Whether or not you have painful symptoms, if you've recently experienced whiplash, it's a good idea to see a whiplash chiropractor to make sure you don't have any hidden issues that could cause future health problems. At Symmetry & Flow, our goal is to help quickly reduce pain and mobility issues while always carefully considering your long-term health. We start with a thorough evaluation, to make sure we understand the types and severity of your injuries, as well as how they are impacting your lifestyle.
A whiplash injury occurs when a persons head is "whipped" back and forth in a sudden movement. Whether in a car accident, in a work related fall, or in domestic abuse. The symptoms of whiplash occur within 24 hours of injury, however, in many cases the symptoms may develop after a few weeks.
Whiplash is a painful and frustrating injury that can severely limit your regular daily activities and lifestyle over the short and long term when not treated correctly by a whiplash chiropractor. The symptoms are often agonizing and can include:
Headaches / Migraines
Numbness or tingling in arms
