A common injury from an auto accident is whiplash and there are a variety of symptoms associated with it. Whiplash is caused when the neck is forced forward into extension and then violently forced backward into hyperflexion. The whiplash can damage the tissues, discs, and paravertebral muscle. It can also change the normal cervical curve, or arch of life, therefore adding pressure to the brain stem and spinal cord. Chiropractic care rehabilitates and helps restore the natural cervical curve, improving brain and body connection.
