What is Whiplash?
Whiplash is a very serious medical condition that has only recently become more understood. Whiplash creates neck and back pain, headaches, or even numbness and tingling in your hands and toes. When an 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. 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. To put it in simple terms, the lower part of the cervical spine moves bends backwards and the upper part of the cervical spine moves forward.
What can be Done to Treat Whiplash?
Whiplash pain can be treated! First, a series of neurological studies are performed.
