The Impact of Whiplash and Finding Help in Redwood City, CA

impact-whiplash-finding-help-redwood-city-caNearly 2 million people every year experience whiplash related to car accidents. But it’s important to recognize that not all of these accidents happened in major collisions. More often than not, this type of neck injury occurs at speeds as low as 5 mph. In fact, most car accidents happen at 12 mph. This means that most of those 2 million people who suffer from whiplash every year are involved in low-speed car accidents.

If whiplash can occur at 5 mph, then this type of neck injury can also occur in other activities such as a sports-related injury, a fall, or a physical altercation. German researchers Dr. Kaeser and Dr. Ettlin found that whiplash can lead to a number of different problems including hearing loss, dizziness, speech problems, and throat problems. These researchers also reported that through gentle adjustments to the upper neck vertebrae the effects of whiplash can most likely be reversed.

Healing Whiplash

Strength training, range-of-motion exercises, and physical therapy can help the muscles to regain their ability to adequately support the head and neck. However, if you or anyone you know was recently involved in a car accident or any other sort of accident that you could’ve possibly suffered a whiplash injury, we strongly encourage you to seek out an upper cervical chiropractor. Upper cervical chiropractors are trained to detect any type of misalignment that could be the underlying cause of your pain.

Here at Advanced Spinal Care, we use gentle techniques to readjust the upper two bones in your neck. If there is a misalignment with these two bones, the C1 or C2, it can have an adverse effect on the brainstem and the signals being sent to the body. A readjustment will aid in restoring your brain’s ability to communicate with your body, therefore allowing your body to begin to heal itself naturally.
