Whiplash Symptoms

Whiplash Symptoms

Whiplash is a type of neck injury that is caused by the neck bending forcibly forward and backward or vice versa. This injury usually involves damage to discs, muscles, neck tendons, and nerves. In most cases, this injury is a result of an auto accident or a sports injury. At Duben Holistic Chiropractic Center, we have years of experience providing residents of Westlake Village, CA with natural and effective whiplash treatment.

What Are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

The most common symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Neck stiffness
  • Dizziness
  • Pain in your hand or arm
  • Low back pain
  • Blurred vision
  • Irritability
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Sleeplessness
  • Memory or concentration problems
  • Tiredness
  • Numbness in arms or hands

How Is It Diagnosed?

Most whiplash injures are diagnosed using the following diagnostic methods:

  • X-Ray: Our chiropractor may take an x-ray to see the extent of spinal damage you are suffering from following a traumatic injury.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): A computer and large magnets will create clear and detailed images of soft tissue structures and organs.
  • Computer Tomography (CT): This technology is used for creating horizontal or axial images of the body. A computer tomography scan shows detailed images of any part of the body, including muscles, organs, bones, and even fat. CT scans are much more detailed than regular X-rays.

Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash

Chiropractic treatment is known as one of the most effective ways of treating a whiplash injury. Our chiropractor may use the following techniques to reduce your pain, restore your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural ability to heal itself:

  • Flexion-distraction technique
  • Specific spinal manipulation
  • Instrument-assisted manipulation

Chiropractic adjustments performed will depend on the cause and severity of your whiplash injury.
