Whiplash injuries can be a nightmare. Emergency room doctors rule out life threatening conditions but often disregard painful soft tissue injuries of the neck and spine.This oversight can leave a person with nagging or even permanent whiplash symptoms such as:
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Low Back Pain
- Sleep Disturbance
- Disc Herniations
Symptoms of whiplash injuries like headaches and neck pain often show up long after your car has been repaired. Changes in the normal spinal curve of the neck shown below can lead to chronic neck pain and headaches. The normal curve should be between 20 and 40 degrees. The curve on the left was 5 degrees with a buckle of the arc midway. After rehab the buckle was gone and the curve measured 28 degrees. The patient's neck pain and headaches were 90% improved.
