Whiplash Could Permanently Impact Your Quality of Life
It only takes a second to develop whiplash. However, the effects can persist for a lifetime.
Your nervous system is quite delicate and sensitive. Whiplash can damage many of the nervous system’s key elements, including the bones of the spine and the discs between them, their muscles, nerves, and more.

Fish Creek Chiropractic offers whiplash treatment to help rehabilitate your nervous system after a whiplash injury.
Sudden neck movements, particularly back-and-forth movements, can injure the fragile structure of the spine and its surrounding tissues. We call this kind of injury “whiplash” for the way the head snaps like the end of a whip.
Whiplash injuries are common when you are suddenly stopped after moving quickly, or when you are quickly and forcibly moved from a stationary position. Car accidents are one of the most common causes of whiplash.
In some cases, with treatment, patients recover from whiplash within a few weeks. However, the effects of whiplash can last for years.
Symptoms of whiplash may include:
- Tingling in the arms
Because symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or months to manifest, it is easy to dismiss your injury as something minor. Too often, people don’t seek treatment following a car accident because they don’t feel hurt. By far, the most common injury to the neck is a whiplash injury.
