Decades of Whiplash Treatment at West Hartford Chiropractic
With over 30 years of experience, our West Hartford chiropractic team—led by Dr. Moshe Laub, Dr. Anderson Hart, and Dr. Christopher Loy—have met hundreds of people whose lives have been derailed by whiplash syndrome. This condition is common after auto accidents, sports injuries, personal injuries, or other incidents involving physical trauma. Fortunately, natural pain relief is possible through the individualized chiropractic care we provide at West Hartford Chiropractic.
What's the Deal With Whiplash?
Picture a whip cracking. This rapid back and forth movement is similar to what happens to your neck in rear-end collisions and other events which cause your body to suddenly stop moving or change direction.
This whip-like movement is the primary cause of whiplash syndrome. It's hallmarked by irritation and tissue damage in the nerves, muscles, bones, joints, discs, ligaments, tendons, and fascia in and around the cervical spine.
Common Warning Signs of Whiplash
Typically, symptoms and signs of whiplash develop within one day after an auto accident or whatever incident triggered the neck strain. These may include:
- Neck pain (constant or intermittent; mild, moderate, or severe)
- Neck stiffness
- Shoulder stiffness, tenderness, and pain
- Numbness and tingling in one or both arms
- Jaw pain and dysfunction
- Memory, mood, and sleep dysfunction
Keep in mind that symptoms sometimes start showing up days, weeks, or months after the precipitating incident, during which time the underlying injury may simply be getting worse.
There's a lesson here: consult with a chiropractor as soon as you can after an accident, even if you feel perfectly normal. Our West Hartford chiropractor staff can identify hidden signs of inflammation, joint misalignment (with the use of advanced technology such as direct digital cesium X rays), and tissue injury—then address these even before symptoms show up or get worse.
