Correcting the Underlying Cause of Whiplash

whiplash-driver2-800You may be one of the lucky people to have been in a car accident and walked away feeling fine.  However, the assumption shouldn’t be made that an immediate lack of pain means that the impact did not damage any of the underlying tissues or structure.  Whiplash gets its name because during a car accident or other trauma, the head quickly accelerates forwards and backwards in a whipping motion.  Your neck is only designed to move in a specific range of motion, and whiplash goes past those normal barriers causing damage to neck muscles and ligaments, as well as misalignments in the bones of the neck. 


After effects of a motor vehicle accidents may not show up until days or weeks afterward, so sometimes people may not associate them with the accident.  A person may have ringing in the ears or dizzy spells weeks after, but may not see those symptoms as being connected to the incident.  What complicates things further is when misalignments sustained during the accident are allowed to go uncorrected.

Many people find their way to neck pain specialists Drs. Todd and Cristi Osborne when they realize that the effects they are experiencing can be traced back to either a car accident or other types of neck trauma, such as a sports injury or a slip and fall.  The Osbornes are able to recognize misalignments caused by these incidents and gently correct them over time.  The restoration of normal structure also allows for optimal tissue healing, so tender muscles and damaged ligaments are able to recover once the structure of the neck is back to normal.  An uncorrected misalignment can lead to many further complications down the road, such as migraines, vertigo, jaw pain, and more.
