If you're one of the thousands of people every year involved in an auto accident, you could be dealing with a whiplash injury. This condition can impact you in many ways. It can impair your sleep, make it difficult to work, keep you out of the gym, and cause a lot of mental stress. At Mael Chiropractic, we're proud to provide chiropractic care in Allston, MA. 


What Exactly Is Whiplash? 

Imagine the way a whip moves. This snapping, undulating movement can happen to your neck if you experience a sudden deceleration or change of direction, such as what may happen in a car crash, fall, or even athletic event. The force can stretch and strain tissues in and around your cervical spine, leading to inflammation, tissue damage, and pain.

Any and all tissues within your spine can be affected by whiplash, including muscles, nerves, tendons, joints, and ligaments.

Top Warning Signs and Symptoms of Whiplash

The tricky thing about whiplash is that it doesn't always show up right away. Some people don't notice any signs or symptoms until a week after an accident, or even longer! Here are the top signs and symptoms of whiplash to look out for after any sort of accident:

  • Stiffness and pain in the neck
  • Shoulder and arm pain
  • Numbness and tingling in the arm, hand, or fingers
  • Headaches
  • Jaw pain and clicking
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Insomnia

How a West Palm Beach Chiropractor Helps People with Whiplash

Whiplash syndrome can be incredibly uncomfortable, and taking a "wait and see" approach could mean that your symptoms just grow worse. We recommend seeing a West Palm Beach chiropractor ASAP after any car accident or significant fall (even if you feel "fine"). We can assess your posture, perform diagnostic screens and tests, and help identify the specific issues you're dealing with related to your whiplash.

We can also get you going on a personalized treatment program that will reduce inflammation, restore neck joint alignment, relieve pain and swelling, and help you regain mobility. We do this all without drugs or invasive procedures, and instead focus on enhancing your body's ability to heal itself. Treatments like chiropractic adjustments, corrective exercise, postural re-training, and soft tissue massage can all be useful to help us achieve these objectives, and help you feel better than ever!

Dr. Mael is wonderful! I have had chronic back pain since I can remember and I've never felt so comfortable since. He's a great person and professional, and his schedule is quite flexible. The location and atmosphere are great!
