Whiplash near Rockville-Norbeck, MD

What is Whiplash near Rockville-Norbeck, MD?

Neck pain? Whiplash can be caused by a variety of things like motor vehicle accidents, a fall, athletic injury, even amusement park rides. woman-working-with-neck-pain-sq-300

When most people hear the word, “whiplash,” they immediately think of a rear-end car accident. But there are other ways that whiplash injuries can occur, including:

  • Assault, such as being punched or shaken
  • Roller coaster rides
  • Sports, especially football or boxing
  • Falls

 

Whiplash occurs when the cervical spine (neck) is stretched beyond its normal range of motion in a forward (flexion), backward (extension) or sideways movement. This causes the discs between the vertebrae, along with their associated muscles, tendons and ligaments to be stretched or torn, resulting in symptoms such as:

  • Neck pain, stiffness or tenderness
  • Headache and dizziness
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Muscle spasms
  • Irritability and memory loss
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears

 

Symptoms of whiplash and related pain can show up immediately or up to 72 hours after the impact that caused the injury near the Rockville-Norbeck, MD areas. And the pain and discomfort can last for months, even years.

Chiropractic can help near Rockville-Norbeck

If you or someone you know has had an injury, they may benefit from chiropractic care. People often down play the extent of their injuries initially after an accident. This can cause serious problems later on as most of the injury is to the disc and facet joints. Chiropractic adjustments return neck joints affected by whiplash to their normal position to relieve stress on affected nerves and strain on affected muscles. Don’t let an accident or injury go unchecked. Call our office today!
