Whiplash treatment is one of the most common reasons why patients see a chiropractor. Whiplash can be caused by anything from a car accident to falling and hitting your head on something. If you have whiplash, you may be tempted to simply wait it out. You may be surprised to know that it can be dangerous to leave whiplash untreated. If you have neck pain and suspect that you may have whiplash, we encourage you to call Preferred Family Chiropractic today for immediate treatment.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash occurs when a person’s neck is forced back and forth very fast, often by force. The condition creates mild to severe pain in the neck and shoulders. In many cases, whiplash resolves on its own in a matter of days or weeks. In other cases, however, you may have months or years of pain. Because of this, it is important to seek treatment for your whiplash injuries before your condition becomes chronic.

What Happens If You Don’t Treat Whiplash?

Untreated whiplash can easily lead to frequent, severe headaches. This is a result of the shoulder pain and tension that is caused by your neck injury. The condition may also make it incredibly difficult to move your neck or shoulders. This is due to the inflammation that occurs at the site of the injury. Left untreated, many patients lose their range of motion and may feel pain when moving their neck. In even more extreme cases, untreated whiplash can cause mental confusion in patients, as well as irritability. Pain can make it much more difficult to sleep, causing increased stress in your day-to-day life.
