Whiplash FAQs

If you have whiplash, the discomfort can reduce your range of motion and affect your daily activities. At Expressions Chiropractic and Rehab Center in Cedar Hill, TX, we provide various non-invasive treatments to alleviate your pain and help your body recover. Before visiting us, take a look at some frequently asked questions about whiplash below:


What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash occurs when your head and neck are moved forward and backward during an auto accident. This movement can hyperextend the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the neck and result in severe neck pain. Even if you don’t notice any apparent symptoms, it’s important to seek treatment to identify any underlying injuries.

What Are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

Whiplash can cause a variety of symptoms, such as the following:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Muscle spasms
  • Fatigue
  • Blurry vision
  • Difficulty focusing

How Long Does It Take to Recover from Whiplash?

Recovery time varies from person to person. Many people recover within a few weeks, but some may experience symptoms for months or even longer. Chronic pain and long-term complications are possible in severe cases.

How Can Chiropractic Treatments Help?

At our practice, we utilize multiple methods when treating whiplash. We may use chiropractic adjustments to correct any misalignments and prove relief. These adjustments may be combined with massage therapy, which reduces inflammation, enhances circulation, and speeds up the healing process.

In addition to the adjustments and massage therapy, we can teach you exercises to help increase your range of motion and reduce pain. Once you’ve healed, our auto accident chiropractors can provide nutritional counseling and ways to improve your posture to prevent neck pain.
