Whiplash Treatment in Basildon
Whiplash is injury to the neck caused by a sudden backward, forward or sideways move of the head and whiplash injuries and many thousands of people suffer whiplash injuries every year following accidents. As a result of whiplash, the muscles and ligaments surrounding the spine can get stretched or torn, the discs between the vertebrae can tear or rupture, vertebrae get forced out of their natural position, and the spinal cord and nerve roots can become stretched and irritated. Whiplash treatment at Basildon Chiropractic can successfully relieve the pain associated with whiplash and stimulate your body to heal itself effectively.
The most common cause of whiplash is road traffic accidents. We often carry out whiplash treatment on patients who have suffered whiplash due to the force of the collision impact. It is very important to seek whiplash treatment as soon as possible if you have a car accident, even if you are not in very much pain. Whiplash symptoms can take years to develop, and often people do not seek neck pain treatment until complications develop. Seeking whiplash treatment early can help to prevent further pain and injury.
Symptoms of whiplash are not limited to neck pain – whiplash sufferers may also experience headaches; pain in the shoulder, arm, jaw or face; lower back pain or stiffness; numbness and tingling; blurred vision; fatigue; dizziness or nausea. If you experience any of these symptoms following an accident, book an urgent check-up with your chiropractors for an evaluation of your condition and a whiplash treatment plan.
