Understanding Whiplash from Car Accidents

Whiplash, caused by a sudden strain on neck muscles during a car crash, reduces neck mobility and can lead to severe upper body injuries. Quick diagnosis and treatment by your Franklin TN chiropractor are essential for a speedy recovery.

Signs of Whiplash

Symptoms of whiplash can appear immediately or take days to weeks to manifest, including:

  • Nausea
  • Back pain
  • Limited neck and shoulder mobility
  • Migraines

Importance of Headrests

Modern headrests significantly reduce whiplash risk. Ensure:

  • The top edge is taller than your temples.
  • The headrest is within 10 cm of your head.

Other Causes of Whiplash

Whiplash can also result from sports injuries or falls. Proper treatment and therapy can lead to full recovery.
