Whiplash Treatment in Garden City, MI
Perhaps the most dangerous aspect of whiplash is the time it takes for the individual to recognize or address that there is even an issue. Whiplash is often a result of motor vehicle accidents or high impact sports where your head is susceptible to intense movements, like football or boxing. Without early whiplash injury treatment, you will likely start to feel the injury manifest through other painful symptoms.
Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are forced backward and forward suddenly. This movement puts the cervical spine through extreme stresses and drastically-quick motions. While whiplash involves injury to the head and neck, it can result in a myriad of issues such as damaged or pinched nerves, spinal injuries, torn ligaments, and muscles, among other upper body ailments.
If you are experiencing extreme neck and upper body pain, decreased range of motion, ringing in the ears, headaches, or blurred vision, it is very likely you have sustained whiplash. As these can be fairly common symptoms from any range of activities, they are often overlooked and not addressed.
