Each year, over three million people experience Whiplash injury throughout the United States as a result of a car accident.
Not only is Whiplash one of the more challenging conditions to treat, but it is also the most common injury our Jonesboro car accident Chiropractors address on a regular basis.
Your neck serves as the most sensitive part of the spine.
The neck is responsible for supporting the weight of your head on what’s considered to be a fragile network of vertebrae supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Even a car accident where the driver(s) are moving as slow as 5 miles per hour (mph) can lead to a variety of chronic conditions that affect your neck.
As a car accident takes place, your body and head are suddenly subjected to a particular level of force that causes both extremities to lunge in multiple directions. This environment causes the vertebrae in the neck to press against each other, while also overstraining the surrounding muscles and other connective tissues.
One of the reasons why most medical physicians consider Whiplash to be one of the more challenging conditions to treat is because of how long it can take for any symptoms to appear.
Depending on the extent of your accident, you may not notice anything out of the usual for several days, if not weeks or months.
This is why so many Whiplash injuries go unreported, and why so many car accident victims suffer for months, even years with chronic conditions such as:
