South Valley Chiropractor for Whiplash Relief
Need a chiropractor for whiplash relief in the South Valley of Albuquerque? If you’ve recently been in a car accident, especially if you were rear-ended, and you’re experiencing pains, you could be suffering from whiplash. Often after auto accidents, what starts out as a nagging discomfort, slowly turns into more serious health problems that can begin to affect both your work and home life.
What is Whiplash?
Whiplash creates neck and back pain, headaches, or even numbness and tingling in your hands and toes. Very shortly after impact, in just milliseconds, the cervical spine undergoes what is called an “S-shaped curve.” This is as opposed to simply being curved to the front in a normal “C-shape,” as it would normally be at rest. The lower part of the cervical spine moves into extension (bent backward) and the upper part of the cervical spine moves into flexion (bent forward). When a whiplash accident occurs, the lower part of the cervical spine moves too far beyond its normal range of motion, causing the potential for injury to the ligaments and discs in that area.
