue often developed after injury, encouraging it to heal correctly and reducing pain. For many with mild cases of whiplash, these treatments may be enough to return them back to optimal health.
