3 Symptoms of Whiplash

At O’Connor Family Wellness Chiropractic we get a lot of patients who experience whiplash, whether it be from an automobile accident, an amusement park experience gone bad, your latest bout with the bumper cars, or any other activity that leaves you in pain.

If you’re experiencing whiplash, it’s important to see a chiropractic care specialist for a drug-free solution. Below we go over some of the symptoms of whiplash.

1.) Pain or Tenderness in the Back or Neck (Or Both)

After an accident or injury, if you’re experiencing pain or sensitivity in the back or neck, you may very well have whiplash.

2.) Limited Mobility/Range of Motion

If you’re having trouble turning or craning your neck like you normally do, this is a common symptom of whiplash.

3.) You’re Experiencing Headaches

Headaches are also a common symptom of whiplash that many patients experience.

Most whiplash injuries can typically take anywhere from 12-24 hours to fully develop. Even after the incident any pain or swelling can take time to manifest. Just like with many injuries, whiplash injuries tend to feel worse the day after the initial incident.

If you believe you’ve experienced whiplash and need a drug-free solution, contact O’Connor Family Wellness Chiropractic today. We have a long track record of keeping our patients healthy and well!
