Whiplash Treatments

CWhiplash refers to a specific neck injury that typically happens when your neck is suddenly and forcefully moved. The movement or motion that can cause whiplash, as its name implies, mimics the action of a cracked whip. This strong motion can cause muscle, nerve, and connective tissue damage throughout the neck and even the upper back areas. Dr. Philip Buchovecky of the Albany Chiropractic Clinic offers whiplash treatments and chiropractic care that focuses on auto injury cases in the greater Albany, OR, area.

What Causes Whiplash?

A whiplash injury occurs when your neck or head is rapidly accelerated and decelerated. The most common whiplash injury happens to someone who is in a vehicle that has been rear-ended by another vehicle in motion. The seriousness of a whiplash injury and the available whiplash treatments are contingent on several factors that include -

  • The direction of the cars in the accident.  
  • The speed of the vehicles involved.
  • The age, gender, and physical status of the individual who sustained a whiplash injury.  

However, it is not uncommon for whiplash to occur due to a traumatic fall or an injury suffered while playing contact sports. 

The Symptoms of Whiplash

Whiplash is a tricky type of injury because its related symptoms may not show up for a day, a week, or even longer. So, even if you are asymptomatic after a car crash – that is, you exhibit no apparent injuries or discomfort, it is crucial NOT to assume you are injury-free.

A good decision is to seek a medical or chiropractic evaluation if you suspect you have injured your neck because by not doing so, you may create the possibility of a chronic condition that requires a lifetime of care.

Common whiplash symptoms include -

  • Neck stiffness or pain when moving.
  • Neck and upper back tenderness.
  • Headaches and blurred vision.
  • Ringing in the ears.
  • Limited range of motion.
  • Tiredness and lack of focus.
  • Fluctuating sleep patterns.
  • Tingling sensations in one/both arms.
  • Dizziness or vertigo.

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Electrotherapy
  • Rehabilitation exercises, and more.
