An Overview of Whiplash from Achieve Health and Wellness

At Achieve Health and Wellness, patients come to see us for Bolingbrook chiropractor services following sports injuries, work injuries, and even auto accident injuries. We know that everyone places safety first when they get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle; however, a car accident can happen at any time. People can suffer an auto accident injury from even tiny car accidents that happen in the parking lot or driveway. When patients come to see us following an auto accident, one of the most common injuries we see is called whiplash. There are a few important points that everyone should keep in mind regarding this common injury.


What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is the name given to a common injury that people suffer following a motor vehicle accident. In a car accident, there are rapid changes in momentum as the car gets knocked around. Rapid shifts from side to side can cause the neck to snap back and forth quickly. When this happens, the ligaments in the neck and upper back can become sprained. This is how whiplash happens.

If someone has whiplash following a car accident, there are a few symptoms that may develop. First, people will notice that their neck is stiff. They might have trouble moving it from side to side. People might even notice that their shoulders are a bit restricted as well. If people try to stretch the neck, they might experience pain. This pain might even manifest as shooting pains that travel down the arms. All of these are signs that medical care is needed.

How is Whiplash Treated?

When someone comes to see us for medical care at Achieve Health and Wellness, we will take a full history. We want to know when the accident happened, where you were sitting, and when the symptoms showed up. Then, we will conduct a physical exam. Finally, we will come up with a treatment plan. This might include chiropractic manipulations, spinal decompression, and even physical therapy. We will tailor our treatment plan to meet your needs. We want to not only treat your symptoms but also prevent them from ever coming back. Rely on us to help you make a full recovery.

    Dr. Fisher and his staff are the best. They will deisgn a plan to better health. They will work with you to make it affordable and you will see results. If you have been to other chiropractors in the past or never gone to one before, this is the place to go.

    Since starting my new plan with Dr. Fisher, my neck and lower back are much improved. He has even adjusted my arms and hands resulting in less tingling…Patient care and well being is their mission.
