Whiplash Can Lead to Disability

Written By ChiroConcepts of Plano West on May 28, 2021

Whiplash TreatmentThere’s a neck movement test that can predict within 94% accuracy which whiplash injuries will lead to disability within a year of a car accident. The less range of motion, the more pain, and the more intense your symptoms, like dizziness, nausea and blurred vision, the greater your chance of disability.

At ChiroConcepts in the Dallas Fort Worth area, we don’t want you to become disabled. We also want to make it abundantly clear that leaving whiplash untreated leaves you at risk for developing chronic conditions, including pain and headaches, loss of range of motion, and sets you up for future disc problems.

Chiropractic Care and Whiplash 

Whiplash is a soft tissue injury that--in the short term--can cause neck stiffness and pain, decreased range of motion, pain in the upper arms, back and shoulders, blurred vision, headaches, and more. 

Whiplash strikes approximately two-thirds of motor vehicle accident victims, often taking two days before symptoms set in. Whiplash moves the spine out of proper curvature. Between 45 and 85% of whiplash victims who didn’t see a doctor are still suffering years later.

Our chiropractors work to help restore range of motion in your neck and stop triggers causing pain, headaches and other whiplash symptoms. We help rehabilitate neck muscles, and expertly manipulate your spine to put everything back in place so your body can fully heal. We also prescribe at-home self care to complete and speed up the recovery process.
