If you’ve ever been involved in a traumatic motor vehicle collision, you’re probably aware of just how painful it can be, especially in the area of the back and the neck. Statistics show that only 50% of the people involved in serious auto accidents never fully recover from their injuries, and that 25% of these same individuals will ultimately become disabled.
Obviously, whiplash injuries can be extremely serious and can have a major impact on your life. That’s why you should seek treatment immediately from your Northbrook whiplash chiropractor, if you’ve been involved in any kind of collision like this, and the place to go is the Align Wellness Center in Northbrook, Illinois. We have dealt with whiplash patients many times in the past, and we’ve had some outstanding success in reducing their pain, and in many cases completely eliminating it. Don’t take the chance of becoming one of those 25% of people who become permanently disabled after having been involved in a major automobile collision.
Symptoms of whiplash
How to tell if you are suffering from whiplash pain
If you’re not sure whether or not you have sustained a whiplash condition from an auto accident, or some other traumatic sudden impact, there are certain symptoms you can look for. Anytime you’ve been through an incident where your head gets violently jerked well beyond its standard range of motion, you may have undergone a whiplash incident. This is because the muscles and ligaments which typically provide support for the head, spine, and neck are very often stretched to the limit, and sometimes even completely torn as a result of the incident.
It’s also possible for the vertebrae of your spine to be wrenched out of their usual position, and that can cause tremendous pain for the individual. A typical scenario for developing whiplash is when a vehicle occupant is unexpectedly blindsided by another vehicle, causing all of that vehicle’s force to be transferred to the individuals in your car. Although this is a typical scenario, it is by no means the only way you can contract whiplash.
If you’re involved in contact sports for instance, you could experience whiplash by a sudden unexpected blow to the head or back. Here are some of the symptoms which are most commonly associated with whiplash:
- ringing in the ears
- nausea or vomiting
- extreme irritability
- vertigo or dizziness
- jaw pain
- shoulder pain or discomfort
- neck pain
- upper back pain
- lower back pain
- persistent headaches.
Northbrook chiropractors at Align Wellness Center can help you with non-invasive chiropractic care
If you notice any combination of these symptoms after a traumatic injury, you should seek chiropractic care immediately. In the vast majority of cases, soreness and pain from any kind of whiplash incident will not disappear all on its own. This is especially true if any of the vertebrae in your body have been knocked out of alignment, because proper alignment cannot be restored except through expert chiropractic care.
As you can see from the list of potential symptoms, anyone who goes through a whiplash incident will have a unique set of symptoms which they experience. Given the fact that anyone who undergoes a whiplash incident could have been in a very different position prior to the collision, any number of different injuries could occur to the body. What this means is that a customized treatment program must be developed for every individual who has undergone a whiplash incident.
However, there are some treatments which are generally effective at reducing or eliminating the pain that you may be going through. The first of these will be spinal adjustments, which can help restore proper alignment of the spine, thereby also reducing pressure on any nerve tissue in the surrounding area.
Therapeutic exercise will also be beneficial in most cases, as will soft tissue and muscle therapy. In some cases, lifestyle changes may be necessary as well, in order to expedite the healing process. Whatever is called for in your specific case, you can rest assured that the specialists at the Align Wellness Center will diagnose your underlying problem, and help you restore you to good health as soon as possible.
At Align Wellness Center, we offer chiropractic care, cold laser therapy, disc compression therapy, sciatica treatment, and so much more to relieve pain, restore spinal function, and restore structural integrity. Also, we offer wellness programs for those who are seeking to remain healthy in the long run.
