Symptoms of Whiplash and How Your Chiropractor Can Help

Redondo Family Chiropractic is here for you if you've been in an accident. Whiplash is common after a car accident and Dr. Andrew Winger treats patients in Federal Way, WA, to restore range of motion and stop your pain.

What is whiplash?

Whiplash happens when the neck is overextended, and it can damage vertebrae, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves in your neck. The sudden and unnatural movement of the body during a car crash often causes whiplash but it can also come from a fall or other accident. Symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Pain in the neck
  • Pain in the arms, hands, shoulders, or upper back
  • Stiffness or limited range of motion
  • Muscle spasms
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Ringing in ears
  • Nausea
  • Numbness or a pins and needles feeling in your arms and hands

Come see us in Federal Way, WA, if you have been in a car accident or are experiencing any of these symptoms.

Whiplash treatment

Don't ignore symptoms of whiplash. If left untreated, it can lead to chronic pain. Your chiropractor can help you heal and relieve your pain with a series of adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments help realign the spine and neck to relieve pain caused by any herniated discs. Adjustments also help the healing process because manipulation helps improve circulation and blood flow to injured areas.

Whiplash symptoms can take some time to disappear completely, but a series of adjustments will improve your symptoms and speed up healing. Your chiropractor will also prescribe you exercises to do at home to rebuild strength and restore range of motion.

If you've been in a car crash or another accident that has left you with whiplash injuries, Dr. Winger of Redondo Family Chiropractic is here to help you. Contact us for an appointment in Federal Way, WA, at (253) 941-6977.
