Whiplash Treatment in Fresno: It’s About Time You Feel Better!
Each year nearly 3 million Americans suffer from ailments stemming from whiplash—and many never make the connection between continuing pain and their injury.
Whiplash is what people normally think of when they hear the words “auto accident,” but you can get whiplash any time your head is hyperextended (whipped backward) or hyperflexed (whipped forward), as in a bad fall or sports injury.
Symptoms of Whiplash Injury
The symptoms of whiplash can take weeks or months to develop, so many people don’t get checked after an injury because they aren’t hurting—yet.
Typical Symptoms Are:
- Shoulder and/or arm pain
- Numbness and/or tingling
- Tenderness and/or stiffness
- Blurred vision
If you’ve been injured or in an accident, please get an evaluation—even if you’re feeling well. Long-term complications from whiplash vary and can include tinnitus (ringing in the ears), vertigo (extreme dizziness upon standing), chronic pain syndromes, and more.
In fact, a study in the journal Neurology found that 7.8% of people with whiplash injury had not returned to their usual level of work or activity.
And remember, it’s not just car accidents that cause whiplash.
If you’re in Fresno, you may even experience an injury skateboarding, hiking, or surfing on a weekend at the coast.
Why Choose Chiropractic Care?
The best reason to choose chiropractic care for your whiplash injury is simple—it works.
Seeing a chiropractor is a great choice, since chiropractors deal specifically with injuries that affect the vertebrae of the spine and neck.
Studies show that spinal manipulation treats back and neck injuries successfully, in a way that provides not just local relief, but body-wide anti-inflammatory effects.
