Neck pain resulting from an auto accident is usually what is referred to as whiplash. Whiplash is a condition that occurs when the neck is forcefully propelled forward and then back very quickly and is not necessarily the product of an auto accident. However, car accidents are the most common cause of whiplash. At Dr. Phillips Chiropractic, Nutrition and Wellness, your San Antonio chiropractor, neck pain from any cause is assessed and treated holistically.
Not all neck pain from auto accidents is considered whiplash, but neck strains and sprains often present similar symptoms and may be treated in similar ways. The most common symptoms of whiplash or neck strain or sprain are:
There are actually many different possible symptoms of whiplash, but most of them do not occur without simultaneous pain and stiffness. Some of the rarer symptoms of whiplash include blurred vision, ringing in the ears, and depression.
Whiplash symptoms may not develop immediately after an accident. In most cases, symptoms do start to occur within the first 24-hour period, though. Some of the symptoms may worsen over the next few days, especially stiffness and reduction in the range of motion.
Not seeking treatment immediately means delaying your recovery. Prompt chiropractic care can help you be more comfortable and ensure that your injury heals as quickly as possible. A chiropractor in San Antonio can perform hands-on treatments such as spinal adjustments, but they can also give you advice about at-home treatments for both discomfort and proper healing.
Untreated, whiplash can take over six months to resolve and some cases turn into chronic pain. Medical treatment can offer palliatives such as pain medication, but chiropractic care can offer true healing. There is no timetable for recovery that applies to everyone, but whiplash generally responds well to chiropractic care and heals more quickly when properly treated.
