The Risk of Not Receiving Treatment for Whiplash

Written By Atlas Chiropractic & Wellness on October 16, 2019

Woman with whiplashHave you been involved in a car accident or suffer from a sports injury?

If so, seeking treatment in the form of chiropractic care is an excellent way to reduce or eliminate your neck or back pain from whiplash.

Why You Should Treat Whiplash Immediately

Car accidents, horseback riding, and physically taxing sports are all causes of whiplash.

Failing to seek treatment for your injury may result in the following:

  • Stiff Neck: The inability, or lack of range of motion, to move your head from side to side or front to back without pain.

  • Sore Back: Tense muscles and sore joints.

  • Tension Headaches: The feeling of a “band” that is wrapped around your head or pressure surrounding the head.

  • Tinnitus: A sharp ringing in the ears that may come and go but is not associated with outside noises.

  • Chronic Pain or Achiness: Feeling as if your body is achy or stiff all the time.

Whiplash patients who do not seek medical help often suffer from these symptoms for months, or even years after their initial injury. Those who seek care through chiropractic treatments are more likely to heal more quickly – within a few weeks in the most optimistic cases.
