Whiplash Dangers and Treatments

Chiropractic Redondo Beach CA Whiplash

Whiplash is a term used to describe neck pain that results from a sudden movement in the neck. Whiplash is frequently caused by a car accident, but can also occur from trauma in sports, or a blow to the head. When whiplash is left untreated, pain from the neck can spread to the surrounding extremities, leading to further physical damage as well as psychological symptoms of depression and anxiety. Our doctors at Catalina Medical Center want patients to be in their best shape mentally and physically, if you experience symptoms of whiplash, call us immediately.

Fortunately, whiplash isn’t a life-threatening condition, but it can be problematic if not treated promptly. Whiplash may leave a person feeling dizzy and can cause shoulder pain, headaches, fatigue, and back pain. Treatment for whiplash will depend on the variety of symptoms the patient has but usually consists of hand manipulation. Spinal manipulation techniques can increase the range of motion and improve overall mobility.
