Whiplash Chiropractor in Hillsboro, OR

If you have recently been in an auto accident and are in pain, you could be suffering from whiplash. This particular injury is caused when the head is whipped from the back to the front quickly. When a car gets rear-ended, the primary injury is whiplash. You can also experience whiplash from trauma, falls, abuse, or other types of accidents.

Many people who were involved in a car accident do not even realize they have received a whiplash injury until weeks or months later. Often, the injury becomes a problem because the pain becomes persistent and eventually leads to other issues. If you are experiencing any pain after an auto accident, you need to seek neck pain treatment in Hillsboro, OR, immediately.


Whiplash in Hillsboro

When the neck is whipped from back to front during a collision, playing contact sports like football, or occasionally from physical trauma, a number of things can happen to the spine and surrounding tissue. You need to visit a whiplash chiropractor in Hillsboro, OR, for relief.

Whiplash describes the initial impact, but the results can include:

  • Disc bulges and herniation
  • Subluxations (misalignment of the vertebrae in the spine),
  • Injured bones in the spine,
  • Irritated and damaged nerves
  • Pulled ligaments and muscles in the neck

What are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

Whiplash injuries can range from mild to very severe. Injuries tend to be more significant when your headrest is positioned too low. If the impact was quite severe or the headrest was low there is the possibility that bones are broken or tissue is damaged. It is highly recommended that you see a chiropractor and receive a thorough examination and x-rays. Even if the impact seemed mild, you may have whiplash if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder, upper back, and arm pain
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Pain when turning the head
  • Inability to move or turn the head fully
  • Dizziness
  • Tiredness
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms, hands, and fingers
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Depression

As you can see there are a wide range of symptoms and not all of them may be immediately traceable to whiplash. Even if you have been cleared by a doctor, your pain could still be related to whiplash and you may need treatment to correct the problem. If you have recently been injured it's important to get your spine checked as soon as possible. The sooner that you start treating the issue the less chance you have of it developing into a long-term problem.
