Why Suffer from Whiplash?

It has been long known that whiplash injuries can stretch, strain, or tear the ligaments, muscles, and tendons in your neck as the head snaps back and forth.

After a car accident, please don’t let anyone tell you that if “nothing shows up” on an x-ray, there’s “noth­ing wrong” with you! Soft tissue injury, including ligament tears or disc bulges, won’t appear on an x-ray. We see patients five, ten, or twenty years after an accident who were misinformed about the consequences of whiplash.

It has been long known that whiplash injuries can stretch, strain, or tear the ligaments, muscles, and tendons in your neck as the head snaps back and forth. That’s why, if whiplash is ignored, you can set yourself up for future problems, such as degenerative arthritis. According to one of the country’s leading whiplash experts, we now have a completely new model of whiplash. Ongoing research has given us a better understanding of what happens during this type of injury.

Researchers have found that during a rear-end collision, the lower neck; goes into hyperextension (backward motion), while the upper part of the neck goes into flexion (forward movement). That means the bottom and top of your cervical spine are going in opposite directions, forming the letter “S.” The S-shape puts high stress on the spinal bones and the disc, causing injury (subluxations).

Dr. Miller is specially trained to correct spinal subluxations and disc problems naturally, through the use of spinal adjustments. Is it any wonder that the prestigious Journal of Orthopedic Medicine referred to a group of whiplash victims who improved by 85.5% during a 4-month program of chiropractic care!
