Chiropractic Care and Whiplash

whiplash One of the most common causes of whiplash is a rear-end collision accident. The head is suddenly jerked back and forth beyond its normal limits. This causes the ligaments and muscles that support the head and spine to become overstretched or torn. The discs between the spinal bones can become torn, ruptured, or bulge. This will force the vertebrae to be out of position and limit the range of motion.

This condition can cause headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, pain in the shoulders, arms and hands, reduce your ability to turn or bend, and may even cause lower back pain. Symptoms may not be present for weeks or even months because the body will try to adjust.

Dr. Lindstrom will approach this condition with chiropractic adjustments. This will help to return the spine to normal functions and quickly get you back to the life you were used to leading before your accident.

Do not live with chronic headaches, take addictive medications or undergo surgery before consulting Dr. Lindstrom.
