Injuries to the neck caused by a rapid movement of the head backward, forward, or side to side, is referred to as “whiplash.” Whether a result of a car accident, sport, or work injury, whiplash or other neck injuries warrant a thorough chiropractic check-up.

Your symptoms are often the result of tightened muscles that react to either muscle tears or excessive movement of joints from ligament damage. The muscles tighten in an effort to splint and support the head, limiting the excessive movement.

The biggest danger with these injuries are that symptoms don’t always show up right away, can take weeks to develop, or left untreated, can last years!

Too often people don’t seek care until more serious complications develop. Even after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, as high as 56% report they still suffer with symptoms two years later.

Scanning for Injury

In the past, a typical whiplash injury where no bones were broken, was hard to document. Soft tissue injuries do not show up on x-ray and insurance companies would deny coverage. Adding insult to injury, the patient suffering all too real pain was considered to be a fraud, a liar, or at best a hypochondriac.

New imaging devices (CAT Scans, Magnetic Imaging, and Ultra-Sound) may show soft tissue damages and insurance companies cover most whiplash treatment. If you’ve already had studies performed, Dr. Langlitz will review them with you to determine the appropriate course of action.
