Spanish Fork Whiplash Treatment
Whiplash is an injury to the neck due to a sudden distortion or extension of the neck, when the neck experiences a sudden acceleration-deceleration motion. Muscles in the neck and back are overextended and can lead to symptoms from mild to severe pain from stiffness and inflammation in muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments. Headaches, migraines, fatigue, dizziness can lead to an overall feeling of being unwell.
Whiplash is a relatively common injury; however, it is often ignored or neglected due to lack of understanding of the condition. While some symptoms can occur immediately after the injury, some symptoms are often are not felt until days later. The most common effects of whiplash are pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders and back, headaches, pain and weakness in the arm, dizziness, fatigue.
Spinal and Back Pain Treatment
Extreme care must used in cases with injuries to the neck and back. For within the spine is the core of highly sensitive and valuable nerves of the spinal cord. Around the spinal cord are discs, vertebrae, tendons, ligaments and muscles to protect the vulnerable spinal cord. However, through accident or injury, if one of the vertebrae or discs becomes displaced, immense pain can result as well as the fact that the spinal cord is vulnerable to pressure and permanent nerve damage.
Symptoms may include numbness or pain in the hip, leg, or foot. Furthermore, if left without treatment for an extended time, pain may increase and permanent nerve damage may result with a loss of feeling in that limb. Pain or anti-inflammatory medication may help alleviate pain symptoms or reduce swelling; however it is important to treat the actual cause with Spanish Fork chiropractic treatment.
