WHIPLASH IS ONE OF THE MOST COMMON INJURIES FROM A CAR ACCIDENT

HOW WHIPLASH HAPPENS

WHAT IS WHIPLASH?

Whiplash usually happens when an auto is rear-ended. When a car is hit from the back, then people in the front of the car may experience a rapid backward-forward movement in their head and neck. While the process of the injury is often called CAD “Cervical acceleration-deceleration”, the term WAD “whiplash associated disorders” describes the actual injury condition and symptoms.

The rapid movements injure the vertebrate, neck and back muscles, ligaments and the brain. Accidents as slow as 5 mph can result in whiplash. Dr. Hummel specializes in helping patients recover from whiplash injuries. Call Hummel Chiropractic at 314-838-8780 for an appointment and free consult about your injuries.

WHIPLASH INJURIES

NECK AND BACK

The most common areas of the spine affected by whiplash are the neck and middle of the spine. Neck and back pain, aching, soreness and stiffness can be expected for several weeks after the initial injury. It can linger up to several months depending on the impact of the accident.

SHOULDER

Sometimes whiplash is referred to as neck strain or sprain because it is a soft tissue injury. However, “neck” pain is also very common between the shoulder and the neck. The missing link of whiplash may be towards or inside the shoulder and explains why neck therapy alone does not give lasting relief.

HEAD AND LIMBS

Other symptoms reported by sufferers include headaches, blurred vision, and sensory disturbance like “pins and needles” to the arms and legs. Symptoms can appear directly after the injury, but often are not felt until days afterwards. Joint injuries may cause post-traumatic osteoarthritis.

COGNITIVE

Cognitive symptoms following whiplash trauma such as being easily distracted, dizziness, and irritability are common. Other side effects include memory loss, depression, sleep problems, and fatigue. We can help you with these areas of your health as part of your overall treatment and rehabilitation program.
