In the United States alone, more than 3 million new cases of whiplash are reported each year. Of these cases, over half also reported some degree of chronic injury. All too often, people get into these “minor” injuries and do nothing about it. They presume that it will go away on its own in due time. However, that’s just not the case for most whiplash incidents. Whether you are in an auto accident or even some sort of sporting accident, whiplash can cause some major damage. So no matter how big or small it feels at the time, if you experience whiplash you should be evaluated regardless. In the South Minneapolis area, Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness has you covered.

What is Whiplash?

It’s very easy to overlook whiplash, especially after an auto accident. Many times people are too shaken up and their adrenalin is pumping high enough so you don’t even feel the pain until the next day. Whiplash occurs when you have a very swift extension and flexion of the neck simultaneously. This does damage to the muscles, ligaments, and the tendons that are there to protect your spine and support your head. Therefore, it’s very common to see whiplash after even the smallest fender bender.

Symptoms of Whiplash

So many think that in order to have whiplash, you must have pain in your neck. While that is a very common symptom, it’s not the only one. Whiplash can cause neck pain, headaches, fatigue, upper back pain, shoulder pain, low back pain, TMJ issues, and even just your standard reduced range of motion. It can manifest in many different ways and it takes an expert to help alleviate your pain.
